vb macro from word 2003 does not run in word 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • i got a piece of vba code from other people. It worked fine in Word 2003 and even worked in word 2007, but stopped working in word 2010.

    This piece of code was used to format some texts in word. It find the words between two  <u> and underline the words, then <u> are deleted. However in word 2010, it deletes both the words and two <u>.  The problem seems to be the following: when the second <u> is found, the words before <u> is also selected/highlight. so when Word is asked to delete <u> the words before it is deleted too. This was not a problem in word 2007. Wonder if vba has changed from word 2007 to 2010.  Please help!. Thank you very much.

    Here is an example of text i like to forma.

    <u>summary<u>                <u>percent<u>       <u>sum<u>    <u>total<u>

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    'Fixing Underline <U>
    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Selection.HomeKey Unit:=wdStory

    While (OutSub = 0)
       WordBasic.EditFind Find:="<U>"
       If WordBasic.editfindfound() = False Then GoTo OutUnderline
       Selection.Delete Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=1
       Selection.Extend
       Selection.Find.Text = "<U>"
       Selection.Find.Execute

       Selection.Font.Underline = True
       
       Selection.MoveUp Unit:=wdLine, Count:=1
       Selection.Find.ClearFormatting
       Selection.Find.Text = "<U>"
       Selection.Find.Execute
       Selection.Delete Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=1
    Wend
    OutUnderline:
    If LargeFile = vbYes Then ActiveDocument.Save
