Printing certain pages in all sections



  • 1. how many words that you type are ready
    You have a report and you have to type 1000 between and 1500 words
  • 2. I keep getting an winword.exe error
    When I open up emails or even word, I get the error when I close down or try and send the email.
  • 3. Making Cover Page Different Color that Document Body
    I want to make the first page black and keep the rest of it white. Is that possible? I change the front to black and it all goes black. And then I change the body to white and it all goes white. Can I make the two different on Word 2007?
  • 4. My Office word 2007 does not close the first time?
    My Office Word 2007 does not close the first time. It comes up file not found and restarts it's quite annoying. It will close the second time.
  • 5. Making tables accessible in MS Word Forms
    Have a challenge i cant seem to figure out. I am making a form that i want to lock down, only allowing the user to enter text into the form fields. However, part of the document consists of a table where they will enter info into a cell then move on to another cell. The problem is, depending on how much entries they have they might need to add another row or two to the table. How can i allow this. I know without a form lockdown all they would have to do is push tab and a new row would appear. However this is not happening with a locked form. How can i format the table to allow this??

Printing certain pages in all sections

Postby THVrZWVl » Wed, 14 Mar 2007 15:39:10 GMT

Is there any possible way to print a range of pages in all sections? I have a 
number of mail merge documents that are merged to a new document overnight 
(due to their size, as it takes anywhere up to 40 mins with several thousand 
records) I need to print only certain pages within each section. 

Eg, the original merge document had 3 pages and 500 records, after it is 
merged to a new document I end up with a 1500 page document with each section 
containing 3 pages. What we need to do is print page 1 and 2 of each section 
to one printer (as it is duplex) and send page 3 to another printer as the 
duplex and simplex pages use different paper. Is this possible?

We can do this before merging and selecting 'Merge to Printer', but the 
merge process takes far too long on some of our documents, but we seem to 
lose this functionality after mering into one document. Cheers.

Hi Lukeee,

See:  http://www.**--****.com/ 
Although specific to Word 2003 & 2003, the principle applies to earlier versions as well.

In theory at least, the following macro should print page 1 & 2 of each 
section on one printer and page 3 on another (change Printer 1 and Printer 2 
for the actual printers.)

Whether this would be any quicker I hesitate to guess - try it with a few 

Sub PrintXSections()
Dim sCurrentPrinter As String
Dim x as Long, lSecs As Long
Dim sPages As String
lSecs = ActiveDocument.Sections.Count

sCurrentPrinter = ActivePrinter
For x = 1 To lSecs
ActivePrinter = "Printer 1"
ActiveDocument.PrintOut Range:=wdPrintRangeOfPages, _
Pages:="p1s" & x & ",p2s" & x
ActivePrinter = "Printer 2"
ActiveDocument.PrintOut Range:=wdPrintRangeOfPages, _
Pages:="p3s" & x
Next x
ActivePrinter = sCurrentPrinter
End Sub

Thanks Graham,

I applied that code with a few minor changes and also did the same thing in 
C# using the interop libraries, unfortunately both had the same result - 
although it did print what I needed, I ended up with hundreds of jobs being 

It's just a shame that the p*s* syntax in the print dialog doesn't support 
this, but thanks for your help.

I cannot see any way around the problem that would eliminate the hundreds of 
print jobs. It might be a little quicker to spool pages 1&2 first and then 
pages 3, but you are still going to have lots of print jobs.
