    Need help with Drop Down List Content Control

    Hi, I've been trying to Google my issue and have found some examples, but following the instructions do not work for me and have been confusing tbh.

    I'm using Word (Office 365) and have created a drop down list. What I need to happen is when you choose an item in the list, it produces a paragraph of text below. There's about 20 items in the list, and long paragraphs to result. I have however, already created the resulting paragraphs in my building blocks organizer. I think I just need help connecting the two. Some examples I found instruct me to use Visual Basic but I think all that coding is beyond my comprehension. I would like to understand how to do it though, in case I need to add/make changes to the list in the future.

    Any help is most appreciated

    You could record the insertion of your building blocks via the macro recorder as a separate macro for each, then call the relevant macro from a ContentControl_OnExit macro coded along the lines of:
