Two Page Numbering Schemes in Same Document - Word 2010

Q: Two Page Numbering Schemes in Same Document - Word 2010

I am trying to format a very long manuscript and am having a page numbering issue.

I know how to link/unlink headers and footers and create numbering within sections. So, my chapters are sectioned and numbered and each chapter starts with page 1.

I also need a running total of pages. I can't seem to have two formats in the same header (a section page numbering and an overall page numbering) so I planned to put the chapter numbers in the headers (unlinked to previous) and the total page numbering in the footer because they can still be linked.

Sounded good, but when I format the page numbering to start with '1' in the header, even though it is unlinked, the page formatting changes in the footer.

Is there any way around this?

I'm using Word 2010 in Microsoft Office Professional 2010 and Windows 7 Professional, if that helps.

I have a word file with page numbering starting at 227. From page 246 is the two column index. But at that point the page numbers go wonky, repeats number of first page 227 or numbers repeat on successive pages. I have tried compiling the index as a separate file then adding it to the end of the main file all to no avail. Is this a nother famous MS Word glitch of which I am so far unaware?
I assume it is due to some disconnect or internal confusion when the two-columned pages start. How do I get it to work properly with page numbers in proper numerical sequence from start to end of this document?

I have Word 2010 (trial version) installed on a Dell E6520 laptop with the i5 processor, 8 GB RAM, and Win 7/Pro SP1.

I am trying to create a document with 3 sections:

Section 1: Title page (not numbered)

Section 2: Preface material, 3 + pages, using i, ii (etc.) (in a footer) numbering starting at i, with format to be (page number) of (number of pages), to include only the number of pages in this section (for example, i, ii, iii, iv, v). The page number format I want is Page i of v).

Section 3: Content, multiple pages (perhaps 50 or more), using 1, 2 (etc.) (in a footer) numbering, starting at 1, with format to be (page number) of (number of pages), to include only the number of pages in this section (for example, 1, 2, 3, . . . 49, 50). The page number format I want is Page 1 of 50).

At this point, I have the three sections. I have the number formatting correct.

However, no matter what I do, I cannot get the number of pages correct in each section. That field in each section's footer reflects the number of pages in both sections 1 and 2. That is, as I add pages in Section 3, the number of pages changes in both sections 2 and 3 (although the formatting, i vs 1 remains consistent in each section). And yes, I have disabled the "Link to Previous" feature, and yes, I have used the Header & Footer Tools/Quick Parts/ Field/Page and NumPages fields.

So . . . what do I have to do to fix the number of pages display? I searched this forum without success.

A:Solved: Word 2010 Page Numbering Problem

Hi mlmorris,

If I understand you correctly you want:
Section 1 : no page numbering
Section 2: i of iii, ii of iii, iii of iii
Section 3: 1 of 50 , 2 of 50....50 of 50


1 You need footer 'different first page' and remove any page numbering set.
2. You need 'start at 1' for each section page number
3. You are probably using NUMPAGES for the 'y' part of 'page x of y', you should be using SECTIONPAGES i.e. not the number of pages in the whole document, instead the number of pages in that section.
Edit the footer and replace the 'y' by insert field SECTIONPAGES. (you can get it from Quickparts on the Insert ribbon.

This question is about using "Page {PAGE} of {NUMPAGES}."

I've read many solutions for this online and in MS's help files. None of them are working, and it really has me perplexed because I consider myself an advanced user.

My document is a book:

The first page of my book is a cover page. It shouldn't be counted in page numbering.
Beginning on the second page, my book has a TOC and then 9 chapters.
The TOC and each chapter are set up in their own sections. (I do this because I include the chapter's name - which is the section name - in the footer along with page numbers. It also facilitates creating the TOC)
I want the TOC to be counted as Page 1
All of that works fine for the {PAGE} page number. To accomplish it, I told Word to start counting page numbers from 0, and I suppressed displaying the number on the Cover. Then for subsequent pages I selected "Continue from previous section."
My issue is that I really want to show both the current page and the total number of pages ("Page {PAGE} of {NUMPAGES}") in the footer.

When I try that, {PAGE} displays correctly, but {NUMPAGES} shows one too many. It is obviously counting the cover page.

Evidently what I did in #5 above only affects the count for {PAGE} and not for {NUMPAGES}.

All over the web I find the simple solution of using a formula field for {NUMPAGES} as follows:

Actually, I think that would do the opposite of what I want. I would probably have to... Read more

A:Solved: Word 2007 Page Numbering: Make {NUMPAGES} start counting from Page 2?

I was just messing with the same issue and found a solution:


This may look exactly like something you tried already but here is the difference:

Instead of typing in the curly braces ( { ) manually, you have to hit "Ctrl-F9" to insert a field, then do the same for the braces around "NUMPAGES". You wind up with a field inside a field. That way it interprets the "NUMPAGES" as your document property, returns a number like "42", then the next field takes the equation "= 42 - 1" and returns "41". If you don't use "CTRL-F9" to enter the "NUMPAGES" field, it sees the first curly brace and stops, seeing it as a syntax error.

Hope it works for you! It worked for me!

A:Numbering in Word 2010

Before we do anything to compromise your dissertation, have you attempted to follow the numbering procedures on a brand new document? The Normal.dotm file may be causing your problems. Here is a link to read and decide if you want to proceed. One change may be in order. Perhaps instead of deleting any copies of Normal.dotm, right click and rename to normal.dotm2. If you have to start over, you could then delete the new .dotm files the system creates, and rename .dotm2 back to .dotm and you'd be back where you started from, at the least. Possibly you may need to disable addins for word 2010 (google it) or disable any anti-virus you are using (for testing purposes). (If you have more than 1 antivirus program, you must permanently kill 1 of them, never have 2 running!)

A:How to start Word's page numbering on a different page?

a horrible question

you're wanting to use section breaks to define specific parts of your document
- have some sections without page numbers, then some with page numbers
- and the page numbers starting at a specific number on a specific page and going in order from there
right ?

see Dreamboat's webpage for some initial info.

your first section should have the unnumbered pages
your next section should have the numbered pages

you create a section break by clicking on 'insert' from the menu bar and choosing 'break'
normally use 'next page' when it asks what kind of break you want
it helps to have the option selected to show all characters, marks etc so you can see where the breaks are (tools, options, formatting marks)

you format the numbering through page numbering, also in the 'insert' section (i don't use this option)
through the header/footer options - you can insert a page number, insert the number of pages, or format the page number (ie where it starts etc)

this is one of the most frustrating things to master in word (in my opinion ) because it seems to have it's own logic
- once you get the hang of it, it works well

is a very simple example [forum doesn't allow .doc attachments)
- no page number on page one
- page number on page two, starting at 1

note: when printing, your printer sees all pages without knowing what page number you gave it

I have tried the formula with the Cntr F9, but that gives me a syntax error.

A:page numbering in word

You didn't mention which version of Word you are using, but my reply applies to 2003 and 2000.

I write novels using Word 2003, and I insert Section Break after the title page to start the page numbering of the new section. Then, after accessing View/Header or Footer, I type in my last name/title and close. Next, I click on Insert/Page Numbers and indicate where I want them to appear, that I don't want the first page of the section numbered and -- this is important to you -- click on FORMAT. Down at the bottom, click on Start With (which deselects Same as Previous Section) and confirm that the appropriate page number appears or change it to whatever you need. Click OK and OK to get out, and your section and page numbers should work for you.

A:Page Numbering In Word

There is no automatic way to do that. You can set a different first page, but the i ii iii is the killer. Im pretty sure office 2007 can do this, but Ive never seen anyone do it with 2k.

The simplest way would be to have 2 different documents. First one has different first page with no header, then the i ii iii numbering, and the second document has the page x of y numbering.

Its View->Header and Footer.

A:Solved: Page numbering in MS Word

There are several ways to do this. The most comprehensive way is a bit tricky, so I'll leave that out.

Most likely you'll want to put page numbers in the footer. Here's a really easy way to do that:
Click View-->Header and Footer.

In the Header and Footer toolbar, depress the Switch Between Header and Footer button. You can hold the mouse over different buttons to see their names; in the default toolbar, it is the ninth button from the left.

Once the cursor has been placed in the footer, in the Header and Footer toolbar, click Insert AutoText. This opens a small list of commonly used texts or phrases.

From the list, select Page X of Y.
You can use AutoText anywhere in the document; I gave instructions for editing the Footer because that's the most common application. You can click
Insert-->AutoText from the menu bar at any point in the document to make an AutoText insertion.



Eh, I might as well include the comprehensive way. Word has a number of field codes that handle this sort of thing. There is a field code called PAGE that displays the number, or index, of the current page. There is also a field code called NUMPAGES that displays the total count of all the pages in the document (which, technically, is a collection). The AutoText Page X of Y is actually Page { PAGE } of { NUMPAGES } (the braces {} denote field codes). You can use those field codes as necessary to make custom page numbers.

I have a document, where I have "Chapter - Heading 1" set for each of the main headers so that these not only show in the Table of Contents, but also so that the page numbers have the chapter number included.

Problem is .... the chapter numbering, does not go sequentially with what I am trying to do .. (e.g., I must skip numbers here and there)


I have figured out that by having the "Style" applied to the main headings and by right clicking and choosing "set numbering value" it will skip to whatever number I want ... BUT ... the page number stays attached to the previous section (as I'm using section breaks) and doesn't update.

A:Creating a Task in Outlook 2010 from a Word 2010 Document

I think this will do the job for you:
Add & Create Outlook 2010 Tasks From Word 2010


You can create a task from Word 2010 document and save it under Outlook 2010 tasks. This feature is by default concealed but you can make it apparent on Quick Access toolbar and use it directly.

In order to use this feature, you need to make this feature apparent on Word 2010 Quick Access Toolbar, head over to Quick Access Toolbar and from small drop down button click More Commands.

You will reach Word Options dialog. Hit drop-down button present beneath the Choose commands and select All Commands. Now scroll-down the list and find Create Microsoft Outlook Task command. Select it and click Add (>>) to show it on Quick Access toolbar pane. Once added, hit OK.

First save the document and then select any portion of the text in the document from which you want to create the task, from Quick Access toolbar, click Outlook task button.

Upon click, it will create Outlook task for the Word document and you will reach Outlook Task dialog where you can set Start and Due date for the task and add more information about it. Save & close the task to view it under Outlook tasks.

When opening task in Outlook 2010, you can also view the document from which it was created from, just double-click the document to open it.

In Word 2002, I have quite an extensive macro that inserts text, tables and graphics. Some of the tables are supposed to have their borders turned off.

My beginning of the macro opens a new document, does the page setup and then adds page numbering.

This is the code.:

Documents.Add DocumentType:=wdNewBlankDocument

ActiveWindow.View.Type = wdPrintView

With ActiveDocument.PageSetup
.Orientation = wdOrientPortrait
.TopMargin = InchesToPoints(0.3)
.BottomMargin = InchesToPoints(0.5)
.LeftMargin = InchesToPoints(0.5)
.RightMargin = InchesToPoints(0.5)
.Gutter = InchesToPoints(0.5)
.HeaderDistance = InchesToPoints(0)
.FooterDistance = InchesToPoints(0.2)
.PageWidth = InchesToPoints(8.5)
.PageHeight = InchesToPoints(11)
.MirrorMargins = True
End With

With ActiveDocument.Sections(1)
.Footers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).PageNumbers.Add _
PageNumberAlignment:=wdAlignPageNumberCenter, _
End With
When I run the macro with the “ActiveDocument.Sections(1)” commented out, the tables show no borders like they are supposed to. If I Un-Comment the “ActiveDocument.Sections(1)” and run the macro, all the tables have their borders on. Anyone have an idea why?

Actually, I would like to have the Odd page numbers on the right and the Even page numbers on the left but I had some trouble getting that to work correctly so I settled for having the page numbers in the center on all pages. If you could help me with the code to get the Odd/Even page numbering to work, I’... Read more

A:Word VBA Page Numbering turns Table borders on.

I know nothing about using Word macros so I'm sorry I can't help. But what you're doing seems an exceedingly complicated way to generate a new document. How often do you do it? Why don't you just set your document template to a layout of different odd and even page header and footer?

I have written a 20 page booklet with the page setup as A5 size, which will be printed on A4 paper.

Pages 1 and 2, and 19 and 20 will form the front and back cover, with page 1 showing an illustration, page 2 blank, and pages 19 and 20 showing maps. These pages should NOT show any page numbers.

I want real page numbers to show only on pages 3 to 18 as 1 through 16.

After page 2 I inserted a next page section break and another after page 18. I then clicked Insert, Page Numbers on page 3 and the numbers 1 onwards appear as footnotes until page 18 (as 16), which is correct.

BUT page 1 and 2 now appear at the bottom of real pages 19 and 20 and when I attempt to delete these last two, by double-clicking on the footnote, selecting the footnote number and pressing delete, ALL the page numbers disappear. I really want page numbers to show only on pages 3 through 18.

Can anyone offer any solution, please?

Hey All,

This refers to Page Numbering while working on a document in Google Docs and transferring it to Word. As well as working on a document in Word and transferring it to Google Docs. In assuming these questions assume that this just a general school paper with no advanced formatting such as macros, charts, tables, or graphics Just a conventional average 5-8 page paper that is text only

Which of the following seems to work better?

1.) Creating a document in Google Docs and than after finishing it, opening it in Word and adding page numbers in Word?

2.) Creating a document in Word, and than after finishing it, opening it up in Google Docs (Converted to Google Docs format) and than adding page numbers in Google Docs?

*Note that in the instance of example #1 and #2 the document at first has no page numbers.

3.) Now suppose a document is created in Word already with page numbers. How well will Google Docs convert the document?

4.) Now suppose a document is created in Google Docs with page numbers. How well will that convert to Word? For reference, I use Word 2010. In answering this question, mention what version of Word that you have.

I am trying to fix a problem for the fire company. There is a 24 page WORD document with a footer that provides for page numbering. However, the program insists on calling the first page "2." I have indicated it should start page numbering with "1" to no avail. It is as if there is an invisible page that the program sees as page one.

Before I manually numbered the pages, I thought I would seek your help.

Thanks, {redoak}

For paragraph spacing i've tried the line and page breaks box and it doesn't work. Thank you!!!

I am having troubling with page numbering.

I have a large document that has Annexes A and B. These are both new sections and I have the numbering starting at page 1. I have formatted the numbering and put it in the footer. The format is as follows:

A-1 of 10

The "1" is automatically generated with the {PAGE} code and the "A" and the "10" are entered manually. Therefore, if the Annex A grows or shrinks, I must change the "10" manually.

So I have two problems. I must change the total number of pages in the section manually and the other problem has to do with the Table of Contents.

When the TOC is generated, it does not see the "A" and thus numbers the pages 1,2,3, ...etc. I have to manually enter "A-" before each page number.

Any solutions to these problems would be appreciated.

A:Microsoft Word 2000 Page Numbering...egads!

Therefore, if the Annex A grows or shrinks, I must change the "10" manually.

Instead of typing the 10, Insert-Field, Document numbering, and choose SecPages (section pages).

I have to manually enter "A-" before each page number.

That is correct unless you make the A part of a numbering format in the heading style that you're using for your TOC. Also, when you insert the page number, you must format it to "include chapter number".

The whole setup of a doc with Appendices just sucks. Sorry.

When I download save or display a word document which is locked some of the fonts change and this makes the documant look bad and as a result it is not paged correctly.
I am using Windows 7 and MS Office Home & Business 2010.
If I use a different computer which is XP and 2003 the document displays correctly, if I copy this to the Windows 7 PC the document font is changed.
The lock document is a form which has been locked for easy completion.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hello All,

I manage the maintenance on a corporate jet. I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop running Vista. We use Microsoft Word 2007 for our maintenance log book, oldest maintenance entries to newest. I want WORD to open my logbook document on the last page of the document when I fire it up, not the first. Any ideas? My email address is [email protected].

Thanks, Greg Stultz

A:How can I get Word 2007 to open on the last page of a multi-page document?

The only way I know how to do this is using a macro. Open the document and press ALT + F11 to open the VBA editor. In the project explorer window on the left you will need to right click the object labeled "ThisDocument" and choose "View Code"

Paste the code below into the blank code window and save the document. You will need to adjust the macro security level to medium or low from the main Word window by clicking TOOLS --> MACRO --> SECURITY
Private Sub Document_Open()

Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdStory

End Sub
You can also accomplish the same action without using a macro by opening the document and clicking CTRL + END to take you to the last page.
