Determining the Number of Pages in Your Document

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated December 1, 2017)

There may be times in your macros when you need to determine the number of pages in a document. The following code will tell you the number of pages in a document:

TtlPgs = Selection.Information(wdNumberOfPagesInDocument)

After executing this code, the value of TtlPgs represents the total number of physical pages in the document.

Note:

If you would like to know how to use the macros described on this page (or on any other page on the WordTips sites), I've prepared a special page that includes helpful information. Click here to open that special page in a new browser tab.

WordTips is your source for cost-effective Microsoft Word training. (Microsoft Word is the most popular word processing software in the world.) This tip (726) applies to Microsoft Word 97, 2000, 2002, and 2003. You can find a version of this tip for the ribbon interface of Word (Word 2007 and later) here: Determining the Number of Pages in Your Document.

It has been very useful. Thanks


For people as me (not geeks), could be useful to say that, with a Document Activated, there is no need to select anything to create a "Selection"... Well, at least I haven't needed.
