    Large Documents (2003 SP1)

    I have been loading some large documents with graphics created by someone else.

    Is there a way to tell when the document is completely loaded (other than watching it paginate it)?

    Probably hard to tell exactly, since Word can repaginate in the background. What do you want to accomplish?

    Re: Large Documents (2003 SP1)

    I want to avoid having Word do something unusual.

    For example, I have noticed that if I print before the document is fully loaded, that some slow loading graphics won't print out properly.

    So ... I'd just like to to go "Ta-Da" when it has the document completely loaded.

    Any ideas?

    No, I think you'll have to wait for pagination to finish.

    And without any idea where pagination ends, all you can do is hope that when it stops mometarily that it is done processing and not just delayed by graphics.

    I'm not happy with that answer, but I guess that closes this thread.

    Thanks Hans

    When I had a similar problem, I just typed Control-End followed by Control-Home. This didn't finish till the document had completely loaded and finished paginating.

    That's what I did - but I can't be sure that it is doing what I think it is.

    A small macro would probably do the trick:<pre>ActiveDocument.Repaginate
    Beep
    </pre>

    I'm thinking that this would only solve my problem if I need to repaginate. My problem is the automatic pagination upon opening the document. Could this solve that sort of problem?

    I'd probably use Ctrl+End as suggested by Stuart. Pagination is a background process, and the macro would make sure that it's finished.

    I haven't noticed or heard that Word makes problems if you print immediately after opening a file. So I'm not sure whether that's really at the heart of your problem, and whether the macro would solve it.

    Rather than open the document, you could right-click on it in explorer and select print! It'll open the document, print and close it. i'd be very surprised if it didn't print certain graphics. (which i've never heard of before myself)
