Section Object (Word)

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 

The following example adds a section break above the first paragraph in the selection.

Selection.Paragraphs(1).Range.InsertBreak _ 


The Headers and Footers properties of the specified Section object return a HeadersFooters object.
