    Editing a user defined function

    I have previously created an "xlam" file containing some user defined functions. I can't work out how to edit the file (so I can changed one of the functions). Any ideas? Thanks.

    Hi

    As promised, attached is an attempt at checking for failed hyperlinks (and INCLUDEPICTURE targets) in Word documents.
  17. Find text with coloured background (Any)

    For the record.

    I wanted my macro to test whether a document contains any text with a coloured background. I tried "ActiveDocument.Content.Font.Shading.BackgroundPatternColorIndex", but it...
  18. Re: Set range equal to field (any version?)
