Hi experts

Is there a way through VBA to turn on Sections and Formatted Page Number in the Word Status Bar - see my image attached to show you what I'm referring to.

If there is no way of doing this through VBA, can someone tell me if this is possible to roll out via group policy settings?

You forgot your attached image, but the following activate the status bar if it does not show:

Application.DisplayStatusBar = True

If your problem is that the Sections and PageNumber are grayed out and do not provide any information, then this is because the document does not yet have a second page or second section. They will light up as soon as you have more than one.

Sorry about the picture. I've now attached. The status bar is displayed. I want to customise it to show Sections and Page numbers.

OK, I get it.

Recording a macro while doing activating the options in Word 2007 does not give any result. This is usually an indication that the operation in not supported in VBA. You might try to do the same in 2010 just in case, but I would be surprised if it worked. The documentation for Word 2007 VBA clearly states that the StatusBar property that was available in 2003 is no longer supported.

I think that you are out of luck on that one.

2010 returns the same thing - nothing.

I was worried I might be out of luck. How annoying.

Any idea if this is something that can be rolled out through group policy settings?

Sorry, I am not familiar about Office group policy. I could not tell.
