vba for coloring Word cells in a table

Looking for help with a VBA script that will set the background color of a table to a keyword in each cell.

The procedure is as follows:
1. step through each cell of a Word table
2. locate the color keyword (green, red, blue, etc) in the cell
3. set the cell background color to the color keyword found in step 3
4. delete the color keyword from the cell, but leave any other tex

Thanks in advance for the help

Let me get this straight. You have a word document which contains a table
The table has multiple columns and rows and each cell has a word in it
If this word is the name of a color you want the background color of that cell to change to that text?
johnfaig,Not to be a pain or anything, but what if the other text in that cell has text that looks like a color, but is not?Otis ReddingBlue Sky SoftwareI played Greensleeves on the piano, but she wasn't all that impressedAlso, what version of Word is this for?  Office 2007 made radical changes to how coloring is done...Patrick
