Word vba code to return the position of the cell I'm in

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Hi experts
I suspect this is probably simple, but I have no idea how to do it, or go about it.

I've selected a particular table and I want to find particular text in there. Then I want to go to that text and return the value of the cell I'm in, for example Row(4), Cell(2).

Can someone tell me how to do this.
Dim myrange As Range
set myrange = ActiveDocument.Tables(2).Range
  myrange.Find.Execute findtext:=texta
   If myrange.Find.Found = True Then
   'goto that text. What cell am I in?
   End If
