Microsoft Office Word uses types and categories to organize building blocks. Each building block type is represented by a WdBuildingBlockTypes constant. Each category is a unique string that a user defines. Word comes with two categories already defined: "General" and "Custom"; you can create additional categories as you need.

Use the Type property to access the building block type associated with a specific category. Use the BuildingBlocks property to access the collection of building blocks for a category.

Use the Item(Object%) method of the Categories collection to access an exising category; to create a new category, use the Add(String, WdBuildingBlockTypes, String, Range, Object%, WdDocPartInsertOptions) method of the BuildingBlockEntries collection. Set the value of the Category parameter.

For more information about building blocks, see Working with Building Blocks.
