So I have a great macro that unprotects a document, goes to the end of the document, pastes an autotext, and then reproects the document. However, I need to manually  tab through the form fields in order to get to the newly inserted part. So here my question: How do I get the macro to automatically advance to the first form field of the newly pasted part once I run the macro?

Here is my current macro:

Sub Macro3a()
    Dim aDoc As Document
    Dim strPassword As String
    strPassword = ""
    Set aDoc = ActiveDocument
    If aDoc.ProtectionType <> wdNoProtection Then
        aDoc.Unprotect strPassword
    End If
    Application.Templates(aDoc.AttachedTemplate.FullName). _
        BuildingBlockEntries("Schätzung 1").Insert Where:=aDoc.Bookmarks("\EndOfDoc").Range
    aDoc.Protect Type:=wdAllowOnlyFormFields, Password:=strPassword
 End Sub
