I just got passed a document with a Microsoft Word document with a zillion comments in it. I could have deleted all the comments by hand, but it would have taken forever and there would be a good chance I would miss one. So I used Visual Basic for Applications to do it. Here are the steps:
- In MS Word, type Alt-F11 to bring up the Macro window
- At the bottom of the Macro window, there is a pane labelled "Immediate". Commands entered here are run immediately.
- On a single line in the immediate pane, type
for z = ActiveDocument.Comments.Count to 1 step -1: ActiveDocument.Comments(z).Delete : next
- Hit Enter. All of the comments in the document will be deleted.
