    Fit large XL range to Word doc

    Can't seem to Google up a working solution to paste and fit a large copied range from XL to a Word document. Here's my unsuccessful attempts. The WordApp is the active Word process. Any help welcomed. Dave
    'WordApp.ActiveDocument.content.PasteSpecial Placement:=0 'wdInLine
        With WordApp.ActiveDocument
        .Range.autofitbehavior 2 'wdAutoFitWindow
        '.Range(0, .Characters.Count).autofitbehavior 2
        '.content.autofitbehavior 2
        End With

    Not much luck with this one. I chased a solution down quite a few rabbit holes before arriving at a fairly simple solution which is to basically copy the XL range, paste it to the Word document as a table and then format the Word table. I've included some code to keep "chunks" of the XL range together if they cross 2 Word pages. The "chunks" of the range must be separated by a blank row in XL and custom styles must be added to the Word document. This section of code is commented out so just the basic range transfer and formatting will occur. To separate the "chunks", uncomment the relevant code (not the stuff with the '* in front of it), and add the custom styles to your document as indicated in the code. The font size may need to be changed if your range doesn't fit. Dave
