Range.TextRetrievalMode Property (Word)
Returns a TextRetrievalMode object that controls how text is retrieved from the specified Range. Read/write.
This example retrieves the selected text (excluding any hidden text) and inserts it at the beginning of the third paragraph in the active document.
If Selection.Type = wdSelectionNormal Then Set Range1 = Selection.Range Range1.TextRetrievalMode.IncludeHiddenText = False Set Range2 = ActiveDocument.Paragraphs(2).Range Range2.InsertAfter Range1.Text End If
This example retrieves and displays the first three paragraphs as they appear in outline view.
Set myRange = ActiveDocument.Range(Start:=ActiveDocument _ .Paragraphs(1).Range.Start, _ End:=ActiveDocument.Paragraphs(3).Range.End) myRange.TextRetrievalMode.ViewType = wdOutlineView MsgBox myRange.Text
This example excludes field codes and hidden text from the range that refers to the selected text. The example then displays the text in a message box.
