    Simple VBA question but 'Word' related

    Hi all, I have a 199 page document that I need to 'process'. I used to be fairly handy with macros but haven't touched them for 10years + so a little rusty. The document is a PDF that has been imported to word so won't be 'set up' in a standard way.

    First job - there is a watermark on each page that I need to get rid of. It s not in 'master pages' but rather appears as a different image on each page.

    I've recorded a macro to get started and it seems that the image is called Picture <X> with x being incremented on each page .... so what I want is along the lines of:
    For x = 1 To 199 ActivePage.Shapes("Picture" & x).Select
    Selection.ShapeRange.Delete
    Application.Browser.Next
    next x

    You might not be surprised to hear that this doesn't work. The error returned is RunTime error 424: Object Required.

    Any thoughts?

    Apologies Paul. Does your helpful post cover the requirement to link?

    (I've not had any answers on either forum yet ... guessing it must be a lot harder than I though?

    If that's the only cross-post, yes.

    I, for one, answered your question at VBA Express. Perhaps you should read my other post there...
