Converting Excel Data into Word Docs


New Member
Aug 5, 2010
MrExcel has a great macro for creating Word Docs from Excel data but he names the files sequentially. I'd like to name them with data from the Excel file for each row i.e. Range("A" & i) - how would I do that?

The macro (quite old now) is as follows:

Sub ControlWord()
' You must pick Microsoft Word 8.0 from Tools>References
' in the VB editor to execute Word commands.
' See VB Help topic "Controlling One Microsoft Office Application from Another"
' for more information.
' Originally published by 2/28/1999
Dim appWD As Word.Application
' Create a new instance of Word & make it visible
Set appWD = CreateObject("Word.Application.8")
appWD.Visible = True

'Find the last row with data in the database
FinalRow = Range("A9999").End(xlUp).Row
For i = 2 To FinalRow
' Copy the name to cell C4
Range("A" & i).Copy Destination:=Sheets("Template").Range("C4")
' Copy data columns, transpose and paste in C10:C13
Range("B" & i & ":E" & i).Copy
Range("C10").PasteSpecial Transpose:=True
' Copy the data for the new document to the clipboard
' Tell Word to create a new document
' Tell Word to paste the contents of the clipboard into the new document
' Save the new document with a sequential file name
appWD.ActiveDocument.SaveAs FileName:="File" & i
' Close this new word document
Next i
' Close the Word application
End Sub

Many thanks
