    'CCs can be referenced in the following ways:
    ' 1. By their position (Index number) in the document.
    ' 2. By Title and item number
    ' 3. By Tag ane item number
    ' 4. By a unique ID defined when the CC is created.
    MsgBox ActiveDocument.ContentControls(1).Range.Text
    'Since Title and Tag are not unique you need to use Item as well.
    MsgBox ActiveDocument.SelectContentControlsByTitle("Test").Item(1).Range.Text
    MsgBox ActiveDocument.SelectContentControlsByTag("Test").Item(1).Range.Text
    'Select the CC and get its ID
    Debug.Print Selection.Range.ContentControls(1).ID
    'Reference by ID.
    MsgBox ActiveDocument.ContentControls("420146660").Range.Text
    End Sub
