MS Word 2000: Closing Forms In A Document From Another Document With Code
I have a project, in which I use a global template to manipulate different other templates. In those templates there are Userforms built in to gather information to use in a MailMerge. The problem I'm having is that I want only to hide the forms in the templates themselves, and close them in the global template when the whole application is closed. The trouble is that I can't find a way to access the open forms from the global template. Can anybody help me?

How Can I Pass Data From Textbox To Word Document In Vb6?
if somebody has a different code, it's accepted to see.

what if i want to use this code:

Private Sub cmdButtom_Click()

Dim WordObj As Word.Application
Set WordObj = CreateObject("Word.Application")
Dim objWord As Word.Document
Set objWord = WordObj.Documents.Open(FileName:=App.Path & "INVOICE.doc")
WordObj.visible = true
With objWord.Bookmarks
.Item("NAME").Range.Text = txtName
.Item("ADDRESS").Range.Text = txtAddress
.Item("CODE").Range.Text = txtCode
.Item("PHONE").Range.Text = txtPhone
.Item("FAX").Range.Text = txtFax
End With
Set objWord = Nothing

End Sub

the error message now is:

"user-defined type not defined"

it doesn't recognize "dim WordObj As Word.Application
so the problem is with "as word.application"

but it recognizes set objword=CreateObject ("Word.Application") , there is no error from the compiler when i use that command.

what should i do so that it recognizes the "dim WordObj As Word.Application" command?
do i need to change something in references or anywhere else?

How Can I Extract Text From A Word Document TextBox
i have been working on word Document files.

each document has same text format.

i m using the code below to extract text from it,


Dim sFileName As String 'Name of files within the folder will be stored
Dim i As Integer 'This will count the files read***
Dim wrd As Word.Application
Dim wrdCount As Long 'Number of characters within the file
'Get the first file with extension "DOC" ***
sFileName = Dir$("C:Virology*.DOC") '***
Do While sFileName <> "" '***
Set wrd = New Word.Application 'Create obj of word application
wrd.Visible = False
wrd.Documents.Open "C:Virology" & sFileName
wrdCount = wrd.Documents(1).Characters.Count
Text1.Text = Text1.Text & vbCrLf & i & wrd.Documents(1).Range(0, wrdCount).Text
Set wrd = Nothing
sFileName = Dir$ '***
i = i + 1

This works good for all the characters in the document but the problem rises when word textbox appears in the document.

I am doing VB as part of a project at school. I need to present this project using Word Documents. How can I show code snippets in Word so that the font, formatting and colour are the same as it looks in Excel VBA (or the Visual Basic suite editor). This is purely for presentation purposes.

Opening Word Document From Excel When The Word Document Is Read Only
I'm trying to open a Word document from Excel and have hit a snag. The file I'm trying to access is Read-only and the code stops when the "This file is read-only..." prompt displays. How do I get past this? Here's the code that I have so far (thanks to some help from this forum):

stPathName = Range("B4").Hyperlinks(1).Address

If Dir(stPathName) <> "" Then
Set wdApp = New Word.Application

wdApp.DisplayAlerts = wdAlertsNone 'Tried to turn off the prompt, but it didn't work.
Set wdDoc = wdApp.Documents.Open(stPathName) 'Code stops here and waits for the user to respond to the prompt.
Set wdDoc = Nothing

Does anyone know how to do this or know of a website that has source code that does this? I can't find anything anywhere.

Each Page/Worksheet/Slide goes on a seperate page. Print formatting is retained (landscape/portrait) and if the imported Page/Worksheet/Slide is larger than the page im merging/importing to, it should auto-resize to fit the page.

Error 4605 Calling Word.Document.Save With Word 2002 SP1
I have a test VB6 exe project with a WebBrowser control, called web1 (added via Project, Components, Microsoft Internal Controls). My project also references the Microsoft Word 10.0 Object Library.

As well as the WebBrowser control, my form has a Save button (cmdSave). Here is the complete code:


Private g_objDocument As Word.Document

Private Sub cmdSave_Click()
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim strFileName As String
strFileName = App.Path & "WordWrapper.doc"
web1.Navigate strFileName
End Sub

Private Sub web1_NavigateComplete2(ByVal pDisp As Object, URL As Variant)
Set g_objDocument = pDisp.Document
End Sub

The idea is when I run the exe, it loads a Word document into the WebBrowser control. This document is also assigned to
a global Word.Document object, g_objDocument, when web1 navigates to it. The problem occurs when I try to save the document (in cmdSave_Click). I get the error:

"The Save method or property is not available because this document is in another application."

This error occurs with Word 2002 SP 1 (on Windows XP), but not with Word 2000 SP3.

Please help.

VB In Access To Find And Format A Word In A Mailmerged Word Document
I use my Access data base to create mail merged letters to our customers. Not only are the names etc stored on the database I also store the content of the letter in memo fields. I have occasions where I want the newly created letter to have some words bold. After having VB code open the main document, mail merge then close the main document I run the following code. It works the first time round, the specified word becomes bold. However after closing the letter and running it a second time the new letter opens but no changes are made and I get an error. "Run Time error '462' : The remote server machine does not exist or is unavailable". This gives me a Debug option. When selecting debug The first row in this code is selected.

With ActiveDocument.Content.Find

    .Font.Bold = False
    .MatchCase = True
    .Text = "SATURDAY"
    With .Replacement
        .Font.Bold = True
        .Text = "SATURDAY"
    End With
    .Execute Format:=True, Replace:=wdReplaceAll
End With

If I leave the new letter open and re run it the code opens a second new letter with no errors, however it does not make the changes to the newest document only the first new document it finds. ie If I then close the first one created and rerun it the second document will have the changes made and the third one does not change. The error only occurs once I have closed all new documents and try to open another letter.

Hope someone can help

Word Automation - Retaining The Numbering Format In New Word Document
Hi all,

I am using word automation to read a word document. I use word automation to read the word document page by page and paste the contents of each page in a new document.

The problem i am facing is, the word document which is read contains Heading1,Heading 2 etc and these are numbered. When I paste these pages onto a new document the numbering is not retained. (Eg., if my Heading1 number is 2.1 when i paste it in a new document the Heading1 number is shown as 1.1)

VBA: Creating Word, And Sending Data To A Word Document Using Ranges
The following code works fine when it is executed only once in any instance of the VB program.

It is OK provided I do not close Word, and it will create multiple instances of the document into the same instance or word.

Screen.MousePointer = 11
WordApp.Documents.Open ("C:Program FilesWill WizardTemplatesClauseLib.doc")
set MyDoc = Documents.Open(FileName:="C:Program FilesWill WizardTemplatesClauseLib.doc")
set FldRng(1) = MyDoc.Range(Start:=MyDoc.Bookmarks("Name").Range.End, End:=MyDoc.Bookmarks("NameEnd").Start - 1) 'read bookmarks into range object variables
FldRng(1).Text = ClauseHold 'put the stuff into the document
WordApp.ActiveDocument.SaveAS FileName:=("C:Program FilesWill WizardTemplates emp" & Trim(Str(TMPNum)) & ".doc")
WordApp.Visible = true
set WordApp = nothing
set MyDoc = nothing
Screen.MousePointer = 0
Command8.Enabled = true
Exit Sub

If Word is closed, and the code is executed again, an error occurs "the remote server machine does not exist or is not available" The only remedy for this is close and re-start the VB application containing this code.

A Search Of A Word Document And .XLS Document
I need to search a word document for time values that look like this 13:43:42. Find them in a spreadsheet document. Once found there are 3 columns of data in the .xls that correspond to the time. This then needs to go into a .txt file. Then need to search the word document again for the next time and do again. When done the final .txt file should have the time and cooresponding data across the page. Who out there can put this together to run in a macro?

Word: Counting A Specific String In A Word Document
Hi all,

After visiting the Word FAQ I couldn't find any clue for my query:
I would like to count (in VB) how many times the string "Yesterday"
appears in a word document I am working on.

By using the manual Replace function (replacing "Yesterday" by "Yesterday"),
Word tells you how many replacement it has done and therefore how many
instances of the string "Yesterday" were in the document.

Can anyone point me in the right direction about using VB to find out
how many times "Yesterday" appears in my document, please?

Many thanks

Selecting A Particular Word From A Word Document (.doc) Through Visual Basic 6
I am a developer using Visual Basic 6. One of my program accepts some values through text boxes and then creates a Word document. The text boxes are optional, and the created Word document contains only non-empty values along with appropriate labels. I am able to apply styles (bold and underline) to entire paragraphs. But the user wants me to apply bold formatting only to values entered by him and not to the labels which describe those values. Please help me.

Thank You.

Word Form &gt;&gt; Process &gt;&gt; Word Document
Please be gentle, as this is my first foray into VBA. To make matters worse, I'm not a programmer, just someone who needs to get something done. My guess, based on what I want to do, it that I can do it easiest in VBA, but I am hoping this forum will help flesh out that answer for me.

In a nutshell, I am trying to create a document (possibly a Word form?...) that has a definite format with fields to be filled in (mostly numberic values, checkboxes, or free text). This form will be filled out by our techs at a customer site. They may do this 'live' with Word open, or they may print it out, then fill in the document later from their handwritten copy.

Next, I would like to 'process' their answers by feeding some information directly into an output document (Word hopefully). Now, some fields like name, address, etc... will go straight over and don't require manipulation. Some other data will need to be processed.

For example, if the tech fills in 34, I might want the output document to put 'this text' under a certain heading. If it is >34, then some other text, less, maybe no text. I'd also like to be able to change some graphics based on limits. i.e. if the value is less than this, insert this picture into the output document at a specific location, if not, insert this picture.

So, in general, before I go down the road of learning a language... do the members here think VBA would be a good choice for this? Would I 'read' from the input document in Word Excel, process in Excel and then pump data out to the output docment, etc... I am looking for advice whether this is;

1. fairly straightforward, understanding that I would need to learn some VBA.
2. possible
3. a good choice. i.e. would another language, or a pre-done software make a better choice.

My contraints are that my company has Office 2000 rolled out, WITHOUT Access. We use Lotus Notes and Access is apparently frowned upon. I am an optimist, so I expect it's possible with careful design and help from the experts who've been down these roads before.

Thanks in advance for any help, insight, advice or code.
