Hi All,

I am trying to find a way where I can get the section index of Range. THe Range I am specifying is actually a Page which I am getting using

 Set oRange = _
            ActiveDocument.Range _
            (Start:=ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("\page").Start, _
            End:=ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("\page").End - 1)

So essentially I am trying to get a section of a page which I am on. For your information I know how to get the total section count of a document but here I want to know which is the section where my range currently is.
Could any expert help me on this as I am not so well in VBAprogramming

This should tell you what section your cursor is in:

Sub SectionTest()
Sec = Selection.Information(wdActiveEndSectionNumber)
MsgBox ("You are currently in Section " & Sec & " of the document.")
End Sub

Open in new window

You could use:
iSecIndex = oRange.Sections(1).Index
