How do I copy a page from Word onto the Clipboard


I’m trying to automate the copying of a particular page from a word document onto the clipboard

The closest I can currently get is with the following script (posted elsewhere)

tell application “Microsoft Word”
copy object text object of front document
end tell

which seems to copy the first page only (when I paste from the clipboard page 1 appears only)

I’ve seen several scripts referring to paragraphs but nothing to obtaining the text object of a particular page

Many thanks,
