Greetings fellow tech writers!

I am not a VB guy, but at a client's request and with great fear &
loathing, have set up a Word 2010 doc (.docm) so that it will have buttons
in it that print designated pages when clicked. I have that part working ok.

What I am struggling with is how to incorporate the code to print the
pages, but not show the button on the printed pages.

My code looks like this:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
ActiveDocument.PrintOut Range:=wdPrintRangeOfPages, Pages:="6"
End Sub
_____________________________________________________________________

Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()

End Sub
_____________________________________________________________________

Private Sub CommandButton11_Click()
ActiveDocument.PrintOut Range:=wdPrintRangeOfPages, Pages:="4-5"
End Sub
_____________________________________________________________________

Private Sub CommandButton21_Click()
ActiveDocument.PrintOut Range:=wdPrintRangeOfPages, Pages:="2-3"
End Sub

The code I find that seems to be what I want is:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

With ActiveDocument
.Shapes(1).Visible = msoFalse
.PrintOut Background:=False
.Shapes(1).Visible = msoTrue
End With

End Sub


I haven't been able to figure out how/where to incorporate any of this
without getting errors, or I get no error, but the button remains visible.

Can anyone please show me what to put where, so that I will still print my
pages, but the button won't show? I try to avoid VB....

Thanks!

Bob
