    Predefined Bookmarks (Word 2000/2002)

    Way back in Word 6, Word had some predefined bookmark names. It seems to me I found out about them from one of Woody's "Underground Guides". Does anyone know if they are still around in Word 2000/2002, and better still - do you have a list?

    Thanks!

    In the Visual Basic Editor Help for Bookmark there is a short cut to a page headed "Predefined Bookmarks". I can't find this page from the contents or search screen. It lists the following...
    <table border=1><td>Sel</td><td>Current selection or the insertion point.</td><td>PrevSel1</td><td>Most recent selection where editing occurred; going to this bookmark is equivalent to running the GoBack method once.</td><td>PrevSel2</td><td>Second most recent selection where editing occurred; going to this bookmark is equivalent to running the GoBack method twice.</td><td>StartOfSel</td><td>Start of the current selection.</td><td>EndOfSel</td><td>End of the current selection.</td><td>Line</td><td>Current line or the first line of the current selection. If the insertion point is at the end of a line that is not the last line in the paragraph, the bookmark includes the entire next line. </td><td>Char</td><td>Current character, which is the character following the insertion point if there is no selection, or the first character of the selection.</td><td>Para</td><td>Current paragraph, which is the paragraph containing the insertion point or, if more than one paragraph is selected, the first paragraph of the selection. Note that if the insertion point or selection is in the last paragraph of the document, the "Para" bookmark does not include the paragraph mark.</td><td>Section</td><td>Current section, including the break at the end of the section, if any. The current section contains the insertion point or selection. If the selection contains more than one section, the "Section" bookmark is the first section in the selection. </td><td>Doc</td><td>Entire contents of the active document, with the exception of the final paragraph mark.</td><td>Page</td><td>Current page, including the break at the end of the page, if any. The current page contains the insertion point. If the current selection contains more than one page, the "Page" bookmark is the first page of the selection. Note that if the insertion point or selection is in the last page of the document, the "Page" bookmark does not include the final paragraph mark.</td><td>StartOfDoc</td><td>Beginning of the document.</td><td>EndOfDoc</td><td>End of the document.</td><td>Cell</td><td>Current cell in a table, which is the cell containing the insertion point. If one or more cells of a table are included in the current selection, the "Cell" bookmark is the first cell in the selection</td><td>Table</td><td>Current table, which is the table containing the insertion point or selection. If the selection includes more than one table, the "Table" bookmark is the entire first table of the selection, even if the entire table is not selected.</td><td>HeadingLevel</td><td>The heading that contains the insertion point or selection, plus any subordinate headings and text. If the current selection is body text, the "HeadingLevel" bookmark includes the preceding heading, plus any headings and text subordinate to that heading.</td></table>

    Yeah, those ones are there. But the way I remember it - the bookmarks I'm thinking of didn't appear in the regular help.
    The one I think I remember was calling a bookmark "address" and then Word would automatically use that text for the address of a letter. There were a couple of others.
    I'm going to have to dig that book out of storage! Another good reason for never throwing anything away!.

    Cheers

    There is a hidden AutoText entry called AddressLayout (I believe, you could search the Lounge to confirm), but it probably doesn't leave any evidence (such as a style or bookmark) that it is the address. Haven't tried it out, though.
