Collapses a range or selection to the starting or ending position. After a range or selection is collapsed, the starting and ending points are equal.
expression Required. An expression that returns a Range or Selection object.
Direction Optional Variant. The direction in which to collapse the range or selection. Can be either of the following WdCollapseDirection constants: wdCollapseEnd or wdCollapseStart. The default value is wdCollapseStart.
If you use wdCollapseEnd to collapse a range that refers to an entire paragraph, the range is located after the ending paragraph mark (the beginning of the next paragraph). However, you can move the range back one character by using the MoveEnd method after the range is collapsed, as shown in the following example.
Set myRange = ActiveDocument.Paragraphs(1).Range myRange.Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseEnd myRange.MoveEnd Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=-1
This example collapses the selection to an insertion point at the beginning of the previous selection.
This example sets
myRange equal to the contents of the active document, collapses
myRange, and then inserts a 2x2 table at the end of the document.
Set myRange = ActiveDocument.Content myRange.Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseEnd ActiveDocument.Tables.Add Range:=myRange, NumRows:=2, NumColumns:=2
