public interface Range

Each Range object is defined by a starting and ending character position. Similar to the way bookmarks are used in a document, Range objects are used to identify specific portions of a document. However, unlike a bookmark, a Range object only exists while the programming code that defined it is running. Range objects are independent of the selection. That is, you can define and manipulate a range without changing the selection. You can also define multiple ranges in a document, while there can be only one selection per pane.

Use the Range method to return a Range object defined by the given starting and ending character positions.

Use the Range property of an individual object to return a Range object defined by the beginning and end of the object. The Range property applies to many objects (for example, Paragraph, Bookmark, and Cell).
