Section Object (Word)
Published: July 16, 2012
Represents a single section in a selection, range, or document. The Section object is a member of the Sections collection. The Sections collection includes all the sections in a selection, range, or document.
Use Sections(Index), where Index is the index number, to return a single Section object. The following example changes the left and right page margins for the first section in the active document.
With ActiveDocument.Sections(1).PageSetup .LeftMargin = InchesToPoints(0.5) .RightMargin = InchesToPoints(0.5) End With
Use the Add method or the InsertBreak method to add a new section to a document. The following example adds a new section at the beginning of the active document.
Set myRange = ActiveDocument.Range(Start:=0, End:=0) ActiveDocument.Sections.Add Range:=myRange myRange.InsertParagraphAfter
The following example adds a section break above the first paragraph in the selection.
The Headers and Footers properties of the specified Section object return a HeadersFooters object.
