I agree that user should never see an exception, but I think it is even better to write correct code and avoid the exception, rather than displaying the error message.

This is a bad assumption! Did you write Microsoft Word? I'm betting you didn't, so why trust the work of other people whom you probably don't know, and code in another application where a whole different set of problems exist? Never do. Never trust user input, and never trust another application. Always account for problems that might occur. Do you think that Word blindly accepts input from calling functions?

And just because a parameter takes a value of true doesn't mean that the converse is false. Look again at the type: Variant. When a variant isn't specified, it is an empty or missing variant, hence using Missing.Value (or sometimes you see
Type.Missing).<br />
<br />
I found this example on MSDN: <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dv_wrcore/html/wrtskhowtosearchfortextinworddocuments.asp">How to: search for text in Word documents</a>[<a target=_blank title='New Window' href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dv_wrcore/html/wrtskhowtosearchfortextinworddocuments.asp">^</a>]. They use <code>Type.Missing
to find text. You have the right values for the ReplaceWith and Replace parameters. Also, you can search over the whole document (since in the example they set the range to the first two paragraphs) by using Document.Content instead of Application.Selection.Range, which - if I remember correctly - is an empty range anyway. I don't know about that, though - it's been a while since I programmed with the Office libraries. In any case, Document.Content is a Range over the whole document, which seems to be what you wanted anyway. Good luck!
