Default How do I write a macro to find, select, and then delete a Section.

I have a document in Word that is a form to fill out with instructions. I've
placed all the instructions in the same section, separate from the form. I
want a macro that will go bact to the Instructions section, and then delete
that section, so what is left is the one page form.

anyone write a macro like that?

Thanks!

Hi nw_nick

Try something like this:
ActiveDocument.Sections(1).Range.Delete

For testing, make a backup of your document before you begin!

Hope this helps.
