Dear Experts:

Below macro is supposed to bookmark paragraphs a certain way where a user-defined style (user-style) has been applied.

The code does not find any paragraph where the user-defined style (user-style) has been applied. What is wrong with this code?

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas
Sub BookmarkInstancesOfStyle

Dim strLanguages As Variant
Dim i As Long
Dim frange As Range
 i = 0

Selection.HomeKey wdStory
Selection.Find.Style = ActiveDocument.Styles("user-style")
 
 strLanguages = Array("de", "en", "es", "fr", "it")
 With Selection.Find
 Do While .Execute(FindText:="", Forward:=True, _
 MatchWildcards:=False, Wrap:=wdFindStop, MatchCase:=False) = True
 Set frange = Selection.Range
 ActiveDocument.Bookmarks.Add "MainTOC_" & strLanguages(i), frange
 i = i + 1
 Selection.Collapse wdCollapseEnd
 Loop
 End With
End Sub

Hi Andreas,

Your code seems to work for me, but here is a slightly re-arranged version anyway.
Sub BookmarkInstancesOfStyle2()
    Dim strLanguages As Variant
    Dim i As Long
    Dim frange As Range
    
    strLanguages = Array("de", "en", "es", "fr", "it")
    Set frange = ActiveDocument.Range
    With frange.Find
        .Wrap = wdFindStop
        .Style = "user-style"
        Do While .Execute
            ActiveDocument.Bookmarks.Add "MainTOC_" & strLanguages(i), frange
            i = i + 1
            frange.Collapse wdCollapseEnd
            frange.End = ActiveDocument.Range.End
        Loop
    End With
End Sub
