Word macro changing style format?

Last Modified: 2020-02-12
I am using some Microsoft VB code for a macro to convert text links in a Merge-created 200-page document to clickable hyperlinks. The problem I have is that when the macro runs, it also changes some other styles. Is there an easy way to modify the Range to include only hyperlinks?

Sub ConvertURLTextsToHyperlinksInDoc()
  Dim objDoc As Document
  Set objDoc = ActiveDocument
  Word.Options.AutoFormatReplaceHyperlinks = True
End Sub
