Default Code to convert numbers to superscript


I have a document that is laid out like a Bible... it has a number in front of sentences. I want those numbers to be superscripted and possibly changed in color (red or blue or green). Is this possible with WORD VBA?

You don't need VBA for this; all you need is a wildcard Find/Replace, where:
Find = [0-9]{1,}
Replace = ^&
and you set the replacement font attributes to your preferred colour (possibly even bolded to make them stand out more) and superscripted. You could, of course, record the Find/Replace as a macro.

Awesome! I haven't used wildcards before in Find & Replace. Thank you!!
