Disable undo (list of changes)


C

Chiwa

Hey all,

Word keeps a list of all changes you have made while editing a document.
I want to disable that, is it possible?

I have made a vba-program for something like mailmerging (a litte bit
complexer).
But after x numbers of changes I get an error like this:
"Not enough memory available. This operation cannot made undon. Would you
like to continue?"

It is very annoying, it kinda screw up my "batch" program. I have a fast pc
with a lot of memory, so that's not the problem.

Can somebody help me with tihs?

Thx!

Hi Chiwa

If you Google on this topic you'll get a lot of hits. Document complexity if a fairly
common problem. There are a number of things you can do about it:

Kill the undo buffer, do this before/after each group of updates:
ActiveDocument.UndoClear
Periodically save the document, if necessary close it and reopen it as well.

HTH + Cheers - Peter

That solution just clears the undo stack at the time it is run, rather than disabling it indefinitely until it is turned back on. I need to do the latter.

Yeah, good luck with that. Do as Peter Hewett said ***NINE YEARS AGO*** and
just clear the undo stack regularly.
