Hello,
             I want to know the code required to align the content (headings) of a TOC in word document through Visual Basic 6.0. I have attached two screen shots for your reference. First picture (CurrentScenario.jpg) shows the current scenario and the other picture (ExpectedScenario.jpg) show the expected scenario.

Also I have given below the existing Visual Basic 6.0 code that provides the existing alignment (current scenario) of the TOC in word document.

strAddedStyles = "Heading 1,1"

WdDoc.TablesOfContents.add(Range:=WdDoc.bookmarks.Item("\endofdoc").Range, _
                                                          UseHeadingStyles:=True, UpperHeadingLevel:=1, _
                       LowerHeadingLevel:=3, AddedStyles:=strAddedStyles, UseHyperlinks:=True)

Try this.
Dim toc As Word.TableOfContents
Dim para As Word.Paragraph
Dim rng As Word.Range
For Each toc In WdDoc.TablesOfContents
    Set rng = toc.Range
    rng.MoveEnd wdCharacter, -1
    For Each para In rng.Paragraphs
        Select Case para.Style
            Case "TOC 2", "TOC 3"
            para.LeftIndent = CentimetersToPoints(2)
        End Select
    Next para
Next toc

The VB6 code and the VBA code are virtually identical.
