 I have the following code which is supposed to search for the current date and then run an if statement checking     If Selection.Find.Found Then.
I know the document contains the date, but my If statement keeps returning as False.
Can anyone help?

Selection.Find.ClearFormatting
With Selection.Find
    .Text = Format(Date, "MMMM d, yyyy")
    .Forward = True
End With
Selection.Find.Execute
