I have a VBA form for word 2016. In this 'Main Document' I can select other word documents to insert at the cursor point into my document. The docs include mapped content controls, and I find that when they are inserted in this fashion the content controls are empty. When I copy and paste the contents of the files, they transfer perfectly (and the mapped content in the Main Document are then updated to include the transferred information).
Is there a solution to this issue, or another way round?
Following is the code used to insert the files.
If Me.lstSelectedFiles.ListCount > 0 Then 'loop through selected files For i = 0 To Me.lstSelectedFiles.ListCount - 1 Selection.InsertFile FileName:=Me.lblFilePath.Caption & "\" & Me.lstSelectedFiles.List(i), Range:="", _ ConfirmConversions:=False, Link:=False, Attachment:=False Next Selection.TypeBackspace 'remove last page break Else MsgBox "You must add at least one file to the selected files list", vbCritical End If Unload Me
