Code Property

Returns a Range object that represents a field's code. A field's code is everything that's enclosed by the field characters ({ }) including the leading space and trailing space characters. You can access a field's code without changing the view from field results. Read/write.


This example displays the field code for each field in the active document.

Dim fieldLoop As Field

For Each fieldLoop In ActiveDocument.Fields
    MsgBox Chr(34) & fieldLoop.Code.Text & Chr(34)
Next fieldLoop

This example changes the field code for the first field in the active document to CREATEDATE.

Dim rngTemp As Range

Set rngTemp = ActiveDocument.Fields(1).Code
rngTemp.Text = " CREATEDATE "

This example determines whether the active document includes a mail merge field named "Title."

Dim fieldLoop As Field

For Each fieldLoop In ActiveDocument.MailMerge.Fields
    If InStr(1, fieldLoop.Code.Text, "Title", 1) Then
        MsgBox "A Title merge field is in this document"
    End If
Next fieldLoop
