Using MS Word Doc Labview over writes bookmark. How do you write to MS Bookmark without replacing bookmark?

Highlighted

I have a write text.vi that finds bookmarks in a MS Word Doc and adds test results to word doc.  It is replacing the bookmark with text.  Any suggestions?

 

Thanks,  Greg

Can you post your VI so we can see how you are doing it now?

The Reset Pin Feeds Write Text Vi.  This principle was developed by previous employees who no longer work here. It is based on 6 or more programs.  I added the bookmark to the ATP doc.  I understand it might be an issue with MS Word Doc not the Vis.

Aside from the rest of the application, at any point are you using the Automation Open VI?

 

I could make your subVI work by itself by placing an Automation Open and also wiring the GoTo reference to the last property node in your VI.

I realized I may have misread the forum post.  Are you having trouble writing to the bookmark or is the VI overwriting the bookmark so that it's unusable?

 The problem turned out to be a buried "Copy File" Command. Earlier in the code, it copied the Word File from location x to Pre_ATP.doc.  The Source file was wrong so the bookmark was never there to begin with. What I observed was after the copy command.  Thus the book mark looked like it was over written when it was not even there.  I keep adding the bookmark to the PRE_ATP.doc which was copied over by the copy comannd.

 

Thanks
