Hello,

I'm new to the forums and was wondering if someone could help me with creating a macro in MS word. I've had a little experience with macros in Excel, but can't seem to figure out how to do this for Word.

Is it possible to change the formatting of a specific text?

For example,

If the text was:

AAA/BBB - CCC: "DDDDD" http://on.nyt.com/pheudio

I want to make "AAA/BBB" bold and the website link to be a hyperlink. Everything else can stay the same.

Is there a macro I could create to do this formatting for a list of texts like this? It would be a huge list, so doing it one by one individually could take a while.

Thank you very much in advance!
