A collection of characters in a selection, range, or document.
Assembly: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word (in Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.dll)
There is no Character object; instead, each item in the Characters collection is a Range object that represents one character.
Use the Characters property to return the Characters collection.
Use Characters(index), where index is the index number, to return a Range object that represents one character. The index number represents the position of a character in the Characters collection.
The Count property for this collection in a document returns the number of items in the main story only. To count items in other stories use the collection with the Range object.
