Thanks,

Don't think there is a maximum number of pages. As many as you want as
long as the max file size is not exceeded. The max file size is
documented somewhere but it's so huge so as to be not something I've
tried to remember. Huge.

Do you ask for a particular reason to solve a problem?

There is no maximum number of pages. Some users report documents upwards of
10,000 pages. What there is is maximum file size, which is 32 MB, not
counting graphics. Since it is virtually impossible to reach the 32 MB limit
with text alone, you're probably safe.

You don't tell us why you need this info!

Large Documents (User Manuals) that have a lot of images
(Screen Shots etc) can corrupt easily.

I recently completed a Manual that readily became corrupt
at about 9MB - luckily it would cause Word to crash, and so
was easily (Auto-)Recovered.

It is probably wise to use Master Document/Subdocuments for
any solid body of work.

It works faster, is more reliable and can readily be broken up
and zipped for e-mail etc.
