Would appreciate assistance with a WORD VBA routine.

Based on the current selection, change the font color to Green for the entire line of text for any line where the first non-blank character is a tick mark ( ' ).  

I am copying VBA code into a WORD document and want to color the comment lines green in the document.  I am familiar with Excel VBA but have no experience with WORD VBA so the more explicit the better.

Thank You,
Jerry

See if this gives you the results you're looking for:
Sub Color_Rem()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
With ActiveDocument.Content.Find
  .ClearFormatting
  .Text = " '[!^13]{1,}"
    With .Replacement
      .Text = "^&"
      .ClearFormatting
      .Font.Color = wdColorGreen
    End With
      .Forward = True
      .Wrap = wdFindContinue
      .Format = True
      .MatchWildcards = True
      .Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll
    End With
  Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Open in new window
