Use the SetRange method to resize an existing range in a Microsoft Office Word 2003 document.

To reset an existing range

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

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

The following example shows the entire procedure.

Example

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

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