Excel to Word
Edit word documents from Excel. This code is really cool, it opens up word document My Form.docx from Excel and populates all its content controls with their ContentControl numbers. Now getting these numbers you can quickly write code to insert specific data into these controls. (see bottom of this page for examples of configuring content controls in Word)
VBA code to find control numbers
First run this code to determine the content control numbers of the word document. Now getting these numbers you can quickly write code to insert specific data into these controls.
Public Sub populateForm()
Dim wordApp As Word.Application
Dim wDoc As Word.Document
Dim i As Integer
Set wordApp = CreateObject("word.application")
Set wDoc = wordApp.Documents.Open("C:\My Form.docx")
wordApp.Visible = True
totalFields = wDoc.ContentControls.Count
For i = 1 To totalFields
If wDoc.ContentControls(i).Type = wdContentControlCheckBox Then
wDoc.ContentControls(i).Checked = True
wDoc.ContentControls(i).Range.Text = i
Procedure to create form fields
Create a word document. This will be your template form.
Add required content controls. These act as containers which the excel code can easily populate. Below are examples of adding two types of content controls.
Example 1 - Adding text field
Example 2 - Adding check box
