    Word XP FIELDS (Word XP VBA)

    In some wicked VBA code I'm writing for Word, I want to get all of the text that's on the same line as a particular field. The catch is that I don't want to actually SELECT the field; I just want to loop through the FIELDS collection in a document and display the text that surrounds each field in a dialog box. The problem is that the FIELD object doesn't have a RANGE property. Can anyone think of a workaround? I'm prepared to select the field (to return a SELECTION object) if I have to, and then modify the selection range, but that's not the most elegant way to do it.
