Determining the Number of Pages in Your Document

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated June 14, 2014)

There may be times in your macros when you need to determine the number of pages in a document. The following code will tell you the number of pages in a document:

TtlPgs = Selection.Information(wdNumberOfPagesInDocument)

After executing this code, the value of TtlPgs represents the total number of physical pages in the document.
