Pasquale's problem had to do with turning the "smart quotes" function of Word off. A word to the wise, although some of Word's auto-correct functions are useful, when doing these text macros, they will more often than not mess up what you were trying to do. I think there's a way to turn them off automatically in running the Macro (i.e. a few lines that could be added to the beginning of the macro), but it would take me more time to figure out how to do that than it's worth. I'm sure someone smarter than I could provide a quicker answer.
