On the indents and spacing tab of the paragraph format dialog box, there is a checkbox called "Don't add space between  paragraphs of the same style".  What is the VBA code to check and uncheck this box?

This sets the NoSpaceBetweenParagraphsOfSAmeStyle property of a particular Style:
Dim St as style

set st = ActiveDocument.Styles("Heading 1")

st.NoSpaceBetweenParagraphsOfSAmeStyle = False

I was able to make your code work when a style was involved but where I want to use it as shown in the code snippet below.  The Alignment property seems to work fine but the NoSpaceBetweenParagraphsOfSameStyle property is ignored even though the online VBA documentation for the Built-In Dialog wdDialogFormatParagraph box suggests that it should work.  Any suggestions?
rRange.ListFormat.ApplyListTemplate ListTemplate:=ltTemp     ' ltTemp applied to rRange with multiple paragraphs

rRange.Select

With Dialogs(wdDialogFormatParagraph)

    .NoSpaceBetweenParagraphsOfSameStyle = True   ' This line is ignored as written

    .Alignment = wdAlignParagraphLeft             ' This line is executed properly

    .Execute

End With

The property is available on the dialogue and in case it is relevant.

In the user interface it only works if you are formatting the paragraph of a style. It is otherwise greyed out in some versions of Word.

In code you would have to explicitly apply it to the style(s) that you wanted to modify.

It took a little while to figure out what Style Name I shoulf use and when I did, I spelled it incorrectly.  I'v now got it right and the code works as expected.  thanks for your help.
