    i have a 150 page MS word file. I want to select certain sections of the file (the sections i want are 20 pages approx) and put them into separate word files. so how do i select only certain number of pages from MS word files?

    operating system: windows vista
    MS word version : 2007

    I don't think you can (well, not directly). But you can highlight the material you want to extract, copy it, then paste it into a new document.

    yea. that is the default option. but if i want to select 15 pages , and want to do it 5- 10 times for different part of the doc then it is a very frustrating thing to do. i am sure there has to be a way.

    You're welcome. I learned something as well - though I've used Word forever I've never used macros.

    If you need help just let me know. I am proficient with macros and can walk you through the steps on how to create and run. Just let me know
