    Re: Switch off Pagination (WORD 97/2000)

    You are trying to do incompatible things.

    A TOC is relatively useless without page numbers. Word can't work out the page numbers if it can't paginate the document. Therefore the programmers decided that when you update the TOC a repagination will occur to allow the TOC to build correctly.

    Similarly, you can't view the document in PageLayout or PrintLayout view without working out what would be on the page. Again a repagination is necessary to allow this view to happen at all.

    If you really want to inhibit repagination, work in Normal view.

    Robie,

    Hope this doesn't seem like 'piling on' after Andrew's answer, but another thing you may want to consider: if you are building a template that takes forever to paginate, you may want to consider alternative designs for the template. Perhaps autotexts could be used to reduce some of the content that appears in the template document itself?

    Switch off Pagination (WORD 97/2000)

    I would like word to stop repaginating my document (as it takes a looooooooooong time) and then repaginate when I would want it. Oh! BTW I am writing a template.

    I do the following but it still repaginates when I update the TOC in the background.

    ActiveDocument.ActiveWindow.View.Type = wdNormalView
    Application.Options.Pagination = False

    ' Generate Table of Contents
    ActiveDocument.TablesOfContents(1).Update

    ActiveDocument.ActiveWindow.View.Type = wdPrintView
    Application/Options.Pagination = True

    Any ideas or suggestions welcome. In effect, I would like to control when WORD repaginates.

    Thanks in advance.
    Thanks.
    Robie
