Wrote a VBS to get comments from all the word documents present in a folder and write them into an excel sheet with separate sheets for each document. But the page number and line number seems to be not working. Tried many different ways, googled a thousand times but to no avail...frustrated now...please if someone could point out whats the problem here...
