    I use microsoft word quite a bit with large documents, my problem is that quite often I will just tell my document to print without telling it exactly what pages to print. Is there some way I can tell micorsoft word to remember what page I printed last. Then from now on it will only print that page until I tell it to print something different.


    thanx

    File - Print - Pages -

    That allows you to print the pages you want, and use of 11 - as an example prints from page 11 onwards. 2-6 prints p2 through to p6.

    Thats a Windows setting though and is not remembered by Word.

    You need to specify each time.

    I guess you could do a Print Current one time while recording as a macro. Then you could assign it to a button sat next to your regular Print button on the Standard toolbar. It would come out something like -

    Sub PrintCurrent()
    Application.PrintOut FileName:="", _
    Range:=wdPrintCurrentPage, _
    Item:= wdPrintDocumentContent, Copies:=1, _
    Pages:="", PageType:=wdPrintAllPages, _
    Collate:=True, Background:=False, _
    PrintToFile:=False, PrintZoomColumn:=0, _
    PrintZoomRow:=0, _
    PrintZoomPaperWidth:=0, PrintZoomPaperHeight:=0
    End Sub

    , although you don't actually need ½ of that junk.


    HTH,
