This example tests to see if the list type is a numbered list, specifically pbListTypeArabic. If the ListType property is set to pbListTypeArabic the ListNumberSeparator property is set to pbListSeparatorParenthesis. Otherwise, the SetListType method is called and passed pbListTypeArabic as the pbListType parameter and then the ListNumberSeparator property can be set.

Dim objParaForm As ParagraphFormat 
 
Set objParaForm = ActiveDocument.Pages(1).Shapes(1) _ 
.TextFrame.TextRange.ParagraphFormat 
 
With objParaForm 
 If .ListType = pbListTypeArabic Then 
 .ListNumberSeparator = pbListSeparatorParenthesis 
 Else 
 .SetListType pbListTypeArabic 
 .ListNumberSeparator = pbListSeparatorParenthesis 
 End If 
End With
