A Userform that populates Quick Parts?
Hello, I am new here and from what I have read this looks like the best place to ask my question!
I have created a document template with multplie quick parts. The quick parts details all aspects of a given subject and at the moment I am going to ALT > N > Q and just scrolling down the quick parts and selecting the ones I want which is great but I was thinking is there a faster way to do this?
What I really want is to have a picking list at the start of the document with all the quick part titles listed with a check box. If one of the boxes is checked the whole quick part is displayed at a certain point in the document.
Does anyone know if this is even possible? To create a tick box that will populate a quick part once checked?
Thanks in advance for anyone that might have any ideas!!

There is no doubt that it would be possible to create a userform with a multi select listbox containing the descriptions, the names of the building blocks and the bookmark names they pertain to in three columns (the second and third set to zero width so, in effect, hidden)
You can then call the following macro for each selected item to write that item to the appropriate bookmark in the document
Sub InsertItem(strBuildingBlock As String, strBMName As String) Dim oRng As Range, oEnd As Range With ActiveDocument On Error GoTo lbl_Exit Set oRng = .Bookmarks(strBMName).Range oRng.Text = "" Set oEnd = oRng.Next oEnd.Collapse 1 Application.Templates(ThisDocument.FullName). _ BuildingBlockEntries(strBuildingBlock).Insert _ Where:=oRng, _ RichText:=True oRng.End = oEnd.start - 1 oRng.Bookmarks.Add strBMName End With lbl_Exit: Set oRng = Nothing Exit Sub End SubGraham Mayor - Word MVP
