VBA Word 2010 convert document variable to text
I've set up some template (.dotm) letters using an autonew macro and userforms to collect data (entered by the user), which is then inserted in the document in the correct places.
Sooner or later somebody's going to try to edit the data - they'll decide to change the addressee's name or something - which will no doubt cause problems.
I can see two possible solutions. One would be, when people click on the text which is actually a document variable, to have the document pop up a form inviting them to change and re-save the variables. I don't know how to do this.
The other solution might be simpler - I hope it's easy when you know how. This would be to convert all the document variables in the document to text before saving the document.
I can't see how to do this - does anybody have any pointers, please?
