Word 2003 - VBA code to find out if text is assigned as editable or not?

Hi Gurus

I can assign a range of text so that it can be edited by 'everyone' by using this code:

        Selection.Editors.Add wdEditorEveryone

And I can prevent a range of text from being edited by everyone by using this:

       Selection.Editors(wdEditorEveryone).Delete

But how can I test what has been set for a range of selected text?  I need to know if it has been assigned to everyone or not.  

I'm sure it's very simple but I can't find it.  Hope you can help.

Thanks

Hi,

it seems that the Editors Object can only return a Count

'If there is an editor
If Selection.Editors.Count >0 Then
' 
Else ' No Editors

End If

Open in new window

Actually you can get the Editor objects as well, but For Each doesn't work on the collection. You have to count through.
Dim ed As Word.Editor
Dim i As Integer

For i = 1 To Selection.Editors.Count
    Set ed = Selection.Editors(i)
    Debug.Print ed.Name
Next i

Open in new window

Both solutions have led me to get the macro information that I need, so am awarding the solution to both.  

Appreciate your help.
