How to insert a new List number in a existing List in Word RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Word document that I am using bookmarks to basically merge with data from my 2007 Access DB. In the code behind the button to fill the document I have the following (partial code)

    Dim yada as yada ' all the dim stuff is up top in the code

       Set WordObj = CreateObject("Word.Application")
       Set WordDoc = WordObj.Documents.Open _
           ("C:\Users\ktaylor\Documents\LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT.dotx")
       WordObj.Visible = True

    Now through the code I "goto" certain bookmarks and insert text. For example:

       ' Go to the bookmark named "TitleWholeName"
       Set WordRange = WordDoc.Goto(What:=wdGoToBookmark, Name:="TitleWholeName")
       WordRange.InsertAfter strName

    Now I have not defined any list at all. In the document template there are 7 numbered paragraphs and between each number, there may be more than one paragraph. For example:

    III (this is centered in the document - and part of a numbered list)

    Blah blah, yada blah yada yada.

    IV (this too is centered in the document)

    More important text is here, yada, something else.

    (this is where I would like to insert a new paragraph number, followed by another paragraph of text. I have a Bookmark name NewPara already here)

    V (this too is centered and a list number item)

    A paragraph may or may not be inserted above this one. Yada, blah, yada yada blah.

    So, I would like to know how to insert a line number at the bookmark NewPara

    Thanks for any help in advance!

  • I am talking about using VBA's (something like: Selection.Range.ListFormat.ApplyNumberDefault) numbered lists methods. 

    I am trying to understand how to use VBA to insert a new line number that automatically joins the existing numbered list. 

    I have actually figured out how to add bulleted lists as sub paragraphs to my document, but I really need to have the ability to add a paragraph and insert the paragraph number like IV or VII depending where the paragraph is inserted.
