  • Cset
    Type: System.Object%
    Required Object. One or more characters. This argument is case-sensitive.
  • Count
    Type: System.Object%
    Optional Object. The maximum number of characters by which the range or selection is to be moved. Can be a number or either the wdForward or wdBackward constant. If Count is a positive number, the selection is moved forward in the document. If it's a negative number, the selection is moved backward. The default value is wdForward.

Return Value

Type: System.Int32


While any character in Cset is found, the end position of the specified selection is moved. This method returns the number of characters that the end position of the selection moved as an Integer value. If no Cset characters are found, the selection isn't changed and the method returns 0 (zero). If the end position is moved backward to a point that precedes the original start position, the start position is set to the new end position.
