    Insert a section break between the two sections of the document.

    Put the cursor somewhere in Section 2, then From Insert > Page Numbers, choose Format... and set the Start At value to 1. Close the dialog box without inserting any page numbers.

    In the footer put { PAGE } of { SECTIONPAGES }
    (The { and } should be inserted by typing Control-F9, not typed from the keyboard)

    Thank you for your reply...
    As I understand SECTIONPAGES will give me number of pages in a section..and
    next section will start again from 1 and so on...but how to number also
    across a couple of sections?

    Suppose my 8 page document has some two procedures, first is 3 page, second
    is 5 page document and this 5 page document procedure has a couple of
    sections..so in this case I choose "continue from previous" and my MAIN
    question: how do I make 2 numberings?

    One numbering shows me total page numbers "Page of total physical page
    numbers" and another numbering shows me how many pages are in some part of my
    word document for example to show me that my procedure 2 which has 5 pages
    (and a couple of sections inside) will show me Page 1/5 up to page 5/5, and
    in footer/header I will have also Page 4/8 up to page 8/8....
    I can re-start numbering of each part of my word document from 1...but total
    page number also changes into 1....
    Please help if anybody can ...did I clearly said what I need?

    Re: Word numbering (MS word 2003)

    Do you have a compelling reason to combine the documents into one document? Separate documents would seem to be easier to manage.

    Word maintains three kinds of page numbers:
    - The current page number.
    - The number of pages in the current section
    - The number of pages in the document.
    The problem with the type of numbering you want is that the total number of pages in a group of sections depends on sections other than the current one; there is no direct support for that, so it becomes complicated.
