In producing booklets in PDF format I need to specify the number and order of pages to print.  Can "Print Page Numbers" setting on a Word document being converted to PDF be specified from VBA?   If so how?   Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can specify which pages are printed from Word VBA.

The VBA Method is "PrintOut". For example:

ActiveDocument.PrintOut

The syntax is:

.PrintOut(Background, Append, Range, OutputFileName, From, To, Item, Copies, Pages, PageType, PrintToFile, Collate, FileName, ActivePrinterMacGX, ManualDuplexPrint, PrintZoomColumn, PrintZoomRow, PrintZoomPaperWidth, PrintZoomPaperHeight)

You will want to set the Range, From, To and/or the Pages properties as follows:

Range   Optional Variant. The page range. Can be one of the following WdPrintOutRange constants: wdPrintAllDocument, wdPrintCurrentPage, wdPrintFromTo, wdPrintRangeOfPages, or wdPrintSelection.

OutputFileName   Optional Variant. If PrintToFile is True, this argument specifies the path and file name of the output file.

From   Optional Variant. The starting page number when Range is set to wdPrintFromTo.

To   Optional Variant. The ending page number when Range is set to wdPrintFromTo.

Pages   Optional Variant. The page numbers and page ranges to be printed, separated by commas. For example, "2, 6-10" prints page 2 and pages 6 through 10.

Hopefully this will get you going.
