How to retrieve value from Content Controls using Word VBA

The following snippet validates the user selection using VBA. This code uses the content control created in previous example - (How to add Content Controls using VBA)

Sub Validate_ContentControl()

Dim oCC As ContentControl
Dim OCCEntry As ContentControlListEntry

Set oCC = ActiveDocument.ContentControls(1)

For i = 1 To oCC.DropdownListEntries.Count
     If oCC.DropdownListEntries.Item(i).Text = oCC.Range.Text Then
        Set OCCEntry = oCC.DropdownListEntries.Item(i)
        ' Check the text against value - can be checked directly with text
        If OCCEntry.Value = 1 Then
            MsgBox "Correct"
            MsgBox "Try Again"
            Exit Sub
        End If
     End If
Next i
