Retrieving a paragraph from a word document using VBA [Resolved]

The following code will allow me to insert a paragraph from a word document using VBA (keeping the original formats)

Set WordApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
WordApp.Visible = True
Set WordDoc = WordApp.Documents.Open(aFile)



However is there any quicker way (that doesn't involve opening an instance of word, and then closing it)

I don't know the reason you don't want to open the file (maybe someone is using), but you can make a clone of that file and use the clone file. This way you don't open the original file :P

As highlighted in the question, the reason why I don't want to open the file in the manner in which I described, is for speed reasons. – gordon613 May 31 at 5:00
