I have a makro that unprotects a document, goes to the end of the document, and then reprotects the sheet, wich works great when I specify the text in the makro. However, I want to assign an autotext instead, so here is my try. Could you fix the autotext part, since that is the only thing not working properly:

Thanks a lot

Sub Macro3a()
    Dim aDoc As Document
    Dim strPassword As String
   
    strPassword = ""
    Set aDoc = ActiveDocument
    If aDoc.ProtectionType <> wdNoProtection Then
        aDoc.Unprotect strPassword
    End If
    aDoc.Bookmarks("\EndOfDoc").AutoTextEntries ("Schaetzung 1")
    aDoc.Protect Type:=wdAllowOnlyFormFields, Password:=strPassword
 End Sub
