Default reassemble fractured text

I've been trying to reassemble as best I can some text passages which have been broken in email transport. I'd like to run a vba code to do this , based on how many words appear in each line. So for example , if the line has just three words , it would bring up the line below until a certain number of words was present in each line.


As an example ;


-------------------------------------------------------------
"Your Privacy
and Data

We only collect
data from
you sufficient to
process and deliver


your order.
We donít use
your data for any
other purpose
than this. "


-------------------------------------------------------------
Would become :


-------------------------------------------------------------
"Your Privacy and Data

We only collect data from you sufficient to process and deliver your order. We donít use your data for any other purpose than this."



-------------------------------------------------------------


I do appreciate this would be an imperfect process with certain imponderables , but would like to get close to the original as possible.


I'd be grateful for any assistance.

Check out the Cleaning up Text Pasted from Websites, E-mails, PDFs etc. 'Sticky' thread at the top of this forum: http://www.msofficeforums.com/word/2...s-e-mails.html
You'll probably find the line word counts are inconsequential.

Hi


Ok thanks again. I ran the code from the link you sent. Very good. I think though it does a bigger job than I need really.



I suspect what I need could be centred around paragraph returns and full stops. So that at a return the text below is brought up , and ignored at full stops. Maybe other things too. I'll attach a sample file for to look at and hopefully it will be clearer.



The text in the sample becomes more and more fractured the further it goes on.



Anyway , I'm grateful for your advice. Much appreciated.




Very Best Wishes ,

For your purposes, you could add:
.Font.Bold = False
before, say:
.MatchAllWordForms = False
and change:
ActiveDocument
to:
Selection
then select only the range you want to process. Even so, you will need to ensure there is an empty paragraph wherever a paragraph break is intended. Aside from that, the macro can be run as-is.
