I have problems with compare fields between excel and word. Normally the same strings but not in the same format.
string variable1 (in excel column): Title_of_book
string variable2 (in word paragraph): <<Title_of_book_>>
i would like to have compare of that as true because variable1 IS IN variable2. How to do that?
string variable1 (in excel column): Date_of_creation_document_2012
string variablw2 (in word column): «Date_of_creation_document_20»
here 12 was cutted somehow in Word but almost whole text is same and this is for sure that field associated so also should be marked as true in compare.
I tried by but its not working as assumed:
If InStr(variable1, variablw2) > 0 Then
generally i have no idea how to do such comparmission user of that file using excel as datasource for Word series corespondention and fields inside word associated with excel strings and in diffrent format lets say in excel are spaces and in word they are changed to _ or in excel ( ) in string are also changed to _ in word also in word we got << >> chars besides sometimes string in word is shorter. Thats the problem i got thats why mentioned examples i find out maybe to just compare some part of string if exist because comparing all that diffrences are not possible. What you think? I can of course share with all code i got.

any feedback on that? This is my code so far but i still have no idea how to program that:
the most important line:
