  • 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 specified selection is to be moved. Can be a number or either the wdForward or wdBackward constant. If Count is a positive number, the specified selection is moved forward in the document, beginning at the end position. If it's a negative number, the selection is moved backward, beginning at the start position. The default value is wdForward.

Return Value

Type: System.Int32


While any character in Cset is found, the specified selection is moved. The resulting Selection object is positioned as an insertion point after whatever Cset characters were found. This method returns the number of characters by which the specified selection was moved, as an Integer value. If no Cset characters are found, the selection isn't changed and the method returns 0 (zero).
