    Current line number & first letter of string is first letter of the line

    Hello all,

    I am working on a excel macro where a word file is opened and a list of string are searched.

    I want to check if the string being searched is positioned at the start of a line. But i don't want the system to use cursor or selection, a simple find and execute and to check if the first character of the selected string is the first character of the line.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Word isn't designed to work with lines, as such, since its use of information from the active printer driver to optimise the page layout means what starts a line on one PC might not start the same or any line on another PC. Word can always tell you whether a string starts or ends at the start or end of a paragraph, respectively, though. Hence, you need to be clearer about what you mean by 'the start of a line'.
