Checking a list of words against a list in another document RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I have a bit of a challenge, I have one Word 2003 Document with a list of words in, what I need is some kind of automated process of checking another document against this list of words, and for any matching words in the second document to be highlighted.  Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

  • Hiya,

    Do you know how I could change that macro so it picks combinations of words that are all on seperate lines, for example one word in the check list may be "amazing", it picks up that fine, but another is "increase your sales", it picks up all three seperately, but it is the combination that is important and I am interested?

    Each word or comination of words in on a new line

    Many thanks Bradley
