    Vbs script replace selected text


    Need to create a vbs script via a windows shortcut that replaces the selected text within ie. Just need to know how to identify the selected text and place into a variable. I can do the rest. Any suggestions?

    Look at the instr() function in vbscript. Also review the other vbs string manipulation functions, you'll probably need them to do what you want.
