BuildingBlockType Object (Word)
Represents a type of building block. Each BuildingBlockType object is a member of the BuildingBlockTypes collection.
Microsoft Word uses types and categories to organize building blocks. Each building block type is represented by a WdBuildingBlockTypes constant. Use the Categories property to access categories for a specific building block type. The following example prints the type and category names of all the building blocks in the first template to the Immediate Window. (This example assumes that the Immediate Window is visible.)
Dim objTemplate As Template Dim objBBT As BuildingBlockType Dim objCat As Category Dim intCount As Integer Dim intCountCat As Integer Set objTemplate = Templates(1) For intCount = 1 To objTemplate.BuildingBlockTypes.Count Set objBBT = objTemplate.BuildingBlockTypes(intCount) If objBBT.Categories.Count > 0 Then Debug.Print objBBT.Name For intCountCat = 1 To objBBT.Categories.Count Set objCat = objBBT.Categories(intCountCat) Debug.Print vbTab & objCat.Name Next End If Next
