To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 3 years agoYour code will only remove inlineshapes, consider the following as I have sometimes seen problems when using collections
Do While ActiveDocument.Shapes.count > 0
Do While ActiveDocument.InlineShapes.count > 0
I use these when changing a file to text only. I also convert all tables to tab delmited
Do While ActiveDocument.Tables.count > 0
I have not seen any problems with do while loops, but have occasionally when deleting from a collection that I am playing with
I alternatively use .count to get a total of items and use a for next with a step -1 to work on them backwards.
By the way, I work on a Mac and objects sometimes act funny and some windows VBA objects are not even available.
