Aligning Paragraphs in a Macro

Please Note: This article is written for users of the following Microsoft Word versions: 97, 2000, 2002, and 2003. If you are using a later version (Word 2007 or later), this tip may not work for you. For a version of this tip written specifically for later versions of Word, click here: Aligning Paragraphs in a Macro.

If you are writing a VBA macro, you may want to apply paragraph alignment formatting within your document. To do so, you use the Alignment property, as follows:

Selection.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = wdAlignParagraphCenter

Notice that the Alignment property is set to a preset Word value, in this case wdAlignParagraphCenter. There are a number of different values you can use in your alignment:

  • wdAlignParagraphLeft to align the paragraph to the left margin.
  • wdAlignParagraphCenter to align the paragraph to the center of the print area.
  • wdAlignParagraphRight to align the paragraph to the right margin.
  • wdAlignParagraphJustify to align full lines within the paragraph with both left and right margins.
