I used to have some very useful WordBasic macros that I am now in the process of converting to VBA. Most of the code converts to VBA well but I am stumped with how to get the setting for including the number of the previous heading level for a nominated built-in heading style.
For example, if the Heading1 style uses Arabic numbering (e.g. 1, 2, 3), I want to be able to determine whether the Heading2 style is set include the number of the Heading1 style in its numbering (e.g. 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3).
This was done with the Include parameter in Wordbasic. The converted (to VBA) code looks like thisL
'Get include value from H2
Dim FHN As Object: Set FHN = WordBasic.DialogRecord.FormatHeadingNumber(False)
FHN.Level = 2
H2IncludePreviousNumber = FHN.include
'Set include value for H2
Interestingly, while I cannot retrieve the include value I can set it using the above method.
I am quite happy to relinquish the old Wordbasic code but I cannot for the life of me find out how to do what I want with VBA.
All suggestions gratefully accepted.
