Dear Experts:
Below macro lists all outline level 1 headings in a msgbox. Can this macro be expanded to list also the paragraph style name in the msgbox such as:

Section 3: List of Tables, Heading_List
Section 4: List of Figures, Heading_List
Section 5: 1 Introduction, Heading 1
Section 6: 2 Analysis, Heading 1
........
Section 12: Bibliography, Heading_End
Section 13: Appendix, Heading_End

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas
Sub ListOutlineLevel1ParaMsgBox()

Dim oPara As Paragraph

Dim strMsg As String

Dim rTmp As range ' a temporary range

Dim lTmp As Long  ' sections count

Dim l2Tmp As Long
 

Set rTmp = ActiveDocument.range

'Create start of message

strMsg = "Outline Level 1: " & vbCr

'Iterate through all paragraphs in active document

'If style has outline level 1, append to message

For Each oPara In ActiveDocument.Paragraphs

   If oPara.OutlineLevel = wdOutlineLevel1 Then

'   strMsg = "Outline level 1: " & vbCr
 

      With oPara.range

      rTmp.End = .End ' redefine the temporary range

      lTmp = rTmp.Sections.count ' count the sections

     

      

      'Append the heading number and text to the message

      strMsg = strMsg & " section: " & CStr(lTmp)

      strMsg = strMsg & "  " & .ListFormat.ListString & "  " & .Text _

      & "  "

      

      End With

      End If

Next oPara

MsgBox strMsg, vbOKOnly, "Summary Outline Level 1"

End Sub

Hello AndreasHermle,

Keeping with what you have and making small changes ... try the following

Regards,
Chris
Sub ListOutlineLevel1ParaMsgBox()
Dim oPara As Paragraph
Dim strMsg As String
Dim rTmp As Range ' a temporary range
Dim lTmp As Long  ' sections count
Dim l2Tmp As Long
 
Set rTmp = ActiveDocument.Range
'Create start of message
strMsg = "Outline Level 1: " & vbCr
'Iterate through all paragraphs in active document
'If style has outline level 1, append to message
For Each oPara In ActiveDocument.Paragraphs
   If oPara.OutlineLevel = wdOutlineLevel1 Then
'   strMsg = "Outline level 1: " & vbCr
 
      With oPara.Range
      rTmp.End = .End ' redefine the temporary range
      lTmp = rTmp.Sections.Count ' count the sections
     
      
      'Append the heading number and text to the message
      strMsg = strMsg & " section: " & CStr(lTmp)
      strMsg = strMsg & "  " & .ListFormat.ListString & "  " & Left(.Text, Len(.Text) - 1) & _
      vbTab & oPara.Range.Font.Name & vbCrLf
      
      End With

Dear Chris,
thank you for your professional help. I slightly changed the code to "oPara.range.Style" instead of "oPara.range.Font.Name" (at the very end before "End With") . My requirment was actually to add the paragraph style name.  With your help I was able to change that myself.

Again, thank you for your professional help. Regards, Andreas
