Hi All

I would like to find the heading numbers of the selected paragraph using VBA - thought this would be simple but I am flummoxed.

Eg.  I am using outline numbering or heading numbering and my text looks like this:

1.   Trees
1.1 Gum
1.2 Oak
1.3 Terpentine

My cursor is on Oak.  I want VBA to return "1.2"

Sub getP()
Dim pPara As Paragraph
Dim sPara As String
Dim rPara As Range

Set pPara = Selection.Paragraphs(1)
Set rPara = pPara.Range
Debug.Print rPara.ListFormat.ListString & " " & rPara.Text

End Sub
