    Good evening,

    was trying to find a piece of VBA code online for the following problem, found pieces for some single aspects, but cannot make it work. Have excel and word 2013.

    I have a excel spreadsheets which is my master database. Every row (90 in total) lists one data set with up to 40 columns, but I will not need all informations. The first colum has a checkbox which I would like to use to chose which data set to work on to populate the word doc (working with multiple ticked would be great as well).

    In addition I have multiple word documents, where I added text form fields which should then be filled with the informations from the excel sheet (I will not need all 40 columns for every word doc).

    The code needs:

    (1) To open the correct word document

    (2) Fill in automatically the present date at a defined location in the word doc styled Jan 31st, 2018 with the correct st, nd or th.

    (3) Fill in the specified data in the text form fields

    (4) One column in my spreadsheet is a drop down menu, is there a difference if this content is transfered to the text form field?

    (5) Some of the cells in the excel may be empty, how to make sure the transfer is not hicking-up?

    (6) Save for every data set ticked a document (word and pdf) in a distinct location with some information from the data set contained in the name of the file.

    I would be so greatful, If one of you can help here, guess for you this is done in a split of a minute...

    Greetings
