Split document based on page breaks

Dear Experts:

I got a huge word document with lots of page breaks (Strg + Enter) .

Is it possible to split this document based on the page breaks, i.e. ...

If a document has got 4 page breaks, this document gets split based on these page breaks and saved individually, i.e. 5 different documents, named doc1 till doc5 are created and saved.

I hope this is feasible and does not require too much coding work.

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

Regards, Andreas

Hi

pls refer to http://www.extendoffice.com/documents/word/966-word-split-document-into-multiple-documents.html

Sub SplitIntoPages() 
Dim docMultiple As Document 
Dim docSingle As Document 
Dim rngPage As Range 
Dim iCurrentPage As Integer 
Dim iPageCount As Integer 
Dim strNewFileName As String 
Application.ScreenUpdating = False 'Makes the code run faster and reduces screen _
flicker a bit. 
Set docMultiple = ActiveDocument 'Work on the active document _
(the one currently containing the Selection) 
Set rngPage = docMultiple.Range 'instantiate the range object
iCurrentPage = 1 
'get the document's page count
iPageCount = docMultiple.Content.ComputeStatistics(wdStatisticPages) 
Do Until iCurrentPage > iPageCount 
If iCurrentPage = iPageCount Then 
rngPage.End = ActiveDocument.Range.End 'last page (there won't be a next page) 
Else
'Find the beginning of the next page
'Must use the Selection object. The Range.Goto method will not work on a page
Selection.GoTo wdGoToPage, wdGoToAbsolute, iCurrentPage + 1 
'Set the end of the range to the point between the pages
rngPage.End = Selection.Start 
End If 
rngPage.Copy 'copy the page into the Windows clipboard
Set docSingle = Documents.Add 'create a new document
docSingle.Range.Paste 'paste the clipboard contents to the new document
'remove any manual page break to prevent a second blank
docSingle.Range.Find.Execute Findtext:="^m", ReplaceWith:="" 
'build a new sequentially-numbered file name based on the original multi-paged file name and path
strNewFileName = Replace(docMultiple.FullName, ".doc", "_" & Right$("000" & iCurrentPage, 4) & ".doc") 
docSingle.SaveAs strNewFileName 'save the new single-paged document
iCurrentPage = iCurrentPage + 1 'move to the next page
docSingle.Close 'close the new document
rngPage.Collapse wdCollapseEnd 'go to the next page
Loop 'go to the top of the do loop
Application.ScreenUpdating = True 'restore the screen updating 
'Destroy the objects.
Set docMultiple = Nothing 
Set docSingle = Nothing 
Set rngPage = Nothing 
End Sub
