    Selection with VBA for Word

    Line 1
    Line 2
    Line 3
    Line 4
    ......
    the end

    I have a multi-page text. Is there a way to choose from the 4th line down at the end of that text? Thank you all.

    Yes, but we'd need to know a lot more about the document structure and the content you're working with.

    If by line, you mean paragraph and if you mean the fourth line on page one then:

    Sub ScratchMacro()
    'A basic Word macro coded by Greg Maxey
    Dim oRng As Range
      Set oRng = ActiveDocument.Range.Paragraphs(4).Range
      oRng.Collapse wdCollapseEnd
      oRng.End = ActiveDocument.Range.End
      oRng.Select
    lbl_Exit:
      Exit Sub
    End Sub
    ... however, as Paul states, that works on the very limited conditions given.

    @lamnbj Has either of Paul's or Greg's responses been helpful? if not, can you indicate where they seem to come unstuck?
