    Automate AutoText (Word XP / SP2)

    Is it possible this just can't be done with VBA?

    I have a global template with two AutoText entries in it. Manually, I can insert the AutoText into any document. If I try to automate this (with normal.dot as the attached template), I either get

    <pre>NormalTemplate.AutoTextEntries("DocID").Inser t Where:=Selection.Range, _
    RichText:=True</pre>


    -or-

    <pre>ActiveDocument.AttachedTemplate.AutoTextEntri es("DocID-").Insert Where:=Selection.Range, _
    RichText:=True</pre>


    Of course, normal.dot does not have this autotext entry -- I have checked and double-checked. And it must be true because when I try to run this code, I get a member-of-the-collection-does-not-exist error.

    Is this just one of those things you can do manually but not with automation? <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>

    Why yes, it does indeed. Yippee! <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    And now that I can see the "Search" link at the top of the page, I can find these things for myself!

    Thanks again, Kim
