Unable to print specific pages to Adobe Acrobat

User is doing a mailmerge in Word 2003.  
After the merge he wants to print only pages 3-4 to Adobe Acrobat.  However, Adobe is not seeing those pages.  
It can print all the pages but not the specific range.  I know why it's doing it.  When a mailmerge is generated, it is inserting a Section break between each new section.  However, the section break is a new page section instead of a continuos section.  
How can I get Adobe Acrobat to read Page 3 as page 3 instead of it seeing it as page 1.
Doing it manually is not an option as the merge can be very long.

If what you need is for page numbers to not restart at one on each section then this should take care of it.
Sub PageNumberContinue()

    Dim aSection As Section
    
    For Each aSection In ActiveDocument.Sections

        aSection.Footers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).PageNumbers.RestartNumberingAtSection = False

    Next aSection

End Sub

Open in new window
