How can I write VB script to MSword that change all the paragraphs that start with the word "Today" so the 15 first characters of the paragraph will be bold?

Many thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Perhaps something like this will do what you want.
Sub BoldStuff()
Dim par As Paragraph
Dim rng As Range

    For Each par In ActiveDocument.Paragraphs
        If par.Range.Text Like "Today*" Then
            Set rng = ActiveDocument.Range(par.Range.Start, par.Range.Start + 15)
            rng.Font.Bold = True
        End If
    Next par
End Sub
