Hi,
I am using C# to automatically populate text in a Word Document. I need a certain paragraph to have bullet points but the next paragraph revert to normal text. I can insert the bullet points but cannot remove them. I am using the following code:


 Object oTrue = true;
 Object oFalse = false;
 Object oTemplatePath = @"C:\SampleTemplate.dotx";
Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Application oWord = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Application();
Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Document oDoc = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Document();
Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Paragraph oPara1;

oWord.Visible = true;
oDoc = oWord.Documents.Add(ref oTemplatePath, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing);
oPara1 = oDoc.Content.Paragraphs.Add(ref oMissing);

oPara1.Range.ParagraphFormat.LeftIndent = -1;
oPara1.Range.ListFormat.ApplyBulletDefault(ref oMissing);
oPara1.Range.Text = "Sample Text that has a preceding bullet point";

oPara1.Range.InsertParagraphAfter();

//Here I need to remove the bullet point on the next paragraph


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
David

Hi
You can use RemoveNumbers method:

oPara1.Range.ListFormat.RemoveNumbers(ref oNumberType);

oNumberType is wdNumberParagraph

Try the following:
oPara1.Range.InsertParagraphAfter();

//Here I need to remove the bullet point on the next paragraph

oPara1.Range.ListFormat.RemoveNumbers();
