expression.Add (FileName)

expression Required. A variable that represents a 'HangulHanjaConversionDictionaries' collection.


Name Required/Optional Data type Description

Return value



If a file with the name specified by the FileName parameter doesn't exist, Microsoft Word creates one.

The Dictionaries collection includes only the active custom spelling dictionaries. Dictionary objects that are derived from the Languages collection don't have an Add method. These include the Dictionary objects returned by the ActiveSpellingDictionary, ActiveGrammarDictionary, ActiveThesaurusDictionary, and ActiveHyphenationDictionary properties.

Use the HangulHanjaDictionaries property to return the collection of custom conversion dictionaries. The HangulHanjaConversionDictionaries collection includes only the active custom conversion dictionaries.


This example removes all dictionaries from the list of custom conversion dictionaries and creates a new custom dictionary file. The new dictionary is assigned to be the active custom dictionary, to which new words are automatically added.

With HangulHanjaDictionaries 
 .Add FileName:="C:\My Documents\MyCustom.hhd" 
 .ActiveCustomDictionary = CustomDictionaries(1) 
End With
