Microsoft Word/word 2010


I have a word document of 4 pages  this is not proprietary but is an application for engineering registration     you will note that the document is a combination of pdf and word    could you tell me how to separate page 3 from the remaining 3 pages

what is a document like this called

thank you

when i send the message there is a note about wrong file number  is it possible you might give me your e-mail   i could attach my document to that

There is no such thing as a combination of a PDF and a Word file. If the file has a .pdf extension, it is a PDF; if it has a .doc or .docx extension, it is a Word file. It's possible that a portion of the document is a protected form, or it could be that each page of a PDF has been inserted as a picture. In general, the way to extract a page from a Word document is to delete the remaining pages (from a copy of the document) or to copy the desired page and paste it into a new document.

If you want to send the document to, I'll take a look.

I've been using Word for Windows since version 2.0 (1992), and the more I learn about it, the more I realize how little I know. But I may know a few things that you don't, and I'll help if I can. I answer many questions every day in Microsoft's peer support forums and as a result have been awarded the MVP (Most Valuable Professional) designation by Microsoft Corporation. You may be able to find the answer to your question at the Word MVPs' FAQ site or at my own Word FAQ site, so please check those first! Please, no questions about VBA (macros), Registry editing, networks, or complex merges, as I have no experience with these aspects of Word, nor do I have any experience with Word for Mac. Please indicate which version of Word you are using; if you are not sure, see "What version of Word do I have?".


I have a master's degree in classics (Latin), which is surprisingly helpful, though I no longer teach. The things I am proudest of: Having raised two children to maturity, both Merit Scholars, both college graduates (one a philosophy major!), one Phi Beta Kappa (from Harvard!); having been made a Paul Harris Fellow by my Rotary club; having been designated a Microsoft MVP.
