Hi

Thanks for your request. Unfortunately, there is no direct way to determine on which page a particular node is located. However, you can try using code like the following to achieve this:

private int GetTableStartPageNumber(Table table) throws Exception

{

// Create a DocumentBuilder and move it to the bookmark.

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder((Document)table.getDocument());

builder.moveTo(table.getFirstRow().getFirstCell().getFirstParagraph());

// Insert a PAGE field and update it.

Field page = builder.insertField("PAGE");

builder.getDocument().updatePageLayout();

page.update();

int pageNumber = Integer.parseInt(page.getResult());

// Remove PAGE field.

page.remove();

return pageNumber;

}

Hope this helps.

Best regards,

hi,

Thanks. I get error on 'new DocumentBuilder()' since it is abstract.

Please help.

Hi,

I have some problems in getting page number. consider the case when page-1 has a small table and some blank lines (new line char); page-2 has another small table. Then page number of table-2 is retrieved as 1.

Hello

Thanks for your request. I cannot reproduce the problem on my side. I use the following code for testing:

Document doc = new Document("C:\\Temp\\TestTable.doc");

NodeCollection tables = doc.getChildNodes(NodeType.TABLE, true);

for(int i = 0; i < tables.getCount(); i++){

System.out.println("Tabele "+ i + " is started on page " + GetTableStartPageNumber((Table)tables.get(i)));

}

There are 8 tables inside your document, and my output looks like this:

Tabele 0 is started on page 1

Tabele 1 is started on page 1

Tabele 2 is started on page 1

Tabele 3 is started on page 3

Tabele 4 is started on page 3

Tabele 5 is started on page 3

Tabele 6 is started on page 3

Tabele 7 is started on page 5

hi,

Thank you very much. It was my mistake that I did not call page.remove();
Sorry for the inconvenience caused.
