This is placed here for my convineinece purpose only.

 


 

Hi,Here is a step-by step instruction for page numbering in Word 2007. Unfortunately it is much more tedious than it was in Word 2003, but I think that I have captured all the required steps.

 

Remove the page break between the introduction and the body of the document. (Cursor before first word in Body section then backspace) From the Ribbon select ‘Page Layout’, then in the ‘Page Setup’ section, select ‘Breaks’ In the drop-down list select ‘Next Page’ in the ‘Section breaks’ part of the list.

 

Your cursor should now be in the first page of the Body section of your document. From the Ribbon select ‘Insert’, then in the ‘Header & Footer’ section select Footer. Select ‘Edit Footer’ (near the bottom of the list)

 

Your cursor is now in the footer. From the context Ribbon  ‘Design’ tab, in the ‘Navigation’ section, click ‘Link to Previous’ to deselect that option, (the ‘Same as previous’ tab above the right hand side of the footer will disappear).

 

From the Ribbon select ‘Insert’ then from the ‘Header & Footer’ section click on ‘Page Number’ and click ‘Current position’ and select ‘Simple – Plain number’ design. Select the number and from the ‘Header & Footer’ section, select ‘Page Number’ and then ‘Format page numbers…’ In the dialog box that opens, in the ‘Number format:’ box select the Arabic numeral style. In the ‘Page numbering’ section click ‘Start at:’ and check that it shows 1. Click OK.

 

From the Ribbon, select the ‘Design’ tab and in the ‘Navigation’ section select ‘Previous section’ Your cursor will now be in the section 1 footer. From the Ribbon select ‘Insert’ then from the ‘Header & Footer’ section click on ‘Page Number’ and click ‘Current position’ and select ‘Simple – Plain number’ design. Select the number and from the ‘Header & Footer’ section, select ‘Page Number’ and then ‘Format page numbers…’ In the dialog box that opens, in the ‘Number format:’ box select the Roman numeral style. In the ‘Page numbering’ section click ‘Start at:’ and check that it shows 1. Click OK.

 

Click on any normal text to leave the footer.

 

You now have two sections with independent numbering.

 

You can select the footers again and and add tabs (and tab stops if the defaults are not suitable). Format the font of the page numbers as required. The section 1 footer and the section 2 footer will need to be formated separately.

 

If you need a Page 1 of 99 style, do this: Go the the last page in the section, for the Body of the document this might be the last page of the document or the last page that contains the body text (perhaps before References or an Index). From the Ribbon select ‘Insert’ and ‘Bookmark’ from the ‘Links’ section In the dialog box that opens enter a name such as: “LastBodyPage” Names must not contain spaces, but underscores are OK, e.g., “Last_Intro_Page” Click Add.

 

Now open the relevant footer – in section 2 in this case. Type “Page ” and ” of ” around the number and then with the cursor after ” of ” Select ‘Insert’ from the Ribbon (not from the ‘Design’ section). In the ‘Links’ section select ‘Cross-reference’ In the dialog box that opens, from the ‘Reference type:’ box select ‘Bookmark’ from the drop-down list. In the ‘Insert reference to:’ box select ‘Page number’ Select your bookmark (e.g., “LastBodyPage”) in the ‘For which bookmark:’ list. (even if it’s the only bookmark you must select it) Click Insert, then Close You now have something like “Page 1 of 99″.

 

Hope this helps.
