Macro in Word to Search by Named Style

oaktrees asked
Last Modified: 2020-03-16
I've got a style that I do lots of commenting in.  

Microsoft Word has got a search by style built-in, but it's pretty clunky.

Is there any way to modify this Macro to have it search for a named style?

The style name I'm using is


And it is a character style.

Sub aaag_HeaderDown()
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
Selection.GoTo What:=wdGoToHeading, Which:=wdGoToNext, Count:=1, Name:=""
End Sub

Sub aaah_HeaderUp()
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
Selection.GoTo What:=wdGoToHeading, Which:=wdGoToPrevious, Count:=1, Name:=""
End Sub

Open in new window

My thinking here is that f I can get a Macro to run the style search, I can set two keyboard shoorcuts and blaze through to the comments I need to see.

Many thanks!!
