Set myParas = ActiveDocument.Paragraphs ActiveDocument.Paragraphs.Style = wdStyleNormal For x = 1 To myParas.Count If x Mod 3 = 1 Then myParas(x).OutlineLevel = wdOutlineLevel1 ElseIf x Mod 3 = 2 Then myParas(x).OutlineLevel = wdOutlineLevel2 Else myParas(x).OutlineLevel = wdOutlineLevel3 End If Next x ActiveDocument.ActiveWindow.View.Type = wdOutlineView
