moving tabs in header and footer word vba

I have a document that has multiple sections and each section has a header and footer that is independent. I have a macro that resizes the document to A4 (upon request). This resizes the margins, location of the header and footer and the page size. However, the headers and footers have a right-aligned tab in them, and that tab does not get reset.

I need help automating the resetting of the tabs. I am not aware of a parameter within pagesetup that would move the tabs. I have tried recording a macro to do the work but that hasn't done the trick either. On a simple sample document it works fine but with my document (which has bookmarks and center tabs and field codes as well) it doesn't (even though that is where I recorded  the macros). Is there something I am missing?

You can get to the TabStops is a member of the Paragraph, ParagraphFormat and Paragraphs classes. As an example, if you want to clear ALL tabstops in a document, you could do this:

Me.Paragraphs.TabStops.ClearAll

I hope this helps you get your exact functionality.  :)

thanks for the advice. I ended up using bookmarks in each section to move between them, then set specific rules for header/footer changes for each section. That worked perfectly.
