Default Content Control Field Names/Titles Word Form

Dear Friends,

Thank you in advance. Sounds fairly easy but I have no previous experience in creating forms in word doc.



I created a long form with about 150 Q&A (fields). I used 2013 content control objects (drop down and combo box mainly) to allow selections by the user.

However, now I want to get all the fields names of 150 questions. Manually it is a big ask ( going to each control->properties->name). I am thinking, if there is a means to get all the field names (not the field data) export into excel easily.

Any help is highly appreciated.

best regards
raj

It would take about as long to write a macro for this as it would to do the job manually.

BTW, there is no need for "going to each control->properties->name" - you need only click on a content control to see its title.

Thank you Paul. I want to find the titles of each field. I found a work around with a VB code. Between VB - Quick Watch and Text-to-column on excel, i was able to do it.

Code:
Sub CountFields()
    Dim iCnt As Integer
    Dim f As Field
    iCnt = ActiveDocument.Fields.Count
    Dim CCtrl As ContentControl
    Dim alltitles As String
    For Each CCtrl In ActiveDocument.ContentControls
    
        alltitles = CCtrl.Title & ";" & alltitles
    Next
    MsgBox alltitles
End Sub
I added a quick watch on msgBox. Copied all fields-titles and uses excel

That's one way of addressing the problem - and requires much less programming effort than your request for code to both get the titles and write them to an Excel workbook.
