Update Word Document with Excel Information using VBA

Excel Range to Word Template using VBA

Most often we maintain list of contacts in Excel workbook and it needs to be transferred to Word document (made from some template). Here is a simple snippet that can help:

The code is used to copy the content from Excel range shown below to a Word document:

<><> <><> <><> <><> <><> <><> <><> <><> <><> <><> <><> <><> <><> <><> <><> <><> <><> <><> <><> <><> <><>






516 418 1234


Girish Kutty

516 418 6752


Ravichand Koneru

777 213 213


Sub CopY_Data_To_Word()

Dim oWA As Word.Application

Dim oWD As Word.Document

Set oWA = New Word.Application

Set oWD = oWA.Documents.Add("C:\Users\comp\Documents\") ' Replace with your template here

For i1 = 2 To Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Row

oWD.Bookmarks("Name").Range.Text = Cells(i1, 1)

oWD.Bookmarks("ContactNo").Range.Text = Cells(i1, 2)

oWD.Bookmarks("Address").Range.Text = Cells(i1, 3)

oWD.Bookmarks("Email").Range.Text = Cells(i1, 4)

'Code for saving the document

Next i1

' Releasing objects etc

End Sub

Bookmarks are added to the Word template and whenever a new document is created from the template, the document has those bookmarks.

The code above places the information from the Excel sheet to the specific Bookmark ranges

    This seems to work ok until here: Set oWD = oWA.Documents.Add("C:\Users\comp\Documents\")

    It then crashes and does not open the Word doc.
