Content control in Word

Hi,
I have a couple of ContentControls in a Word document that I wish to reset to the first item in the list when the user clicks a button.
I have the button and some code to clear the contents of table cells, and I have tried to get the first contentcontrol (a drop list) to reset to the first list item, (line 15 in the code) but I'm struggling.
As always any help is much appreciated.
Private Sub btnEmal_Click()
On Error GoTo ErrHandler
    Dim cl1 As Cell
    Dim cl2 As Cell
    Dim tbl As Table
    Dim rng As Range
    
    Set tbl = ActiveDocument.Tables(1)
    Set cl1 = tbl.Cell(2, 2)
    Set cl2 = tbl.Cell(11, 5)
    Set rng = cl1.Range.Duplicate
    rng.End = cl2.Range.End
    rng.Delete
    
ActiveDocument.Range , ContentControls("Shift").Range = 1
Exit Sub
ErrHandler:
    MsgBox Err.Description
End Sub

This code assumes that the target content control is the first in the document with the title "shift".
Dim cc As ContentControl

Set cc = ActiveDocument.SelectContentControlsByTitle("Shift")(1)
cc.DropdownListEntries.Item(2).Select

Open in new window

Note that item 1 is the placeholder text and item 2 is the first in the list of added entries.
