The Word Find project is an Excel VBA program that creates word search puzzles. Words for a puzzle are associated with a topic that the program uses to sort the data. The topics and words used in a puzzle are stored in a random access file. The file containing the words and topics is accessed and displayed by the program. New words and topics for puzzles can be added to the file by the user. A puzzle is created when the user selects individual words and places them within a fifteen by fifteen grid running in any direction. After placing the words, the empty spaces in the puzzle are randomly filled with letters before printing. The Word Find program is stored on the accompanying CD-ROM as Wordfind.xls.
