How to export specific page in a Word document

Dear sir / madam,

I've got a Word document which contains 100 pages, I would like to export page 10 to a new document which keep the same format / style as original document.  Is there any method to do so?  I understand I can copy and paste to a new document but I think it should have some better way to accomplish it.

Please note, I'm using Word 2007

    the quickest way would probably be to save as a new document, then delete everything before and after page 10. Copy and paste to a new document will not necessarily carry everything across, e.g. headers and footers.

    I agree with teylyn.

    The problem is that Word has no "page" object, and so you cannot export a specific page.  Pagination is a function of many variables.

    I agree with them too.  If you cut the font size in half or double it, the content will have moved to a different page.  Until it is formatted for printing, content doesn't necessarily belong to a specific page.

    I think Copy - paste into new document using the Keep Source Formatting option is quicker than deleting 80 pages...

    All the required formatting of the source document is placed in the copy.

    If you happen to copy a New Section break, the header and footer of that section will also be copied, but, as matthewspatrick mentioned, not the page numbering.

    I disagree. Copy and paste may not be the only steps. Headers and footers will require at least two more copy and paste operations.

    Compare this with

    F5 > enter 10 > click behind the last word > Ctrl-Shift-End > Delete > click before the first word > Ctrl-Shift-Home > Delete. Done. Including headers and footers, too.
