Highlight parts of a word
I am sorry it is hard to give this request a meaningful title. This is the best I could come up with.
I am hoping someone will have a suggestion to help me. I want to be able to highlight or extract the 2nd and 3rd and 5th letter of the Last Name and 2nd and 3rd letter of the First Name in a list of names in a list of names in a Word table. It could be in Excel if Word is too hard.
I have to decipher codes in a task at work and it is a brain burning, time consumer.

A macro would be relatively simple but it is going to be complicated by how you plan to handle less common names such as "Li Na", "George St Clair", "Mary-Lou Van Houten" etc
Can you explain the point of the task?
You will need to post a sample document so that anyone writing the macro would know the input data format.Andrew Lockton, Chrysalis Design, Melbourne Australia
