leading spaces doesn't work so well because with proportional fonts, the

I'm looking for a function that can parse a string in Word VBA. Specifically
I want to break a directory path into separate parts so that I can create the

function in Excel can do this.
1. Can I use an Excel function in Word VBA? (I believe I may have done this
sometime in the past but can't recall how.)
2. Does anyone know of a better function/method to parse within Word, or can
you suggest a different/better approach?
You can use the Split function - eg
