The Visual Basic for Applications macro instruction to print the current page is

   ActiveDocument.PrintOut Range:=wdPrintCurrentPage

The following VBA macro overrides the Print dialog box (on the File menu) and sets the default print range to Current Page.

Sub FilePrint()
With Dialogs(wdDialogFilePrint)
    .Range = 2
End With
End Sub

For more information about printing options in Visual Basic, click the Office Assistant in the Visual Basic Editor, type "What is the Printout method," click Search, and then click to view "PrintOut Method (Application, Document, and Window Objects)."

NOTE: If the Assistant is hidden, click the Office Assistant button on the Standard toolbar. If the Assistant is not able to answer your query, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
