Word.au3 How to delete an empty line?

Recommended Posts

gfunk999

Hi all, long time no see ^_^ Does anyone know how to delete an empty line using word object? I'm attaching a TestDel.doc and some simple code of what i'm trying to accomplish. Basically I have three lines Line 1, Line 2, Line3, when I delete Line 2, I would like for Line 3 to shift up one line to eliminate the blank line.

#include <word.au3>

$sDocPath = @ScriptDir & "\TestDel.doc"

$Error = ""

$oWordApp = _WordCreate($sDocPath)
$oDoc = _WordDocGetCollection($oWordApp, 0)
$oRange = $oDoc.Range

    If $Error = "Errors Found" Then
        _WordDocFindReplace($oDoc, "Line 1", "Line 1 Replaced", 1, $oRange)
        _WordDocFindReplace($oDoc, "Line 2", "Line 2 Replaced", 1, $oRange)
    Else
        _WordDocFindReplace($oDoc, "Line 2", "", 1, $oRange)
    EndIf

_WordDocFindReplace($oDoc, @CRLF & "Line 2", "", 1, $oRange)

or

_WordDocFindReplace($oDoc, @LF & "Line 2", "", 1, $oRange)

Hi Authenticity,

It does not work becuase it's looking for @CRLF or @LF on the same line (prefix), so the string does not match. Did it work for you?

Thanks for your reply.

_WordDocFindReplace($oDoc, @CRLF & "Line 2", "", 1, $oRange)

or

_WordDocFindReplace($oDoc, @LF & "Line 2", "", 1, $oRange)
