Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word (in Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.dll)

int Move(
	ref Object Unit,
	ref Object Count
)

Parameters

Unit
Type: System.Object%
Optional Object. The unit by which the collapsed selection is to be moved. Can be one of the following WdUnits constants: wdCharacter, wdWord, wdLine, wdSentence, wdParagraph, wdSection, wdStory, wdCell, wdColumn, wdRow, or wdTable. The default value is wdCharacter.
Count
Type: System.Object%
Optional Object. The number of units by which the specified selection is to be moved. If Count is a positive number, the object is collapsed to its end position and moved backward in the document by the specified number of units. If Count is a negative number, the object is collapsed to its start position and moved forward by the specified number of units. The default value is 1. You can also control the collapse direction by using the Collapse method before using the Move method. If the range or selection is in the middle of a unit or isn't collapsed, moving it to the beginning or end of the unit counts as moving it one full unit.

Return Value

Type: System.Int32

This method returns an Integer value that indicates the number of units by which the object was actually moved, or it returns 0 (zero) if the move was unsuccessful.

The start and end positions of a collapsed selection are equal.

Moving a Selection object collapses the selection and moves the insertion point either forward or backward in the document.
