Default VBA Word

Hi All,

Right so we get data from our sql box from there we format the data coming out using a template file? This works in all cases ie: Bold, Center, Line breaks page breaks blah blah...

We have a problem were the first loop works and the second loop leaves the LI and doesnt add the bullet points...

Can you help???

So the data looks something like this?
<li>This is 1</li>
<li>This is 2</li>
<li>This is 3</li>
Normal sentence
<ul><li>This is 1</li></ul>
<ul><li>This is 2</li></ul>
<ul><li>This is 3</li></ul>

Dim StartWord As String, EndWord As String, StartItem As String, EndItem As String

' Set Markup tags to search for, i.e. <ul></ul>, <li></li>
StartList = "?ul^0062"
EndList = "?^0047ul?"

StartItem = "?li^0062"
EndItem = "?^0047li?"

' Clear the existing Find criteria from the Selection

' Set the Find criteria
With Selection.Find
.Text = StartList & "*" & EndList
.Forward = True
.Wrap = wdFindContinue
.MatchWildcards = True
End With

' Loop through results of find, modifying the formatting
While Selection.Find.Execute
Selection.Text = Replace(Replace(Selection.Text, "<ul>", ""), "</ul>", "")
Selection.Range.ListFormat.ApplyBulletDefault (wdWord9ListBehavior)

Dim r As Range
Dim orig As Range
Set r = Selection.Range
Set orig = Selection.Range
' Set the Find criteria for the List Items
With r.Find
.Text = StartItem & "*" & EndItem
.Forward = True
.Wrap = wdFindContinue
.MatchWildcards = True
' Loop through results of find, modifying the formatting
End With
While r.Find.Execute And r.InRange(orig)
Selection.TypeText Replace(Replace(r, "<li>", ""), "</li>", "")

Selection.Range.ListFormat.ApplyBulletDefault (wdWord9ListBehavior)
