Word 97 Selection of only form fields in macro ALL form fields

Word 97 Selection of only form fields in macro ALL form fields

Word 97 Selection of only form fields in macro ALL form fields

I am trying to spell check a document with many form fields. In a macro I need to "select" all of the form fields at once and then complete the spell check. I am able to select formfields one at a time and loop through them all, but the user has to press the NO key to move between each form field. This is the code I am currenty using. I would like to find a way to skip the looping routine and select all of the form fields, without selecting any of the non form field text. ie. not using SELECTION.WHOLESTORY.

Here is the code I am currently using.

Sub FormsSpellCheck()
' If document is protected, Unprotect it.
If ActiveDocument.ProtectionType <> wdNoProtection Then
ActiveDocument.Unprotect Password:=""
End If

Dim aStory As Range
Dim aField As FormField
For Each aStory In ActiveDocument.StoryRanges
For Each aField In aStory.FormFields

' Set the language for the document and spell check selection.
Selection.LanguageID = wdEnglishUS
' Perform Spelling/Grammar check.
If Options.CheckGrammarWithSpelling = True Then
End If
Next aField
Next aStory
' ReProtect the document.
If ActiveDocument.ProtectionType = wdNoProtection Then
ActiveDocument.Protect Type:=wdAllowOnlyFormFields, NoReset:=True
End If

End Sub
