- Enter the name of the Macro in the Macro’s window. Then choose Create.
- Paste the following code in the code window:
Page = InputBox( “Enter the Page to Duplicate” )

.GoTo wdGoToPage, wdGoToAbsolute, Page
.Bookmarks( “\Page” ).Range.Copy
For i = 1 To Count: .Paste: Next
- Tap on the save icon and close the code window. Now in the document window, choose View → Macro → View Macros.
- In the Macros window, choose Run, to start the macro.
