How to export the data from excel to word as text use VBA

Questions:

I have the following code found from this web site. It works almost, except that it export the date into a form in Word document. Instead, I would like to have paragraphs, keeping the original font, size and color in excel. Could anyone help? Very much appreciated!

Sub Export_Excel_To_Word()

Dim wdApp As Object
Dim wd As Object

On Error Resume Next
Set wdApp = GetObject(, "Word.Application")
If Err.Number <> 0 Then
    Set wdApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
End If
On Error GoTo 0

Set wd = wdApp.Documents.Add

wdApp.Visible = True



Sheets("sheet1").Activate
Set Rng = ThisWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range("A2:F21")

Rng.Copy

   With wd.Range
        .Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseStart                  'Slutet av dokumentet
        .InsertParagraphAfter                                 'Lagg till rad
        .Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseStart                  'Slutet av dokumentet
        .PasteSpecial xlPasteFormats, False, False            'Paste with format

    End With

End Sub
How to&Answers:

It’s pretty simple, you’re using the pasteSpecial method with misplaced parameters. That induced me in error in the beginning. Try this to paste pure unformatted text:

.PasteSpecial DataType:=2 ' wdPasteDataType.wdPasteText

Or to keep the formats of fonts,

.PasteSpecial DataType:=1 ' wdPasteDataType.wdPasteRtf

To replace the tabs with single space after the paste:

With wd.Range
    .Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseStart
    .InsertParagraphAfter
    .Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseStart
    .PasteSpecial DataType:=2
    With .Find
        .ClearFormatting
        .Text = vbTab
        .Replacement.ClearFormatting
        .Replacement.Text = " "
        .Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll, Forward:=True, Wrap:=wdFindContinue
    End With
End With

Answer:

The easiest alternative that I can think of is to paste the Excel Range and convert the table to text:

ThisWorkbook.Sheets("sheet1").Range("A2:F21").Copy

wdApp.Selection.Paste

wdApp.DefaultTableSeparator = " "

wdApp.Selection.Previous(15).Rows.ConvertToText
