    Re: Page / Chapter Numbering (2003)

    1a) Make sure that you have turned on outline numbering for (at least) the Heading 1 style. You can do this in the Outline Numbered tab of Format | Bullets and Numbering...
    2) Go to the first chapter.
    3) Make sure that you have a chapter title formatted as Heading 1. It should show a number.
    4) Select View | Header and Footer.
    - You should see the Header and Footer toolbar. If not, post back.
    - Among the buttons on the toolbar, you'll see the three depicted below.
    - If necessary, press Tab once or twice to go the right hand side.
    - Click the first of these buttons to insert the page number.
    - Click the third of these buttons to open the Format Page Numbers dialog (see my previous reply).
    - You can specify that you want to include the chapter number here.
    - Click OK when done.
    - Click Close on the Header and Footer toolbar.

    Re: Page / Chapter Numbering (2003)

    Hans and Stuart: Thanks for the help. I need to dig into the books a read a little about page numbering. I understand the links and connections to each other, but its just not working for me. I will reengage with you later.

    Thanks Wes

    If you wish, you can make a copy of your "real" document, strip out most of the contents (but keep the first few pages), replace sensitive or proprietary text with dummy text and attach it to a reply, so that Loungers can take a look at it.

    Re: Page / Chapter Numbering (2003)

    Hans: I will do so on Monday. Although I have my doc at home, its on another computer (office laptop)--and I dont have a memory stick or any other way to transfer the doc to this computer. Nor can I hook the other to the internet. Its due to security measures put on my work laptop. At any rate, this will force me into the books and keep me busy until Monday.

    Re: Page / Chapter Numbering (2003)

    If you only want the chapter number to appear in the header then this can be tricky.

    An alternative approach is to put the Heading 1 style paragraph in a frame. This can be moved so that it is in the same position on the page as the header.

    This avoids having to manually type a copy of the chapter name and number, which may lead to errors in the future.

    Re: Page / Chapter Numbering (2003)

    Stuart, That works great, but I want to continue the Chapter 1 Title on each page, I also dont want to show Para #s. Last night I was able to setup all my styles and hide the Para numbers. I also learned that the TOC would not pick up something (chapter 1 title) that was entirely hidden. I will have to send out a page or two of my doc on Monday when I get into the office.

    But now I have another problem. My TOC began like this: .................................................. ..............................Administration...... ...................................1-1

    It would only happen on the first line not on the Heading 2s or beyond?

    I think you're making things unnecessarily difficult for yourself by going against the way Word does these things. I'd leave the Heading 1 paragraphs visible.

    Re: Page / Chapter Numbering (2003)

    Hans, My wife says I am stubborn! I have attached a sample of my doc--minus graphics and other stuff to meet the below 100k rule. Noticed I hid the Heading 1 which allows my TOC to show the 1.1 and beyond paragraphs. Yes, I will need to type in the Chapter 1 titles, but thats ok. But look at my TOC, it went crazy on me with the ............ I am going to try it without the heading 1 hidden to see if that is the problem.

    Re: Page / Chapter Numbering (2003)

    If you give the TOC2 style a very small hanging indent, or if you specify a left-aligned tab for the TOC2 style just to the right of the left margin, the TOC will look OK.
    See attached version.

    Hans: Perfect. I do appreciate all the assistance. This is really forcing me to learn the tools; particularly when I want to do something unorthodox!

    Thanks Wes
