SYMPTOMS
When you run a Visual Basic for Applications macro that uses the ApplyListTemplate method, the following error message may appear:
This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down.

If the problem persists, contact the program vendor.
When you click Details, the following message is displayed:
WINWORD caused an invalid page fault in module MSO9.DLL at 015f:308e0522.
NOTE: The actual memory address may vary.
CAUSE
Your macro may contain command lines where the ApplyListTemplate method is encountered after a command line that uses any of the ListLevels properties or methods.
WORKAROUND
Microsoft provides programming examples for illustration only, without warranty either expressed or implied. This includes, but is not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. This article assumes that you are familiar with the programming language that is being demonstrated and with the tools that are used to create and to debug procedures. Microsoft support engineers can help explain the functionality of a particular procedure, but they will not modify these examples to provide added functionality or construct procedures to meet your specific requirements. To work around this problem, do not place an ApplyListTemplate method command line after any command line that uses any of the ListLevels properties or methods.

For example:
