    Question Visual Basic Issue

    I created a macro in order for any word being "Apple" to get switched with Tomato, Banana, Carrot or Melon. Yet the only words that are getting switched for, are the first two words which are Banana and Carrot. Why is this?
    Sub ECHO()

    With Selection.Find
    Dim ltr As Variant

    ltr = Array("Banana", "Carrot", "Melon", "Tomato")

    x = 1
    .Text = "Apple"
    If x = 1 Then
    .Replacement.Text = ltr(Rnd)
    End If
    .Forward = True
    .Wrap = wdFindContinue
    .Format = True
    .MatchCase = False
    .MatchWholeWord = False
    .MatchWildcards = False
    .MatchSoundsLike = False
    .MatchAllWordForms = False
    End With
    Selection.Find.Execute replace:=wdReplaceAll

    End Sub

    'Im trying to build a macro that would help me at work. There is a lot of repetative stuff. I want to be able to run a macro that will open de document, edit the document with random stuff and print it on a specific time. I figure I start by randomizing some stuff that needs to be edited. If you guys believe this would be easier doing something else rather than VB let me know. I know little but I'm a quick learner. Thanks
