Moving pages from one word document to another

Moving pages from one word document to another

Moving pages from one word document to another


Does anyone know of a way of moving microsoft word pages to another document.

Something similar to the function in excel or powerpoint.


RE: Moving pages from one word document to another


In word it is possible to insert a file.

Then in the dialogue there is a button for [Range]
Click this button and it will allow you to insert from a bookmarked point in another word document.

Probably easier to Copy and paste though.

Is it lunchtime yet?

RE: Moving pages from one word document to another

You need to tell us what you want to do better.  "Page" in Word is a funny thing.  Although with 2003, there is finally a Page object.  Earlier versions do not have a Page object.

So.  When you post , it is helpful to tell us what version you are using.

Next.  Are you trying to grab a page from the middle of other pages?  Are you trying to grab the first page, the last page?  This can make a difference.  If it is an existing document, do you need it to go to a specific location?

Do you have an existing bookmarks in the document you want to grab the page from?

As you can see, it is very helpful if you tell us what you actually want.

However, to answer the question - as asked, I know LOTS of ways to move a "page" from one document to another.  Just post exactly what you want to happen.

Do you have the other document already open?  Are you making anew document?


RE: Moving pages from one word document to another


Using version 2000.

Would like to move the full page from one document into a separate document.

In document one the page I want to move is page 3 and then place this page betweem page 5 and 6 of document two.


RE: Moving pages from one word document to another

Hi Suggie,

How many sections does each of the Documents have?
If more than one, where, and of what type, are the breaks?

RE: Moving pages from one word document to another

Hi Tony,

There are three text boxes on the page.


RE: Moving pages from one word document to another

Tony asked how many Sections, not how many textboxes.  Pages are part of Sections.

So, again, please describe EXACTLY what you have, and what you want.

Again - is the other document open?

Perhaps more importantly - and again - tell us what you are trying to do.  Are you wanting this to be a repeatable action, like a macro?  After all, really, if you are just doing it once....

select the page you want in document 1
copy it
go to document 2
go to the location you want to paste to
......and paste it.


If you actually want  something more specific than that, tell us more specifics.  Things like Sections, and what breaks there are between them are significant.

If it is something you are going to do often - then the question becomes...is it the SAME page every time?  Is it the same page NUMBER?
