    Get "impossible" selected values

    Jan Hagelauer

      I am using a macro to get a full list of the selected values for all the fields in the current selection.

       

      To do this, I loop through the array returned by GetSelectedValues like this:

      set oSelectedValues = ActiveDocument.GetField("Field").GetSelectedValues()
      for j = 0 to oSelectedValues.Count - 1
           sValueList = sValueList & ", " & oSelectedValues.Item(j).Text
      next
      sCurrentSelection = "Field = " & sValueList 
      

       

      However, the resulting list does not include the values which appear in the Current Selection box but which are excluded (not possible) through the selection of other fields.

      I cannot use ActiveDocument.GetCurrentSelections to resolve this, because it only returns something like "20 of 5000" instead of the actual values if more than a few values are selected.

       

      Any suggestions on how to get those impossible values into the selection?
