I need to convert this vba code to vb.net. After the first line of the paragraph it is suppose to indent the following lines 5 clicks. It is working except that the entire paragraph is getting moved those 5 clicks. This code works inside a macro in MS Word......

Please help..........

With oDoc.Content.Application.Selection.ParagraphFormat
                .LeftIndent = oDoc.Content.Application.InchesToPoints(0.5)
                .RightIndent = oDoc.Content.Application.InchesToPoints(0)
                .SpaceBefore = 0
                .SpaceBeforeAuto = False
                .SpaceAfter = 0
                .SpaceAfterAuto = False
                .LineSpacingRule = oDoc.Content.Application.Selection.ParagraphFormat.LineSpacingRule.wdLineSpaceDouble
                .Alignment = CInt(Word.WdParagraphAlignment.wdAlignParagraphLeft)
                .WidowControl = True
                .KeepWithNext = False
                .KeepTogether = False
                .PageBreakBefore = False
                .NoLineNumber = False
                .Hyphenation = True
                .FirstLineIndent = oDoc.Content.Application.InchesToPoints(0.05)
                .OutlineLevel = 10 'oDoc.Content.Application.Selection.ParagraphFormat.OutlineLevel = 10 'CInt(Word.WdOutlineLevel.wdOutlineLevelBodyText = 0)
                .CharacterUnitLeftIndent = 0
                .CharacterUnitRightIndent = 0
                .CharacterUnitFirstLineIndent = 0

I read it that you need a hanging indent:

With oDoc.Content.Application.Selection.ParagraphFormat
        .LeftIndent = InchesToPoints(0.5)
        .FirstLineIndent = InchesToPoints(-0.5)
End With

This gives you a hanging indent of .5 inches.

You know what I find to be most helpful with learning automation is to record actions using the Macro recorder in Word, and going from there.  I usually find that it records a lot more stuff than I need, but at least it is a place to start.  I think it would be difficult to find just the right web site for that all-encompassing source.  I have just culled my knowledge from many years of struggling and practicing and searching and struggling and succeeding and failing and struggling...Ya know!

I still don't find it very easy to automate Office after all these years!
