Hi, how can I read the user-information in MS Word (Name, Initials, Address) which I can enter in the options?

Thanks,
Uwe

Hi Uwe,

The information you are interested in can be partially found in the ActiveDocument.BuiltInDocumentProperties collection. As to the Address field, it is likely to be stored somewhere in the Registry.

I don't see the Address field there.
