Hi =?Utf-8?B?VGVjaHNhc0Rhd2c=?=,
Using Microsoft Word 2002, and I am wondering if there is a way to list
recent Word documents on the screen (like is done in EXCEL) without having to
go to the "File" menu pulldown.
I'm not familiar with this particular feature in Excel, but no: there is no way
built into Word to "print" the list of recently used documents in the Word
document. It's possible to use a macro to "walk" the entries in the File menu.
The following bit of code works for me

Sub ListMRU()
Dim MRUEnd As Long
Dim MRUcounter As Long
Dim commandText As String
Dim cb As Office.CommandBar

Set cb = CommandBars("Menu Bar").Controls("File").CommandBar
MRUEnd = cb.Controls.Count - 2

For MRUcounter = MRUEnd To MRUEnd - 8 Step -1
commandText = (cb.Controls(MRUcounter).Caption & vbCr)
If Left(commandText, 1) = "&" And IsNumeric(Mid(commandText, 2, 1)) Then
Selection.TypeText commandText
End If
Next
End Sub
