Separate file by pageThe following macro copies text one page at a time and saves that text in a new document. The macro uses the pre-defined bookmark "\page" and the document's built-in property of "number of pages."
Separate file by sectionThe following macro copies text one section at a time and saves that text in a new document. The macro uses the pre-defined bookmark "\section" to create the new document. This macro is useful for breaking up a mail-merge "Merge to New Document" file.
Note When you use this code to select and copy the text content of the document, the header and footer are not retained. Styles, fonts, and layout may change if the main file and the new document are from different templates, but direct formatting is maintained.
