Default VBA equivalent to selecting present word

I'm just looking for a way in VBA to select the present word when the selection point is anywhere within the Word. I.e., to do the same thing as when you double-click on a Word and it selects the same.



Thank you!

It looks like the .Extend and .Expand methods of the Selection object might do what you want. This is from the help for extend:

Code:
With Selection   
  ' Collapse current selection to insertion point.   
  .Collapse   
  ' Turn extend mode on.   
  .Extend   
  ' Extend selection to word.   
  .Extend   
  ' Extend selection to sentence.   
  .Extend  
End With
Or try this:
Code:
Selection.Expand ' default unit is wdWord

Perfect! I'll try the Selection.Expand.

Thanks!
