Add content control with link to document property RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello

    I searched carefully in the web but cannot end up with an answer.

    I need to add a ContentControl with VBA but the problem is how to link it to a built-in document property ("Title" in my case).

    In other words: how to do with VBA this steps: Insert > Quick parts > Document property > Title ??

  • Hi Liederman,

    The document property is a plain text content control and bind to the title property story in the document. Here is a sample for your reference:

    Sub AddTitleQuickPart()
    Dim objCC As ContentControl
    Dim objMap As XMLMapping
    Dim blnMap As Boolean
    ActiveDocument.BuiltInDocumentProperties("Title").Value = "This is a title"
    Set objCC = ActiveDocument.ContentControls.Add(wdContentControlText)
    objCC.Title = "Title"
    Set objMap = objCC.XMLMapping
    blnMap = objMap.SetMapping(XPath:="/ns1:coreProperties[1]/ns0:title[1]")
    If blnMap = False Then
     MsgBox "Unable to map the content control."
    End If
    End Sub

    Here are some helpful links for your reference:
