Dear all,

I wish to design a macro for setting the header of the document with the code below but the result ended up with all 3 lines on the left. Can any help to resolve the problem?

Line 1 on the Right
Line 2 on the Left
Line 3 on the Left

Thanks very much

   

With ActiveDocument.sections(1).Headers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).Range
    
        .Text = "Line 1 on the Right" & Chr(10)
        .Paragraphs.Alignment = wdAlignParagraphRight
    
        .InsertAfter "Line 2 on the Left" & Chr(10)
        .Paragraphs.Alignment = wdAlignParagraphLeft
    
        .InsertAfter "Line 2 on the Left"
        .Paragraphs.Alignment = wdAlignParagraphLeft
    
    
    End With

Word can be very finicky with the methods used for populating text so you are not alone, (I struggle too).

Thank you for the prompt closure and grade.
