Merging Macros


S

SueBK

I'm an avid Word macro user, but usually stick to things I can record
rather than write.
I have a four macros, all the same code with slight tweaks, that open a
excel spreadsheet, find the words in column A, replace them with th
words in column B, highlight the change, and then close the excel s/s.
found the code for the macro online and I have a reasonable handle o
how it works.

I have four separate macros so that each one can use a differen
highlight colour to draw my attention to different issues:
1 - finds and replaces, highlights yellow
2 - finds, but has no replacement values, highlights green
3 - finds an opening bracket, followed by characters, highlights blue
4 - finds legislation in column A, highlights pink.

What I'd like to do now is merge all four macros, so I can run them of
a single button. Ideally, I'd like to actually keep the four separat
(so I can also run them individually) and have a 5th macro to batch run
Sounds simple, but I can't get it to work.

The code for the individual macros is:
Sub <NAME>()
'File name with terms to check
Const strXLFile = "C:\Users\name\Documents\Editing Information\Macr
Files\Replacements.xls"
Dim xlApp As Object
Dim xlWbk As Object
Dim xlWsh As Object
Dim blnStart As Boolean
Dim r As Long
Dim m As Long
' set highligher colour to yellow
Options.DefaultHighlightColorIndex = wdYellow


On Error Resume Next
' Get or start Excel
Set xlApp = GetObject(, "Excel.Application")
If xlApp Is Nothing Then
Set xlApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
If xlApp Is Nothing Then
MsgBox "Can't start Excel.", vbExclamation
Exit Sub
End If
blnStart = True
End If

On Error GoTo ErrHandler

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
' Open workbook
Set xlWbk = xlApp.Workbooks.Open(strXLFile)
' Reference to first worksheet
Set xlWsh = xlWbk.Worksheets(1)
' Get last used row
m = xlWsh.Cells(xlWsh.Rows.Count, 1).End(-4162).Row

With ActiveDocument.Content.Find
' Initialize find/replace settings
.ClearFormatting
.Replacement.ClearFormatting
.Replacement.Highlight = True
.MatchCase = True
.MatchWholeWord = True
.MatchWildcards = False
' Loop through rows
For r = 1 To m
' Get text to find
.Text = xlWsh.Cells(r, 1)
' And replacement
.Replacement.Text = xlWsh.Cells(r, 2)
' Replace all
.Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll
Next r
End With

ExitHandler:
' Clean up
On Error Resume Next
Set xlWsh = Nothing
xlWbk.Close SaveChanges:=False
Set xlWbk = Nothing
If blnStart Then
xlApp.Quit
End If
Set xlApp = Nothing
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Exit Sub

ErrHandler:
' Inform user
MsgBox Err.Description, vbExclamation
' And go to cleanup section
Resume ExitHandler

In your "last" macro, just call the macros that you want to run (they will run
in the specified order). For example:

Sub MyFirstMacro()
'code here...
End Sub

Sub MySecondMacro()
'code here...
End Sub

Sub RunAllMyMacros()
MyFirstMacro
MySecondMacro
End Sub
