#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <Word.au3>

Local $oWord = _Word_Create("Word.Application")
Local $oDoc = $oWord.Documents.Open(@ScriptDir & "\Report_20221229.doc")

Local $oRange1 = _Word_DocFind($oDoc, "STRING_1")
Local $oRange2 = _Word_DocFind($oDoc, "STRING_2")
Local $oRangefinal= $oDoc.Range($oRange1.start, $oRange2.start)
$oRangefinal.delete

I'm trying in an input word .doc file, to delete the text between two words or characters (example : "STRING_1 blablablablabla bla bla bla STRING_2") I would like to delete everything from STRING_1 blablablablabla bla bla bla "; in the file there are multiple intervals repeating indefinitely The script I tried to do works only once, then returns the error The requested action with this object has failed.

I also tried other methods like _Word_DocRangeSet but I can only set the end or start range not a range of strings to delete, I ask for your help or if you have other ideas I'm totally in the panic tunnel

Use _Word_DocFindReplace with the following parameters:

  • $sFindText: "STRING1*STRING_2"
  • $sReplaceWith: "STRING_1 STRING_2"
  • $bMatchWildcards: True
