I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you are just talking about text with a specific red colour, you can do a Find and Replace operation.

Do Crtl+H to open the dialogue. click on the More button, choose Format, then Font. Select the colour in the' Font color:' box. Then Click OK and Replace All

Oops. I missed the fact that you want to know how to do it with a macro.
Sub DelRedWords()
    With ActiveDocument.Range.Find
        .Text = "<*>"
        .Font.Color = wdColorRed
        .Replacement.Text = ""
        .Forward = True
        .Wrap = wdFindContinue
        .MatchWildcards = True
        .Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll
    End With
End Sub

Sorry. It was only looking for words as requested. Here is how to delete all red text.


Sub DelRedWords()
    With ActiveDocument.Range.Find
        '.Text = "<*>"
        .Font.Color = wdColorRed
        .Replacement.Text = ""
        .Forward = True
        .Wrap = wdFindContinue
        '.MatchWildcards = True
        .Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll
    End With
End Sub
