This article discusses how to print a page or a range of pages in Microsoft Word 2013, in Microsoft Word 2010, in Microsoft Office Word 2007, and in Microsoft Office Word 2003.
In Word, you can create a multiple-section document that uses different page numbering in each section. To specify a page or a range of pages to be printed, you must supply both the page number and the section number for the range that you want to print. In a multiple-section document that contains more than one page 1, Word cannot determine which page 1 to print unless you also supply a section number for that page.
To print a range of pages across sections, use the following syntax in the Pages box:
PageNumberSectionNumber-PageNumberSectionNumberFor example, you would type p1s1-p2s2 to print from page 1 of section 1 through page 2 of section 2.
To print a page or a range of pages in Word, follow these steps:
Note Printing pages in relation to their section depends on how the numbering is formatted. If the numbering in the document is set as continuous, referencing page 1 of a particular section most likely does not result in anything being printed. This occurs because, when the numbering is formatted as continuous, the page numbers in all sections except the first do not start with page 1. In this case, the page would have to be referenced according to its overall position in the documents page collection.
For example, in a document that is formatted as follows, here is what the pages would be for both restart and continuous numbering:
Section 1 : 4 pages
Section 2 : 4 pages
