Default Almost finished helpful code--funny

I'm kinda new to vba. This took me lots of hours to make/I'm confused. I need clarification help.

Find paragraph with specific level format (1 or 2 for example) and add space to beginning of each paragrap selection

The functions I need are already created, except I have some problems:
For my function to work throughout, I have to type something in a msgbox for my script to go forward for each manipulation.

Is there anyway to make it run smoothly, and then to have a msgbox to tell me that my script was done working its function?

Sub macccta()
Dim sResponse As String


sResponse = InputBox(Prompt:="Type no to exit,Baby", _
Title:="", Default:="")
If sResponse = "no" Then Exit Sub Else 'this is convenient because I can just type "no" to exit a nasty loop; this keeps on looping... where should it place?

If sResponse > "" Then '<--what does this single statement means, especially the '>'? I think its always making me need to input anything to make the rest of the script work

Selection.HomeKey Unit:=wdStory 'start in the beginning of doc

With Selection.Find
'we are finding heading 2
.ParagraphFormat.OutlineLevel = wdOutlineLevel2 'paragraph level search

Do While .Execute

Selection.InsertBefore " " 'add a space!

'selection is converted as body text, because if not, the script keeps on looping because I dont know what I'm missing to make it stop--- down here

Selection.ParagraphFormat.OutlineLevel = wdOutlineLevelBodyText

End With

End If
Loop While sResponse <> ""
MsgBox "done"

End Sub

This script would be very useful for those who wants to copy all the selection after and paste it into Freemind (a great mindmapping free software!), which recognizes 'spaces' as heading levels.

Thx you!!!! Plz help!

LOL!!! I'll answer my own question!
Lol, I'll answer me own question! Sorry I asked in excel a Word question...
Sub sodsaS()
With ActiveDocument.Content.Find
   .ParagraphFormat.OutlineLevel = wdOutlineLevel2 '---change numbers according to outline level
    Do While .Execute(FindText:="", Forward:=True, _
            Format:=True) = True
        With .Parent
            .StartOf Unit:=wdParagraph, Extend:=wdMove
            .InsertAfter "#" '-----is what gets inserted in the beginning!
            .Move Unit:=wdParagraph, Count:=1
        End With
End With
End Sub

Good luck people! lol And I found this solution using VBa help! so much simpler
