Macro for reformatting Word

Is it possible to make a macro that will take 250-300 lines of text,
place a line break (Enter) between each line,
and then identify the line break as Heading 1, and the paragraph as Heading 2?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


pls try

Sub Macro()

    Selection.Style = ActiveDocument.Styles("Heading 2")
    For Idx = ActiveDocument.Paragraphs.Count To 1 Step -1
        Selection.HomeKey Unit:=wdLine
        Selection.MoveUp Unit:=wdLine, Count:=1
        Selection.MoveDown Unit:=wdLine, Count:=1, Extend:=wdExtend
        Selection.Style = ActiveDocument.Styles("Heading 1")
End Sub
