    I want to search through the document to find simplefields and replace the simplefield with text that my program generates. I can find the simplefields by looping through the document.body.sections. I can remove the simple fields by using the simplefield.delete method. How can I insert text where the simplefield was located?

    I was able to find and replace the simplefields using the following code.

    For Each DocSec1 In Doc1.Body.Sections

    DocSecRange1 = DocSec1.GetRange()

    For IndexField = 0 to DocSecRange1.SimpleFields.Count -1

    Field1 = DocSecRange1.SimpleFields(IndexField)

                FieldCode = Field1.Code.Trim
                DocSecRange1.Document.Body.GetPersistentRange(Field1.Start, Field1.End).Runs.Insert("AAA", InsertLocation.Before)
