multi-page tiff files (2003)
I work with an online database which has it's output as a multipage tiff file. Is there a way to import these files into Word? When I import/picture etc. I just get the first page. Is there a better way to do this?

Re: multi-page tiff files (2003)
Although I haven't done a lot of work with multipage tiffs I don't think you will have any luck trying to get Word to import other than the first page - perhaps a search of the Word import filters would prove me wrong but I suspect that the graphic import dialog would also need to be customised to handle multipage files and I suspect this hasn't been done in Word.
I would attack the problem by finding a freeware/shareware solution which automates the splitting of multipage tiffs into individual files and then use those to import into Word. A search on Google reveals several options. I note one is a VBA method which is the one I would pursue but you might get more mileage from some of the shareware packages.
