Q: Solved: Page numbering in Word 2007... different numbering for Section 1 and Section

I used to know how to do this but I have forgotten... I need to have the numbers for Section 1 (title page, TOC, etc) be like i, ii, iii, etc... and then Section 2 (Chapter 1) needs to be page 1. Nothing I've tried is working, and I know this is simple, I've just forgotten how to do it! Thank you for your help!!

I'm making a magazine with numbered pages. I don't want the back or front cover to have numbers, so I inserted section brakes and made sure the headers were not linked. I succeeded in getting page numbers to not be on the back or front covers.

But heres the catch: The first page starts numbered at two. Naturally I tried changing the Page Number Formatting to start at 0 instead of 1. However, it literally starts at the number 0.

Slippery little bugger. I can't get it to be 1 no matter what I set it to start at. Any ideas?

Hi Skunky, welcome to TSG.

You say you tried to start the page numbering at 0, but did you try to start the page numbering at 1? I'm assuming you did, since you said you've tried multiple things, but just want to check to make sure.

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: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. Check Word's help files for more information on using field codes.

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.

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.

I'm using Word 2007. I use it to make a lot of tables from lists. They're usually pretty simple and straightforward so I usually use Word instead of Access. Less complicated. I've never solved the problem of numbering, though. Presently working on a document that's going to be about 120 paragraphs, before I combine them and make a table. Each separate paragraph needs to be numbered sequentially, each starting with 1. The auto-numbering presents a formatting problem for me. I can't get the numbers to be included in the data, for editing purposes. Paragraphs highlighted don't highlight the auto-numbers and they can't be formatted. This present document is going to have over 6,000 lines that are going to have to be numbered. How can I get everything numbered in a way that I can include the numbers in the formatting?

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.

If not the non-technical way of doing it would be to insert a blank page into the document where you need the insert and create the insert in a new word file, without page numbering!

I'm writing a thesis that includes a cover page, table of contents, and abstract. I have set up the page numbering so that the cover page is page 0 and that does not appear on the cover page. So my table of contents begins at page 1, my abstract at page 2, and the body of my paper on page 3. I would like the ToC and abstract to be i and ii, respectively, so the paper starts on page 1. Is this possible?

Aye it is if you use section breaks. Add a section break after the page you want to have the roman numerals. Then go into your header and footer for section 2 and turn off "link to previous" on the toolbar. Now go to section 1's footer and change it to roman numerals via the "Format page number" icon on the toolbar.

I've inserted a TOC in the middle of a document which I am NOT using as a TOC. I wanted to use it for the formatting to write a list. Now that it is there the page numbers have restarted from this page on. I've tried going through the pages and selecting continue from previous section for the page numbering. I've also gone through the footers and selected link to previous section but nothing will continue the page numbering without just setting the page number manually. I would prefer that it is linked so that any future modifications to the document don't get messy.

Very long documents are correctly numbered in footer with 1 of 2, 2 of 2 etc

However after going out of word and opening the same doc again we get 1 of 1, 2 of 1 or even 20 of one?

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 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 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".

What file format are you saving in?
Does it only do it one machine?
Have you tried logging into the same machine as a different user?
Your Word preferences may be corrupted for that user. Creating a new user and testing it will cause Word to create new preferences from defaults.

Further than that, uninstalling Office and rebooting, and then manually removing any remaining Office registry keys, followed by reinstalling Office may resolve the issue.

You can also edit your AutoCorrect and AutoFormat settings. I personally disable all autocorrect and autoformat features as i find them more annoying than helpful.

In Word, I want to add automatic page numbering to my document. But suppose I have some X number of title pages that I don't want numbered. How can I have no numbers or headers at all on pages 1 through X, and then start the page numbering only on some arbitrary page X+1, and have the numbering offset, so that page X+1 is numbered p.1, page X+2 is numbered p.2, etc.?

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
- so with the above example printing from page one will give you both pages

it has been scanned for viruses but please feel free to scan it again once it's downloaded

note: i saved it in a lower level .rtf format, not knowing what version of word you have
save it as a .doc from your machine

Good afternoon all

In my report, I'd prefer to see "Continued on next page" rather than the traditional "Page x of Z".

I placed an unbound control in the PageFooterSection called "MyPageControl"

In the PageFooterSection of my report therefore, I create an onFormat Event Procedure thats says:

Me.MyPageControl = IIf(Pages>1, "Continued on Next Page","")

So if there is only one page, I see no text in the footer, but otherwise I see the continuation note.

This doesn't work however. Setting a breakpoint in the code, I inspact and see "Pages" remains at Zero on each page (say I have a 10 page report, OnFormat, Pages=0).

Am I using the wrong logic or the wrong controls?

can anybody turn this light on for me?

Prior to upgrading to Word 2010 I was able to number the rows in a table by entering an AutoNum field in the left-hand column. Now in Word 2010, fields are located under Quick Parts on the Insert tab of the Ribbon, but when I click that button after selecting the column in my table, Field is greyed out on the drop-down list. How can I enter an AutoNum field a table, or is there another way to number rows? The beauty of the AutoNum option is that it allows adding, deleting, or moving rows while still keeping all rows numbered sequentially.

Any help and tips would be gratefully received.

A:Numbering to 100+ in Word

In Word 2007 there is an option to define a new numbering format, and in that dialogue box one can set the alignment (left, center, or right). Does your version of Word have the option to define a new numbering format?

Can anyone help with this problem that I have in MS Word 2000.

I have created a 15 page document with a Title page and a Table of Contents(TOC).

I want to do the following:

1. create a footer with the following page format - page X of Y

2. Ensure that the title and TOC page do not display the footer numbering.

The help feature in Word says a section break should be inserted to prevent a page number from displaying. It is not clear to me where I should do this as the end of TOC page already has a section break and also the Help doesn't indicate how one can prevent page numbers from displaying on two pages.

Any suggestions would be greatly welcomed.


A:Preventing page numbering in title and table of contsnt page

Firstly, in the footer of the required section, you'll need a custom NUMPAGES field, but you'll have to tweak it to allow for however many pages aren't to be counted. I used "-1" because I had a first section containing one page.

See attached for the syntax (NB: you can't type the brackets, they must be inserted with CTRL+F9).

I am entering page numbers for my document and I want to add the chapter number with the page number, e.g., 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, etc.; however, even though the information in the "Format Page Number" area is correct, it only prints the page number without the chapter number, e.g., 1, 2, 3, etc. Do you know what might be wrong and how can I fix the problem?

I use Excel 97 and for the life of me can't figure out how to change where the number goes. Is there a way to place it elsewhere than the bottom right hand corner?

A:Excel Page Numbering

Yes you can change the page numbers.

Go to File, Page Setup. Header/Footer tab and click on the Footer botton. Set the page numbers there.

We have recently upgraded from version 2000 to 2003. The page numbering I had which started at 15 by entering page number+14 has changed from 15, 16, 17 etc to 24, 34, 44 etc.

When I simultaneously enter the centre and left footer with the same formular the number correctly show 15, 16, 17 etc. However if I then delete the right hand footer the centre footer changes to 24, 34 ,44. If I then delete the centre footer the right hand footer also changes to 24, 34 etc.

Please help, as I want to use right hand footer to match page numbering from word.

I have found and tried MANY suggestions for numbering a booklet that I am preparing.
So far, none have worked. I don't need anything fancy, just plain numbers in the lower right hand corner of each page. I have a cover page with one blank page following. I can not get numbers on any page. I am very frustrated.

I have an Excel file with several worksheets in it. Some of the worksheets are two pages, and I want to put page numbers on the second page only --- and leave the first page blank. Is there a way to do that?

Nope. Sorry.

Unless you wanted to write a UDF of your own (example here) and manually input the formula into every page except the first. But that sounds crappy.

I have a very simple form with 3 form fields that populate other ref fields on a single page.

One of the fields is a serial number. I would like the user to be able to enter the serial number (which replicates into a ref field) and then print however many copies they want with each one having the serial number (the same in both places) increased sequentially by one on each print. All other data will remain the same.

The catch is that the starting serial number must be specified by the user rather than being taken from a reference file.

I'm trying to create an Annex for a document in MS Word 2000, with the sub-headings following sequentially, e.g.:

Annex A (set as the top heading)
A.1 Heading 1
A.1.1 Heading 2
A.1.1.1 Paragraph


Annex B
B.1 Heading 1
B.2 Heading 2


Everything's fine until I get to 'Annex B'. The next Heading 1 level just resets to the 'A' counter and I get 'A.1' again!

I've tried everything I can think of, but with no success. I suppose a quick course in Visual Basic is the next step!

I am trying to setup some document templates in word. I have followed Shauna Kelly's guide to create numbered headings. I appear to have done these although upon selecting the previous level number this isn't always displayed. In addition having selected an outline numbered style, sometimes the highlighted item changes which is a surpise.

I would like to have text automatically numbered as follows as the level of heading in the document may vary as follows;

1. Heading

1.1. 2nd heading level

1.1.1. 3rd heading level Text relating to 3rd heading level

1.1.2 3rd heading level Text relating to other 3rd heading level.

Also I would like all my paragraph text justified but cannot find a means to specify this in the formatting and styles info.

I am also using word 2003.

Thank you.

I have tried unsuccessfully to place numbering in sections of my dissertation. I have gone through the steps in many tutorials without success and had many other people try for me but they are not able to get the numbering to work. I sure could use some help, nursepattyb

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!)

I searched for and found Dreamboats post on this topic, but have another question....

...after I open a document, I can go to FORMAT and AUTO FORMAT and OPTIONS to deselect autonumbering....( right so far???)...but can I turn that off for all of Word....or just each document I work on?

(my problem is trying to type a long list of non-sequentially numbered items....Word won't let me skip a auto corrects each time.)

thanks team.....

A:auto numbering in Word

On the formatting toolbar there is an icon for numbering and one for bullets, make sure the one for numbering is unselected when you close word and then when you reopen a new doc. it should stay unselected.
