Page.PageIndex property (Publisher)

Gets the index of the page in the Pages collection of the active document. Read-only.



expression A variable that represents a Page object.


A PageIndex property value is assigned to each page when it is added, and the value is incremented for each additional page. When pages are added or deleted, page index numbers are reassigned such that the first page is always 1 and the page index numbers always increment by 1.

For example, in a publication with five pages, the page index numbers will be 1 through 5, regardless of the page number displayed on the pages themselves.


The following example displays the PageIndex, PageNumber, and PageID properties for all the pages in the active publication.

Dim lngLoop As Long 
With ActiveDocument.Pages 
For lngLoop = 1 To .Count 
With .Item(lngLoop) 
Debug.Print "PageIndex = " & .PageIndex _ 
& " / PageNumber = " & .PageNumber _ 
& " / PageID = " & .PageID 
End With 
Next lngLoop 
End With
