Use the SetRange(Int32, Int32) method to resize an existing range in a Microsoft Office Word document.

To reset an existing range

  1. Set an initial range starting with the first seven characters in the document.

    The following code example can be used in a document-level customization.

    object start = 0; 
    object end = 7; 
    Word.Range rng = this.Range(ref start,ref end); 
    

    The following code example can be used in an application-level add-in. This code uses the active document.

    object start = 0;
    object end = 7;
    Word.Range rng = this.Application.ActiveDocument.Range(
        ref start, ref end);
    
  2. Use SetRange(Int32, Int32) to start the range at the second sentence and end it at the end of the fifth sentence.

    rng.SetRange(this.Sentences[2].Start, this.Sentences[5].End); 
    

To reset an existing range in a document-level customization

    // Reset the existing Range. 
    rng.SetRange(this.Sentences[2].Start, this.Sentences[5].End); 
    rng.Select();
    

To reset an existing range in an application-level add-in

  • The following example shows the complete example for an application-level add-in. To use this code, run it from the ThisAddIn class in your project.

    object start = 0;
    object end = 7;
    Word.Range rng = this.Application.ActiveDocument.Range(
        ref start, ref end);
    
    // Reset the existing Range. 
    rng.SetRange(this.Application.ActiveDocument.Sentences[2].Start,
        this.Application.ActiveDocument.Sentences[5].End);
    rng.Select();
