This example applies the Heading 1 style to each paragraph in the active document that begins with the word "Chapter."

 If para.Range.Words(1).Text = "Chapter " Then 
 para.Style = ActiveDocument.Styles(wdStyleHeading1) 
 End If 
Next para

This example opens the template attached to the active document and modifies the Heading 1 style. The template is saved, and all styles in the active document are updated.

Set tempDoc = ActiveDocument.AttachedTemplate.OpenAsDocument 
With tempDoc.Styles(wdStyleHeading1).Font 
 .Name = "Arial" 
 .Size = 16 
End With 
tempDoc.Close SaveChanges:=wdSaveChanges
