Word 2007: Split large document into individual files based on text string

Q: Word 2007: Split large document into individual files based on text string

Hello all,
I am fairly new to macros and am looking to split a large word document into smaller files based on a text string within the document, and then save those files as individual word documents, or as a bonus, PDF documents. The text string is "HEADER DATA".

Basically, I want the macro to find the text string "HEADER DATA", then select that page and all pages up to but not including the next instance of "HEADER DATA", then cut those pages from the original document, create a new document with the same formatting/ page layout, and save that document with a new file name. I want the process repeated until the end of the document, and each file saved with a new file name.

Some attributes about the file:

The text string "HEADER DATA" is always in the same location on a page, but is not at the top of the page.
The format and layout of the new document must match the current document.

Here is something I came up with (don't laugh too hard, lol). This will extract the first pages as intended, and saves the new file, but then Word stops responding. I don't quite know what the error is. Thank you in advance for any help.

I've done a bit of searching on this subject, and came up with a thread on this forum from a few years ago where someone made a similar request, but that person also needed to replace the "@" symbol throughout the file with a "_", which added some lines in the code that are making this noob even more confused. He/ She wanted to split documents based on email addresses. Here is a link to that somewhat relevant thread:

So I am officially desperate! I worked on a project in Microsoft Word 2007. I then went to go open it the next day and all of the text was completely gone!! I am only a beginner when it comes to computers so I have absolutely no idea what happened.
To better understand the problem here were the chain of events:
I worked on 2 documents, saved them in a folder, and then closed MSWord
I then worked on them the next day not realizing that for some reason they were opened as "Read Only"
Seeing that, I copied the the text and saved them in new documents
I went to Documents and attempted to move the new documents into the folder with the originals but an error message reading something like "this action cannot be completed because the file is open in another program" when the file was NOT open
In my frustration I attempted to move it over and over again to no avail
I gave up and closed the Documents folder and turned off my computer
The very next day I went to open the project and both the original documents and the copied ones were COMPLETELY EMPTY!!!
the files were still there but the all of text was completely gone!
Through Microsoft forums I've repeatedly tried the "Recover Text from any File" and "Open and Repair" methods
They've remained completely empty
I don't think I can redo the project correctly in the time it is due! Please any info will help. Thanks

Hi! I've been looking for a piece of VB code that can accomplish this. The pasted data below is from an EDI text file.

Two people use my computer, Nathan and Michael. Both are Administrators. When Nathan is logged on his Word 2003 documents are saved in: C:\...Nathan\Documents.

When Michael is logged on, his Word 2003 documents are also saved in: C:\Nathan\Documents.

Obviously, the way it should work is Nathan's Word documents should be saved under his log-in and Michael's documents should be saved under Michael's log-in. I can't make that happen. Here's what I've tried so far:

I go to Control Panel, Tools, Options, File Locations.

When I click Modify I can indicate a different folder for saving Word documents, but I can't change the location "Nathan." Also, any change I make just adds the new extension to the existing. Example:

C..\Nathan\Documents Modified to: C..\Nathan\Documents\Documents

just an example. Whatever I choose is added onto the existing location

C..\Nathan\Documents.

I hope I've explained this clearly. Any Word 2003 experts out there who can help on this one? It's really got me puzzled. Thanks in advance.

A:Can't set document location for individual users in word 2003

Michael does not have his own login, Like you and the other user have. You can confirm this by going to C:\Users. Is there a Michael user? If not, Go to Start/Control Panel/User Accounts and create a new user profile for Michael. This will create a new Documents folder under Michael's user name. Log out of your user profile and log in as Michael. Open Word up go to Tools/Options/File Locations. Make sure the default Save location is C:\Users\Michael\Documents. Michael can set his own password for his login.

Hi all,
This is just a preliminary request for advice before I undertake writing a fairly substantial VBA macro.

My plan, in short, is as follows:

- User receives a daily Invoice file. The data from this is to be dropped onto an Excel Table I've prepared (let's call this the Invoiced Table) in the Master File, which will allow some formulae, such as IFs and Vlookups to static tables, to auto-populate. Each day's data is to be appended to the bottom of the table.

- User receives a weekly Paid file. The data from this will be dropped into a second Excel Table (let's call this the Paid Table) on another worksheet in the Master File.

- Once the weekly file data has been dropped in, the user will run the macro. This will compare records from the Invoiced Table against the Paid Table using at least 4 (probably 8) different sets of lookups. In a simplified example, these might be 4 different customers.

- Each set of lookups will result in some matches. For each matching record for a specific customer, fields from the Invoiced and Paid tables need to be combined into a new record on a seperate worksheet.
So in a simplified example, Record 1 might have an Invoice Number in the Invoice Table that matches the Invoice Number in the Paid Table. I'll need to copy the Invoice Number, Customer Number and, say, the Invoice Date field from the Invoiced Table, plus the Paid Date from the Paid Table.

- I'll then need the macro to delete those lines from both t... Read more

I have a project where I need to search a large amount of text files on my home PC. I recently upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7. My research indicated this feature was available in Windows 7.

If you do a search in Windows XP, you get a bunch of fields. You can pick to search for text INSIDE the particular sub folder structure.

I have found this feature in Windows 7, but it is different. I have tried using wild cards but it does not seem to work properly.

Thanks for any advice, if you need further assistance, I could make a video to show the issue.

When saving a Word 2007 document as a webpage (htm, html), an extra folder is automatically created besides the hmtl document itself. This folder contains background information like pictures, wallpaper etc. Is there a way to prevent that folder from being created in the first place? I've got Word 2000 on another computer, and when I save my word documents as html files over there, that extra folder is not generated. The only time that folder is created in 2000 is if my documents contain pictures, wallpaper etc. In Word 2007, it is created all the time, even though my documents are just plain text.
 

A:Solved: Word 2007, saving document as html document: how to get rid of extra folder?

Managed to find the solution, it was very simple after all. One has to save the document as a filtered webpage and click "yes" when a box pops up warning you that you will use certain featuers which are specific to Office2007, such as the background. Then the document will save without that extra folder and files.

I have two questions regarding documents created in Word 2007...

1) Can links be created within a Word document? For example, can I click on and item my table of contents and have the document jump to that particular section of the document?

2) Also, is there a way to make sections of the document hidden until the user clicks a specific word or graphic in the document?

I'd like to specify a particular instruction and include a "Show example" link that would make a detailed example appear for those who needed the extra help.

Thanks everyone!

A:Word 2007 - Links within a document? Hide/Show sections of a document?

If you created table of contents through References - Table of Contents, you can hold Ctrl and click on the item in that table, word will take you there. This feature is standard.

Also, to navigate inside document you can use bookmark option.
Insert bookmarks. Word 2010 Bookmarks
Then insert Hyperlink - in the window select second tab "Place in This Document" and choose your bookmark.

As for hiding parts of document, I do not think that is possible.
You can create that in HTML document with javascript, but not in Word document.

Hi there!

I've got a word document that I need to split into new documents. Each page has a specific value on it that I could use to copy the pages that have this value on them into a new workbook. i.e. the first 5 pages of the workbook might have the value 2468 on it. the next 3 pages might have the value 3579 on them, the subsequent 8 pages might have the value 6789 on them.

Can anyone show me how to do this in VBA? I was thinking that I could maybe:

1) find the last page that the values appear on
2) add a page break
3) copy the pages of the book into new documents based on locations of page breaks I've added.

But I don't know how to do that, especially the bits with question marks...

Can anyone help me out?

Greetings! I've searched everywhere for the answer to this issue. It must be common, but I can't find it anywhere. I'm using MS Word 2007, but the problem was the same in 2003. I sometimes get a text box that is behind regular text. I need to move it. One normally just selects a text box and drags, or cut and paste, it where one wants. However, when it is behind text, it can't be selected. I have found no way to select normal text and "send it behind."

How do I get to this text box that is behind my regular text? I've been told to "move the regular text out of the way, then you will be able to get to your text box." But the text box moves with text!

Thanks,

I recently installed Office 2007 on a new Vista 64 bit system. I was unable to install my previous version of WordPerfect Office 12. When using WP on my previous Windows XP system, I was able to go into the word processor, click open, go to the wp folder (where I kept all my documents) and do a search based on a particular word I was looking for. For example, I could type in the word "hebrew" in the files box and each document file that contained that word (not only in the file name but in the contents of the file) was listed. I could then preview the contents of each document file and open the one I wanted.

Does this feature work in Word 2007 under Vista 64? I have only been able to find a file name with the word I type, even though I know many other document files contain the word I type in the files box. This has been very frustrating because it means I have to preview every file to find the one I want rather than just the files with the typed word in its contents.

Thank you for your time in this matter.

How do I find and remove hidden data and personal information in my Office documents?

You can use the Document Inspector to find and remove hidden data and personal information in Office documents that were created in Office Word 2007, Office Excel 2007, Office PowerPoint 2007, and earlier versions of these Office programs. It is a good idea to use the Document Inspector before you share an electronic copy of your Office document, such as in an e-mail attachment.
Open the Office document that you want to inspect for hidden data or personal information.
Click the Microsoft Office Button, click Save As, and then type a name in the File name box to save a copy of your original document.

This problem has actually been observed in previous versions of Word, but when a user splits their screen, makes edits to the top half of the split screen, then removes the split, Word tends to refocus or "shift" the view of the document about a half page downward on the screen. Is there any way to prevent Word from doing this auto-refocus when removing the split screen feature?

Hello all,

On the 12th October I was editing a Word 2007 document on my Vista Home laptop. Throughout editing I pressed Ctrl S to save the doc over the previous version. I copied data in from several other files.
I went back yesterday to edit the document again and it has disappeared. The only version of the doc is a previous version dated 21st Sept.
I searched on all files modified after 11th Oct just in case I had saved it under another name. Not in there. The files I copied data from did come up in the search results though, soi knwo the search function is working.
I checked the default Autosave location - not in there.
I checked the recycle bin - the doc is not in there and neither are any ~ files or autosaved files. I haven't emptied my recycle bin for months.
I cannot find a word doc modified afetr the 11th October.

Can it really just have disappeared? It is my MBA dissertation paper and I worked on this edit for an awful lot of hours.

Many thanks.

Word 2003 Macro question:
I have 14 x 320 page word documents (School subject reports) created via
mail merges. At irregular intervals in each document there will be a page
which I wish to delete (the student does not do this subject). There is text
present from the mail merge template, however the is no data inserted into
this page. For example, on the pages I wish to delete the teacher name is
blank.
I have created a macro and attached it to a toolbar so that I can delete the
active page manually as I scroll through the document. However I would rather
have the macro search through the document, and where it finds the string
"Subject Teacher : " with no name next to it, then it can call the delete
page macro I made. However I cannot figure out how to make it search for that
string PLUS the missing teacher name (many different teacher names).
Can anybody help with this?
 

A:Deleting a Word page based on text search macro

I was offered the following solution on another forum. It works very well.
Thanks to Jean-Guy for this.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Try something like the following. You will need to find a way to determine
the exact string you need to search for when there are no teacher names
(strSearch).

'_______________________________________
Dim strSearch As String
Dim rgeStart As Range

Set rgeStart = Selection.Range

strSearch = "Subject Teacher :" & Chr(13)

With ActiveDocument.Range.Find
.Text = strSearch
Do While .Execute
With .Parent
.Select
With Selection
.Bookmarks("\Page").Range.Delete
.Characters(1).Delete
End With
End With
Loop
End With

rgeStart.Select

Application.Browser.Target = wdBrowsePage

Hello,

I am hoping someone can help me here - I am trying to create a macro that prints Current Page based on specific text. I found script from 3 years ago (on this forum) that works nearly perfectly for us with only minor formatting adjustments. I'll post that below, but first want to explain the one change I am trying to make (you'll see I know little about Macros...)

The script below searches in text boxes, I need it to just search the document, not confined to text boxes. We have a series of letters that are generated automatically and then later sent to clients. These are generated in massive numbers, and we only print out the ones that come from our locations (7 in total). Right now we have to eyeball to see which ones we will print, but I know we can build a macro that will do it.

Here is the script I am basing working off of, which I called sort:

(The first part just sets margins to narrow, please ignore, it's the second part where I want to break away from the Text Box requirement and just look at the text within the document, and if it matches, print that page. I appreciate any help with this

Sub Sort()

With Selection.PageSetup
.LineNumbering.Active = False
.Orientation = wdOrientPortrait
.TopMargin = CentimetersToPoints(1.27)
.BottomMargin = CentimetersToPoints(1.27)
.LeftMargin = CentimetersToPoints(1.27)
.RightMargin = CentimetersToPoints(1.27)
.Gutter = CentimetersToPoints(0)
.HeaderDistance = CentimetersToPoints(1.25)
.FooterDistance ... Read more

Is there a simple way to capture a block of text in a Word (2007) document and paste it in another Word document as a graphic image exactly as it is in the source document?
 
I just discovered that the method I have been using for years actually doesn't work as well as I thought. I had been selecting the text I wanted, copying it to the clipboard (Ctrl+C), then pasting it into the target document using Paste Special (Alt+Ctrl+V) and then selecting Microsoft Word Word Document Object. I then remove the link by selecting the image and using Ctrl+Shift+F9.
 
I guess I had never copied an entry from the middle of a numbered list before. When I did that just now, I discovered that Word renumbered the list so that it showed up as "1.". The same thing happens if I paste it as an enhanced metafile picture. Putting aside what I consider the idiocy of of this happening, I now need a way to get a copy that has not been reformatted or renumbered. (sheesh)
 
I tried saving the document as PDF and capturing that text. That's even worse. It comes in as unformatted text.
 
I tried using a screen capture tool (SnagIt). It works, but the resolution is not great.

A:Capture text in Word document as graphic

Which version of Windows?Windows Vista (as long as it is not Vista Basic) and newer has the Windows Snipping Tool. It can capture a portion of the screen as an image file than can then be imported/pasted into the document. It may or may not suffer from the same resolution issue you encountered with SnagIt.The other option to try is to turn off the "smart" lists in Word 2007. Personally, I tend to turn those off anyway as they tend to annoy me more than they help me.

Okay, I seem to be lucky enough to get all of the "weird" situations. I have a three page document and just two areas on page 3 show the words as totally being reversed. The original document was created in Word 2003 (on a PC) and the laptop uses the Microsoft Office 2010. When the document is opened on the laptop, this issue happens, but when I take the same jump drive and open it with the PC using Word 2003, everything is perfect.

Is there any way to fix this on the laptop documents? Any idea what causes this or why it happens?

I saw this before here at work but didn't even realize it had to do with whatever program is opening the existing document until today - duh!

Thanks!

I just sent an e-mail to a doctor but it came back undelivered--apparently the address was out of date. Rather than type it all over again, I assume I can simply copy my e-mail text to a new Word document using the Edit feature. What are the steps to doing that?

A:How To Copy E-mail Text To A New Word Document

That should be quite straightforward. Open your email client and find the original email - there will probably be a copy in the "Sent" or similar named folder. Double click the email to open it in a full window.Press Ctrl+A (i.e. hold down the 'Ctrl' key and press the 'A' key at the same time.) Then press Ctrl+C You can close the email window and minimise the email client at this point.Open word with a new blank document and press Ctrl+V the text from your email should appear in the Word document, the font will be changed to the default Word font but otherwise the text will be the same.Hope that's what you were after.

I am trying to put together a package, made up of several different word documents. Some of the information is the same from one document to another. Is there anyway I can put in a formula or something to have the information transfer to all the different documents, in the appropriate place within the documents, without copying and pasting it each time? Ideally I would like to be able to put the information on the first document, which happens to be a label, and then have certain fields automatically copy to other fields in multiple documents. Not sure if this is possible, or if it is just wishful thinking.
Thank you to anybody who can help me.

hi there - my father is working on a large word document in word 97 - he is not very computer literate and has not been backing up his files. He has somehow managed to delete virtually all of the text on around 160 pages, and this version of his document has been saved (he only has 2 characters on 1 page in total). I have gone into the versions option in the File menu, but there are no previous versions listed, I guess because he had not activated this function. Everything points toward the information being lost, except that if i look in the file's properties it seems that the file still appears to be about the right size (around 660kb). Does this mean that his text may still exist somewhere in the file, and may then be recoverable? (i would have thought with virtually no text the file should be much smaller). It also says that there have been 98 revisions of his documents. Is there any way to access an earlier revision, prior to him deleting all of this text?

I would appreciate any information or advice extremely, even if it is just to clarify that he has lost this file for good.
Thanks
Kym

Hi,

We have been trying to fix a very large equation in a sheet of paper, but now we feel powerless.

The equation has a curly bracket at the left side, it is a piecewise defined logical relation (similar to a function). The problem is that each lines inside the curly bracket is too long, more than the paper (horizontal or vertical), and if we try to split it in several lines weird things happen, for example if parenthesis are not matched at the end of the line then it does not create a new line in the curly bracket, but inside the parenthesis.

The only solution seems to be to split each line of the equation in several different lines, but looks like that's no possible, there are very big parts inside parenthesis and other stuff. We really have no clue of what to do.

Looks like microsoft word should detect when the line is too long and split it, duplicate operators, etc., but it is not done inside curly brackets.

Thank you for your help and sorry for the bad English.

I have a legal form to fill out in WORD and it keeps printing the entries in the text fields in blue. The A text color tool is greyed out. How can I make it black again? I seldom use Office so I'm a newbie at this one.
 

A:can't change text color in WORD document fields

If the form has been designed as a protected Word document "form" (probably that is the case since it is a "legal form") then they may have formatted it in that manner because that is how they want it filled in, with your content in blue?

Hence the options are unavailable for you to change.

Hi everyone, this is my first post so pardon any mistakes...

I need to create word documents for our product line skus that contain descriptions, pricing an an image of the product. I would like to take the information from our database, create a document for each item and then save the document to a unique name (product#), all done automatically. My thought was to use mail merge for the text fields but I don't know if I can merge images as well. I came across an add-in for word called OnMerge that claims it can automate the merging of images.
My question is multi-part:
1) Has anyone done this using Word 2003 (on XP or W2003 server) ?
2) Has anyone accomplished this using other programs ?
3) Has anyone used OnMerge with Word to create documents as described above ?

Any information that will point me in the right direction would be much appreciated.
