Inserting text into a word document using a macro

I am trying to write a macro to insert a word at the beginning of each paragraph based on a selection in a Microsoft Word document.  For example, "1. Some text here" would change to "WORD 1. Some text here" after running the macro.  So far I have this, but I only want the Macro to run with a selection, not the whole document.

Sub addNotes()

    iParCount = ActiveDocument.Paragraphs.Count
    For j = 1 To iParCount
        sMyPar = "Note " + ActiveDocument.Paragraphs(j).Range.Text
        ActiveDocument.Paragraphs(j).Range.Text = sMyPar
    Next j

End Sub

Thanks.

Hi,

pls try

Sub addNotes()
    Set myRange = Selection.Range

    For Idx = 1 To myRange.Paragraphs.Count
        myRange.Paragraphs(Idx).Range.Text = "Note " + myRange.Paragraphs(Idx).Range.Text
    Next

End Sub

Open in new window
