Hi,

pls try

Sub macro()
Dim shp
Dim inshp
For Each shp In ActiveDocument.Shapes
    For Each inshp In shp.TextFrame.TextRange.InlineShapes
        If inshp.Field.Type = wdFieldOCX Then
            inshp.Delete
        End If
    Next
Next
End Sub

Open in new window

Didn't help,  ActiveDocument.Shapes.count returns 0. Did you try it yourself?

Hi,

I'm on Word 2010 that's why my code runs on my version

Could you try ActiveDocument.InlineShapes.count or ActiveDocument.Controls.Count

inlineshapes.count = 0; Controls.Count "- object does not support this property or method". (it's Word 2003)

So when you open it in 2010, you see the object in ActiveDocument.Shapes?

That's right in WD2010 I can see the TextBox (Shape) where the BarCode is

In my Version I can see the Barcode actually

So the solution apparently is to open it in Word 2010, and it will be repaired. Then probably resave back in 2003, if needed.
