Variant

The type of break to be inserted.Can be one of the WdBreakType constants. If omitted, the default value is wdPageBreak.

When you insert a page or column break, the range is replaced by the break. If you don't want to replace the range, use the Collapse method before using the InsertBreak method. When you insert a section break, the break is inserted immediately preceding the Range.

Some of the constants listed above may not be available to you, depending on the language support (U.S. English, for example) that you’ve selected or installed.

This example inserts a page break immediately following the second paragraph in the active document.

Set myRange = ActiveDocument.Paragraphs(2).Range 
With myRange 
 .Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseEnd 
 .InsertBreak Type:=wdPageBreak 
End With
