    Copying Word Documents (2000)

    I self publish a publication for tourists that is distributed in 4 languages. I use translators to convert English to German, French and Spanish. They put their work on diskettes, which I give to the printer to make the pages. This way he doesn't have to worry about reading a language he doesn't understand. My problem is that the translators when they made the diskettes copied all of the pages together, rather than individually. I can print the pages individually, or all in one run, by using the settings on the print tab. But I would like to be able to copy the individual pages to a backup diskette rather than all connected, as the translator has them. There is no print tab that I can mark in this case. Is there some way that I can take a document of 22 pages and put each page individually on a diskette? I'll end up with the same number of pages, but can call up each page individually rather than have the entire document which I must scroll through to find my page.

    WordPerfect used to and probably still has a facility to save a selection of a document as a separate file, which is one way of doing what you need here.

    However in Word you would need to select a page (not easy in Word - no shortcut), paste it into a new document with the page number added to the document name, and then save it to a special folder on your HARD disk. When all the 22 pages are finished I would use Explorer to copy all the files to the diskette. If you let Word save directly to diskette it will take a week! You may find that 22 separate files will take up most of a diskette as you have 22 sets of file overheads plus your data.

    You now just need a VBA expert to code a macro to do this!

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Nirvana,

    There are a couple of methods you can use in this <A target="_blank" HREF= ate+file&hl=en&rnum=1&selm=OCguDt0IBHA.1356@tkmsft ngp02> search </A>.

    The method suggested by Microsoft Word MVP, John McGhie, is one that requires no programming. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
