Concept Design - Microsoft Office Bookmark Renamer/Referencer

Recommended Posts



I'm relatively new to Labview and I created a tool that allowed me to obtain and rename the bookmarks in a Microsoft Word 2007 Document through Active X using the RGT for Word. I have attached two VIs, the first is the method in application and the second is the method itself. It is important for me to point out that to my knowledge Microsoft Word doesn't allow you to rename bookmarks it only allows you the ability to copy or delete them. I believe that this method coupled with the RGT could allow others to do some easy report manipulation or programmatic auto fill of created fields. I must warn everyone that because I am just a beginner, my code is a bit lacking in proper style and the method application is a bit shaky, impractical, and tends to throw errors in its current state (I am working to improve it).


I'm sure that there is a lot of feedback that can be given towards my code, style, and the inefficiency of the implementation of the method but the method itself is what I really want to share so that others can use it and implement something similar.


I know that it could save a lot of time.
