How Do I Make a Word Bold in a Phrase When Automating Word in VB.Net?
Posted on 2014-04-22
I am building a Table using Word Automation in VB.Net and am currently filling the cells with strings. In this particular case the cell contains name and address information. I would like to bold the name and leave the remainder alone. I would like to do this on the fly and not have to search later. I think it would be possible to use a bookmark at the beginning of the cell and then again at the end of the cell and then search between bookmarks for something like square brackets enclosing the name. When found, the brackets would be removed and the text changed to bold. This could be done when the cell is filled and then repeated as other cells are filled. My problem here is I can't figure out how to set the bookmarks. Also, This might be a really dumb way to do it since I'm really good at doing dumb things.
So, what is the best way to do this? Thanks for your help.
