    Change Bar (Word 2000)

    I've written a macro that turns Track Changes on, Ctrl Xs my selection, Ctrl Vs the selection, and turns Track Changes off. Leaving the reinserted selection with a Change Bar to the left. Sometimes when this macro is run on a paragraph the Change Bar is intermittent. If I go back and manually make changes to the lines not marked the Change Bar shows up. Is this a bug or I have done something wrong?

    If you are trying to track the selection as a fresh insertion then the order of your steps is wrong. Try:
    1. Cut the selection
    2. Turn on Track Changes
    3. Paste
    4. Turn off Track Changes

    Andrew,

    The fix you suggest is sound but still doesn't work like single line manual change bars. What could be wrong?

    Thanks,
    Dan
