@Generoso, thank you for the macro snippet. Really appreciate it :)

I never used macro until now. I replaced .Text = "13" with .Text = "perl" and ran the modified macro on the test.doc file and I got the desired information. Cool!

But the problem I posted is only a smaller part of a larger problem. For example, in the real task, it's not just one single word (it's a list of words) and I also need to remove duplicate page numbers (e.g. if 'perl' occurs more than once in one page, it will count as just once).

But I guess the macro probably can also do that too although the coding might involve a different complexity level compared with a Perl solution. I'll probably need to dig deeper.

Anyway it's good to know the macro solution. Thank you again
