List Object (Word)

Represents a single list format that's been applied to specified paragraphs in a document. The List object is a member of the Lists collection.

Use Lists(Index), where Index is the index number, to return a single List object. The following example returns the number of items in list one in the active document.

mycount = ActiveDocument.Lists(1).CountNumberedItems

To return all the paragraphs that have list formatting, use the ListParagraphs property. To return them as a range, use the Range property.

To apply a different list format to an existing list, use the ApplyListTemplate method with the List object. To add a new list to a document, use the ApplyListTemplate method with the ListFormat object for a specified range.

Use the CanContinuePreviousList method to determine whether you can continue the list formatting from a list that was previously applied to the document.

Use the CountNumberedItems method to return the number of items in a numbered or bulleted list, including LISTNUM fields.

To determine whether a list contains more than one list template, use the SingleListTemplate property.

You can manipulate the individual List objects within a document, but for more precise control you should work with the ListFormat object.

Note Note

Picture-bulleted lists are not included in the Lists collection and cannot be manipulated using the List object.
