I'm working on a project in Word 2010 and I need some VBA assistance. I'm using legacy text fields formatted as numbers and I need to do some calculations based on the values in these fields. I would have used content controls but firstly I started in Word 2003 and secondly I've got all this stuff in tables and the content controls are bigger than the space I have allocated in the table cells (although I have to admit I really don't have any experience with content controls). Anyway, each text field has a bookmark name and I have them set up to execute a macro when exited. What I don't know how to do is how to actually write the VBA that does this sort of stuff with bookmarked text fields. I've got a draft of how I want the calculations to occur, using the bookmark names but think I need to embed that in more sophisticated VBA. Anyone got a bit of time tonight (Saturday) or anytime tomorrow (Sunday) to take a look at what I've got and tell me how I need to modify it to actually make it work? I'm also going to post this on a couple STC mailing lists. Thanks much.
