  • True indicates that the item is a Names item.
  • False indicates that the item is not a Names item.


A Names item is stored as text and its Type property returns TEXT. Use IsNames to determine if a text item is also a Names item.

The IsSummary property is set to True when setting the IsNames property; therefore, you do not have to explicitly set the summary flag.
