• If anybody has a useful macro, or a useful wildcard string for Microsoft Word.
    Please post here
    Here is mine for now,
    All Parentheses different font/smaller.
    In find option, enable wildcards and search for

    \(*\)
    

    And in the replace field enter

    ^&
    

    And in the format drop down menu change font and size.


  • Here is another wildcard string.
    If you have a document or a list in Microsoft Word and the names are like this.

    Moshe Yanky Geller
    Moshe Geller
    Burech Benzion Geller

    And want the last name before like this.

    Geller Burech Avrum
    Geller Moshe Yanky
    Geller Moshe

    And you don’t want to copy paste in excel, and split columns, and adjust columns and then merge columns without overwriting data.

    Then in Microsoft Word you can make a wildcard search for.

    (<*) ([! ]@)^13
    

    And replace with this

    \2 \1^p
    

    If you want a comma after last name, than replace with this.

    \2, \1^p
    

    If any of you have any other wildcards strings or macros please post here.

    Thank you.

    @pleasesmile Very usefull.

    There is one Macro, I allways use, and thats an Auto-save (Only works on Macro-enabled documents though).

    Sub AutoOpen()
        WordSaver
    End Sub
    
    Sub WordSaver()
        Application.OnTime When:=Now + _
          TimeValue("00:05:00"), _
          Name:="Saver"
    End Sub
    
    Sub Saver()
        ActiveDocument.Save
        WordSaver
    End Sub
    

  • @Master I believe that Microsoft Word has an auto save feature.
    By default it is set to 10 minutes, but it can be changed.
