Exclamation Want to remove first 2 blank pages

I have a script in DOORS that creates a document with a table. However, for some reason, it always adds 2 empty pages before the actual content. I have been trying to write a simple script that will delete these first 2 pages, but it's not working. Here's the code I'm using:
Code:
Sub removeExtraPages()
    Dim Rng As Range, iPage As Long
    iPage = 2
    With ActiveDocument
        Set Rng = .GoTo(What:=wdGoToPage, Name:=iPage)
        Set Rng = Rng.GoTo(What:=wdGoToBookmark, Name:="\page")
        Rng.Delete
    End With
End Sub

I found this code from this forum, but can't seem to figure out what is causing the problem. I'm hoping someone can help me out.




Chris

Cannot put code tag for some reason.


try this:



Sub DeleteFirstTwoPages()
Dim oSec As section
Dim i As Integer
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
For Each oSec In ActiveDocument.Sections
For i = 1 To 2
oSec.Range.Select
Selection.Collapse
ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("\page").Range.Delete 'this deletes current page
Next i
Next oSec
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
End Sub

If the first actual content is the table then:

Code:
Sub ScratchMacro()

Dim oRng As Range
  Set oRng = ActiveDocument.Range
  oRng.End = ActiveDocument.Tables(1).Range.Start
  oRng.Delete
lbl_Exit:
  Exit Sub
End Sub
