Locate plain text variables <*> in word doc

P: n/a
Hi All,

I would like to be able to check whether there are any remaining plain
text variables left in a word document after it has been built based on
a template. At this stage, I roll through a recordset and replace any
plain text variables using the following code:

Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("SELECT * FROM tbl_Doc WHERE zDocID = '" &
Me.cboTask & "' or zMakeAvailable = true;")
Do Until rs.EOF
wdRange.Find.Execute FindText:=rs("zFind"),
ReplaceWith:=rs("zReplace"), Replace:=wdReplaceAll
Set db = Nothing
Set rs = Nothing

After completing this process I would like to search through the
activedocument and determine whether there are any user based variables
that were not included in the recordset. I would then add the variable
to the table and prompt the user to declare it and search through the
document again to perform the find/replace procedure. This would
therefore make the new values available the next time the document is
built. All variables in the document are in the following format

Thanks in advance for any thoughts on this problem. Anton
