Sandhya: Please don't try to hijack other peoples' threads. I've moved your post from the other thread to this one.

The first post (above) has nothing to do with finding highlighted text. It simply removes highlighting - but you don't even need a macro for that.

As for finding highlighted text, you can do that via a simple Find operation, where 'Highlight' is specified as a Find parameter. If you want that for a macro, simply record the action with the macro recorder.

Talking remove highlight in whole document

Hi,

Can any one help me to modify the code, this will remove the highlighted text at only one place, but i would like to remove in the whole active document.

Sub SearchAnyHighlight()
Dim hiliRng As Range
Set hiliRng = ActiveDocument.Content
With hiliRng.Find
.Highlight = True
.Execute
If hiliRng.Find.Found Then
MsgBox "You can't close Active Document"
Do While hiliRng.Find.Execute
If hiliRng.HighlightColorIndex = wdBrightGreen Then
hiliRng.HighlightColorIndex = wdNoHighlight
End If
Loop
End If
End With
End Sub

Sandhya: I have asked you before to not keep starting new threads on the same topic. Keep it up and your account will be closed.

Furthermore, the first post in this thread (to which I've merged your latest post) already shows how to remove highlighting from an entire document.

Sandhya: You did not specify the removal of only green highlights - you said:

which means all highlights.

And do you really suppose we need all of your last five posts to tell us basically the same thing? Try:
Code:
Sub Demo()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim i As Long
With ActiveDocument.Range
  With .Find
    .ClearFormatting
    .Replacement.ClearFormatting
    .Text = ""
    .Replacement.Text = ""
    .Forward = True
    .Wrap = wdFindStop
    .Format = True
    .Highlight = True
    .Execute
  End With
  Do While .Find.Found
    If .HighlightColorIndex = wdBrightGreen Then
      i = i + 1
      .HighlightColorIndex = wdNoHighlight
    End If
    .Collapse wdCollapseEnd
    .Find.Execute
  Loop
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
MsgBox i & " highlights found & removed."
End Sub
