Good afternoon,

How can I amend the Microsoft Word 2003 Autocomplete list using a VBScript? I want to remove an existing entry and replace.

I resolved the issue with the attached code.


'Function to replace a Microsoft Word autotext entry
'Takes the template location, old and new entries as parameters
Function AutoTextReplace(strTemplate, strOldEntry, strNewEntry)
 
Dim i
Set objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application") 
Set objDoc = objWord.Documents.Open(strTemplate, False) 
Set objTxtEntry = objWord.NormalTemplate.AutoTextEntries.Add(strNewEntry, objWord.Selection.Range) 
objWord.NormalTemplate.AutoTextEntries(strNewEntry).Value = strNewEntry 
For Each i In objWord.NormalTemplate.AutoTextEntries 
   If i.Name = strOldEntry Then
	objWord.NormalTemplate.AutoTextEntries(strOldEntry).Delete
   End If
Next 
objWord.Quit 
 
End Function
