I am in need of a macro that converts a document to autocorrect entries in microsoft word/excel.
A customer of mine has a system with some barcodes.. He scans the barcodes and automatically word replaces these barcodes (which are actually numbers) in the text he wants.
I have told him he could just copy .acl files from one computer to another, but he doesn't want to do this, he want to add a new xls-document (over 4000 records).
The xls-document contains 2 columns: 1 value to be replaced, 1 value which is the result of the replacement.
A001: Circle with diameter of 2cm
A002: Cube with diameter of 2cm
He used to use "smarttools autokorrekteur". It's basically a word-document with a macro which translates this way:
A001|Circle with diameter of 2 cm
AOO2|Cube with diameter of 2 cm
But the problem is he also has results of 1 page, so he just scans the barcode and a whole document appears with tables, tabs, enters, different font-size, etc..
If I use this macro and use a table, I get an erro message..
Now was my question if someone knew a way to use another tool or rewrite te macro or anything.. The macro document is included in this post ;-) And only in german, can't read it either :-P
500 points for the one who can provide me a solution!
