Microsoft Word: Word jump

By J. Carlton Collins, CPA

Q. Is there a way to jump a specific number of pages forward or backward in a large Microsoft Word document?

A. Yes. To jump a specific number of pages in Word, from the Home tab, select Find, GoTo, and in the resulting Find and Replace dialog box, select Page from the Go to what scroll box, and then, in the Enter page number text box, enter a plus sign (+) or minus sign (-) followed by the specific number of pages forward or backward you want to jump, as pictured in the example below. If you don't enter a plus sign or minus sign, the tool will take you to the page number specified. For instance, in the example, removing the plus sign would result in the tool jumping to page 33, as opposed to 33 pages forward from your current location.
