Range.MoveWhile (Word)

Moves the specified range while any of the specified characters are found in the document.

While any character in Cset is found, the specified range is moved. The resulting Range object is positioned as an insertion point after whatever Cset characters were found. This method returns the number of characters by which the specified range was moved, as a Long value. If no Cset characters are found, the range isn't changed and the method returns 0 (zero).
