Excel search Word docs?

Discussion in 'Word VBA Beginners' started by Robert Crandal, Mar 4, 2011.

  1. Our primary data is stored in Excel 2007 workbooks, but
    some of our other data is stored in Word 2007 documents.

    Is it possible to put a macro in our Excel workbooks that
    uses any ADO techniques to search Word documents for
    data? We don't want users to manually open Word documents
    and search for data, as that seems to be sooo time consuming.

    I'm just wondering if it's possible to program Excel to search
    through a group of Word documents efficiently?? Would ADO
    be the fastest way to open and search and big collection of Word

    Thank you!
