Is there a quick way to find specific types in a WordDocument object? In my case, I'm hoping to quickly find all form field items (WTextFormField) which may be nested in various sections of the document. This would be similar to the quick navigation for bookmarks. I'm trying to avoid some kind of laborious searching by inspecting the class/object hierarchies which maybe possible in a document.

This helps me to understand a simpler and cleaner way to find the formfields. Does this approach expose formfields which maybe nested in things like a table? Or do I have to inspect down the hierarchy of elements in the section by continuing to nest inner loops?

Ok, I see that the FormFields collection on a Section.Body contains all form fields including any that maybe in table cells. This helps alot.

Thank you
