Inserting Text in a Document

Use the InsertBefore method or the InsertAfter method of the Selection object or the Range object to insert text before or after a selection or range of text. The following example inserts text at the end of the active document.

Sub InsertTextAtEndOfDocument() 
 ActiveDocument.Content.InsertAfter Text:=" The end." 
End Sub

The following example inserts text before the selection.

Sub AddTextBeforeSelection() 
 Selection.InsertBefore Text:="new text " 
End Sub

After using the InsertBefore method or the InsertAfter method, the Range or Selection expands to include the new text. Use the Collapse method to collapse a Selection or Range to the beginning or ending point.
