Printing Styles in a Macro

You probably already know that you can print a list of the styles defined in a document by using the controls in the Print dialog box. What if you want to do the same task from within a macro, however? In that case you would use the PrintOut method as follows:

ActiveDocument.PrintOut Item:=wdPrintStyles

When you run the line, Word prints the exact same thing that would appear if you choose to print Styles in the Print What drop-down list of the Print dialog box.

Instead of sending this list to a printer, is there a way to send it to a Word document?
