The following code works to delete words in different areas of outlook, but when I highlight a field inside a contact and run the code, it deletes the words from the Note field, not field I identified. So is there a way to add to it so that it deletes the field I highlight....or even better, it runs on one or more contacts I select, and it deletes the words or dates from the field that is added to this?Sub DeleteDate()

Dim Ins As outlook.Inspector
Dim Document As Word.Document
Dim Word As Word.Application
Dim Selection As Word.Selection
Set Ins = Application.ActiveInspector
Set Document = Ins.WordEditor
Set Word = Document.Application
Set Selection = Word.Selection
Selection.Delete Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=1

End Sub
I don't think the fields support word code, only the notes field (because it uses the rich editor. If you need to replace a value, you can do it using outlook code that doesn't use word objects.
Probably not. i'm still catching up on work (i hate going on business trips or vacation because my workload doubles when i return :()
As usual, just need the full code as I don't have the way to draft it.
