    extracting text from text box

    ...and deleting the text box

    is there a simple way without difficult procedure codes ? MY VBA version is 7.1
    This is one of my questions on my previous post in reformatting pages on adding page numbers.

    Maybe something like the following will work with a selected floating text box
    Sub Macro1()
    Dim sText As String
    Dim oRng As Range
        Set oRng = Selection.ShapeRange.TextFrame.TextRange
        sText = oRng.Text
        Set oRng = Selection.ShapeRange.ConvertToInlineShape.Range
        oRng.Text = sText
        Set oRng = Nothing
    End Sub
    The problem however is that the text box will have been used to format the document in a particular way, which will be lost.
