I want to copy paste some color-coded VBA code (via Crayon Syntax Highlighter on Wordpress site) to a Word 2016 document.

When I do it the usual way it loses the formatting.

Is there a way to paste and keep the beautiful color-coding please? (sample attached)

Thanks

Thanks. But it doesn't work for me. I used 'Keep Source Formatting' from Paste Options.

The sample code is here

Does it work for you? Anybody?

Thanks

The colours are not in the saved text, but are the result of interpretation by the VBA editor.

You can do it with Notepad++. You can download and use it freely,

Export the code to a .bas file in the VBA IDE and open it with Notepad++. If it isn't immediately coloured, chose VB as the Language setting

Graham, I need the code for a teaching book I'm writing in Word 2016. I'd like the code to look nice and pretty as in the Syntax Highlighted code on my Wordpress site.

I'm wondering, is there a 'syntax highlighter' that's a sort-of-plugin for Word?

You can use the Windows snipping tool to get the code as is (formatted) and paste it in word as an image
That could be very helpful when writing a book as you won't be able to edit the code by mistake while writing the book
