    Exporting tags/Styles

    In a Word form how would one best export tags with their accompanying text boxes, which indicate styles in another application?

    i.e. <Name> <Title> <Address>
    This looks like a job for XML.

    Re: Exporting tags/Styles

    Which version of Word?

    I'm sorry but your terminology (which may be correct) is throwing me off. Are we talking about fields here, bookmarks, or textboxes. Perhaps if you would attach a sample document with items labeled it would help.

    Re: Exporting tags/Styles

    Sorry, they are standard textboxes in a UserForm.

    It was a standard Word97 template with macros available on the office intranet with 5 text boxes on top,
    5 to the left and five to the right...imagine the outlay of a business card.

    I have moved the input to a series of UserForms and want to simply export the data and those tags on the forms to a delimited text file.

    Using the radio buttons activates the appropriate UserForm with the appropriate number of text boxes.

    Problem is those text boxes have styles attached to them.
    i.e. <Name> <Title> <Address> enclosed in tag brackets.
    It is their desire that we get those tags with the text data entered, to facilitate the second stage of applying the existing styles in the publishing/processing application (i.e. Pagemaker)

    I hope this is less confusing.
    Thanks for your reply.
