Default While in footer, determining section orientation

I need to adjust the tab settings in a footer based on whether the section is in landscape or portrait orientation.

I've tried the following code:
Dim sec As Section

For Each sec In ActiveDocument.Sections
    ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.SeekView = wdSeekCurrentPageFooter
    ActiveDocument.DefaultTabStop = InchesToPoints(0.5)
    If sec.PageSetUp.Orientation = wdOrientPortrait then
        Selection.ParagraphFormat.TabStops.Add Position:=InchesToPoints(2.88), _
        Alignment:=wdAlignTabRight, Leader:=wdTabLeaderSpaces
        Selection.ParagraphFormat.TabStops.Add Position:=InchesToPoints(5.75), _
        Alignment:=wdAlignTabRight, Leader:=wdTabLeaderSpaces
' Set tabs for landscape orientation here
End If
    ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.SeekView = wdSeekMainDocument
Next sec

End Sub

But I get an "This command is not available" from the sec.PageSetUp.Orientation.

Help, please. What am I doing wrong?

Many thanks!
