Hello,
I have a code for wordmerge but, the match case doesnt seem to work .
I have TO:  and To: to replace and it is not able to distinguish between the cases and replaces everthing .

                    If dtSQL.Rows(0)("Guestname").ToString Is DBNull.Value = False Then

                        With oDoc.Content.Find

                            .Forward = True
                            .Format = False
                            .MatchCase = True
                            .MatchWholeWord = True
                            .MatchWildcards = True
                            .MatchSoundsLike = True
                            .MatchAllWordForms = False
                            .Font.Bold = False
                            oDoc.Content.Find.Execute(FindText:="TO:",
                    ReplaceWith:="TO: " & dtSQL.Rows(0)("Guestname").ToString, Replace:=Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdReplace.wdReplaceAll)
                        End With
                    End If

                            .Forward = True
                            .Wrap = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdFindWrap.wdFindContinue
                            .Format = False
                            .MatchCase = False
                            .MatchWholeWord = False
                            .MatchWildcards = False
