Synchronizing Word text RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am writing a program to detect illegal single quotes by storing document text into a string, searching for single quotes, and then processing them. I find the single quotes all right, but when I use the position in the string to create a range and select the offending single quote in the document, it selects an entirely different character. I believe that the Word document contains formatting characters that are not copied into the text string so that the selection is out of synchronization with the text. Is there a simple way to relate a character in the text to the corresponding character in the document?
