    Yes this is existing documents that need to be formatted according to the shop's specifications. Unfortunately they don't want to go to XML. Nonethless, the formatting would involve

    1. moving from cell to cell, parsing English/French text
    2. Moving cell to cell to formatting tables that span sometimes more than 500 pages (it is done using a do while loop/move next. I'm not sure if you have seen this before, but word does not like tables larger than a couple of pages!)
    3. Find and replace (document is sometimes more than 1000 pages long)where the find and replace has to be done in a do while (not able to use the find replace all function).

    What I am looking for is to be able to format the document using a Word API with functions like Word's find replace all. But, I need to be able to modify the find replace all function. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.


    I need your opinion. I need to write a program that will allow user decided formatting of large word documents. Is there a better option than doing it with a Macro.

    Explanation: Many of the calls would a find and then replace within tables that span many pages (makes it very slow). Another example is moving from cell to cell to modify the text as needed and so forthl. This becomes very slow because of the screen refreshing and because the document is so large.

    Can someone suggest something?

    Thanks in advance.
