Question ID: 201612
I am trying to do some automation in Microsoft Word 2000 using Visual Basic, and I am stumped by a deceptively simple-looking problem. I want to have a subroutine copy some text out of the document and automatically put it in the document's "comments" property. I was able to find a BuiltinDocumentProperties method, but this is apparently read-only. Is there a similar way to access these properties that allows me to set them?

You can set this using Value. ActiveDocument.BuiltInDocumentProperties(wdPropertyComments).Value = "My Comment" - Hammer

Wow, I was closer than I thought. I was using "Set" in front of that and couldn't figure out why it wasn't working. Thanks for your help.
