With ActiveDocument.ActiveWindow.View
    .Type = wdPrintView
    .SeekView = wdSeekCurrentPageHeader
End With
same = Selection.InStory(ActiveDocument.Paragraphs(1).Range)
MsgBox same

This example determines whether Range1 and Range2 are in the same story. If they are, bold formatting is applied to Range1.

Set Range1 = Selection.Words(1)
Set Range2 = ActiveDocument.Range(Start:=20, End:=100)
If Range1.InStory(Range:=Range2) = True Then
    Range1.Font.Bold = True
End If
