Dear Experts:

I would like to set a range in the Active Document that ...

spans from the second paragraph of the first page till the end of the penultimate paragraph of the page where the first manual page break (Strg + Enter) occurs.

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

Hi Andreas,

Should the range include or exclude the second paragraph?  Also is the penultimate paragraph on the page that is terminated by the page break, or on the following one?

Here it is as a function
Function GetRange(doc As Word.Document) As Range
    Dim rng As Range
    Dim rng1 As Range
    
    Set rng = doc.Range
    With rng.Find
        .Text = "^m"
        If .Execute Then
            Set rng1 = rng.Duplicate
        End If
    End With
    rng1.Move wdParagraph, -2
    rng1.Expand wdParagraph
    rng1.Collapse wdCollapseStart
    
    Set rng = doc.Paragraphs.First.Range
    rng.Collapse wdCollapseEnd
    rng.End = rng1.Start
    Set GetRange = rng
End Function

Open in new window

You can use it like this:
GetRange(ActiveDocument).Select

Open in new window
