    Hello foi123,

    Your question is about code but you posted a video link and not a workbook with code in it. So, what is it you want to do?
    Sincerely,
    Leith Ross

    Hello foi123,

    Okay, do you have Word files with input fields? Do you want to transfer the input data from the Word document to an Excel worksheet?
    Sincerely,
    Leith Ross

    Hello foxi123,

    It took me some time to find the code. Here it is...

    'This macro finds multiple Word files in a folder, and pulls the values from all hte fields in them. It
    'will append any new information to the 'bottom of the sheet.
    '
    'if you decide to use Content Controls instead of Form Fields (using the top section of the Developer
    'Ribbon, you will need to find every instance of FormField and replace it with Control.
    '
    'Dim FmFld As Word.FormField changes to
    'Dim CCtrl as Word.ContentControl
    '
    'For Each FmFld In.FormFields changes
    'For Each CCtrl in .ContentControls
    
    
    Sub GetFormData_CCF()
    'Note: this code requires a reference to the Word object model
     Application.ScreenUpdating = False
     Dim wdApp As New Word.Application
    'For New Word.Application, remember go to Tools, References
    'enable the options- Microsoft Word 1# Object Library
    
    
     Dim wdDoc As Word.Document
     Dim CCtrl As Word.ContentControl

     If strFolder = "" Then Exit Sub
     Set WkSht = ActiveSheet
     i = WkSht.Cells(WkSht.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).row
    
    
    'on this line, notice that the file extension is .docx.
    'if you are using .doc files or .docm files, make sure
    'you change this line to match up with that.
     strFile = Dir(strFolder & "\*.docx", vbNormal)
     While strFile <> ""
     i = i + 1
     Set wdDoc = wdApp.Documents.Open(FileName:=strFolder & "\" & strFile, AddToRecentFiles:=False, Visible:=False)

    Hello foxi123,

    I decided the best course of action was to create a new and improved version of this macro. This version will check both doc and docx files in the selected folder. The macro will then check each document for input controls. Word has three different types: Content Controls, Active X Controls, and legacy Forms Field Controls.

    The macro will take the data from each control as they appear in the document, regardless of type, and copy the data into a column of the worksheet. The next column to the right is then used for the next control etc. When no more controls are found, the macro moves on to the next row and the next Word document.

    Here is the macro code...

    Option Explicit

    '           The number of columns can vary based on the number of controls
    '           in the Word Document.

    Hello foxi123,

    That's interesting. The macro I wrote does not produce that message. If you post a copy of the workbook then I could troubleshoot the code and get it working.
    Sincerely,
    Leith Ross
