Essential Studio, VS 2005 & Word 2002

If I use the following piece of code :

paragraph.appendtext("Demo" & vbtab & "AfterTab")

My word document does appear to contain the appropriate text (inc Tab symbol), however "AfterTab" is not lined up appropriately, and there does not appear to be any tab stops on the Ruler. If I manually (in Word) add a tab stop in the ruler - then everything looks OK.
I have tried many different values for the tabwidth, all with no luck.

What am I missing?

Hi Rob,

Thanks a lot for your code snippet.

I was not able to reproduce the issue. The tab stops appear on the Ruler. I have created a sample using the above code snippet.

Herewith I have attached the sample for your reference:

Herewith I have attached the generated word document:

Please take a look into this and let me know if you have any other queries.

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.
