I have this simple loop


                                foreach (Word.ContentControlListEntry ddle in word_cc.DropdownListEntries)
                                {
                                    item.FROM_VALUE = ddle.Text;
                                    if (ddle.Value == item.TO_VALUE)
                                    {
                                        ddle.Select();
                                        break;
                                    }
                                }

I'm looking to retrieve the original value of the control before I alter it, so I can set it back as it was if I need to.

.Text return the default value.
.Value returns the value of each possible choice
I need to know the currently selected choice.

Thanks.

You can use the Range of the control:

strOriginal = word_cc.Range.Text
