Hi,

I am using MS Word 2003.  I have created a protected form with several pages and sections.  I have a section towards the middle of the form that contains internet links and instructions about the form.   I would prefer that this section doesn't print when the completed form is printed by the users.  I know that you can include or exclude sections and pages using the print form page range feature.  But, is there a way to exclude this section automatically (maybe using some VB code) so that my users don't have to be reminded to use the page range feature to exclude this section?

Thanks.

You could use the before print to set the range.

Public WithEvents oApp As Word.Application


Private Sub oApp_DocumentBeforePrint(ByVal Doc As Document, Cancel As Boolean)
'add code to set range here
End Sub
