The style list covers Word 2010 and earlier versions

The style list contains a total of 267 built-in styles, representing the built-in styles in Word 2010. Thanks to Tony Jollans who provided information that helped me find missing style names in German and French.

How to get a full list of built-in style names if you are using Word 2013 or Word 2016

New built-in styles added in Word 2013 and Word 2016 are not included in the current version of the PDF file you can download below.

However, you will find all built-in style names in English, covering Word 2003, Word 2007, Word 2010, Word 2013 and Word 2016 in the Word document you can download from the article Macro – Create List of Local Built-in Style Names. If you are not using an English version of Word, the document you can download via the link above lets you generate a list of all the built-in style names in your language version - you only need to click a button to do so.

Where to find more information

For further information about the problems that may occur if you create templates and/or macros to be used on PCs with different language versions of Microsoft Word installed, read the article Macro – Create List of Local Built-in Style Names.

Note that the macros available in the above mentioned article lets you create a list of built-in style names in any available language of Microsoft Word, provided you have access to a PC with that language version of Microsoft Word installed.

About the PDF document ready for download
