Word VBA, add autotext with data from the userform only if checked

Hi guys,

I'm still novice with VBA so still learning, im trying to get my head around a functionallity that should be able to insert a Specific autotext (a table with some placeholders, which are embedded in the document already). and insert the text which you have entered in the userform, but only if its checked.

So in short.
* Tick a checkbox in the userform to true
* It will insert an Autotext, which is a placeholder at a bookmark - the placeholder itself has other bookmarks which needs to retrieve data from the userform.

I'm sorry if the explanation is a bit confusing, but i have attached a document with what i got so far... you might get a better insight of what i'm trying to do :)

Thank you in advance

I think that you need something like this:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
    If CheckBox1.Value = True Then
        My Template.BuildingBlockEntries("MyAutoText").Insert, _
             Where:=MyDocument.Bookmarks("MyBookMark1").Range, RichText:=True
        MyDocument.Bookmarks("MyBookMark2").Range.Text = TextBox1.Text
    End If
End Sub

I am having trouble with your file. My browser tries to display it.
That is because you embedded it into the question after uploading it.

You would need to change the code so that the names of the Autotext, Bookmarks, Userform controls and template fit your situation. I notice that you have put the Autotext in the template, so this code shows how to find the template for the active document.
Private Sub cmdOK_Click()
Dim tmpl As Template
If Me.CheckBox1.Value = True Then
    Set tmpl = ActiveDocument.AttachedTemplate
       tmpl.BuildingBlockEntries("Placeholder1").Insert _
       ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("Placeholder1").Range, True
        ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("Text1").Range.Text = Me.txttext1.Text
End If
MsgBox "Document pushed ok"

End Sub
