    prints {NUMPAGES} instead of number of pages (WinXP W2003)

    After printing my document I noticed that the footer contained Page {PAGE} of {NUMBPAGES} instead of the actual page numbers. This shows up in the print preview and on the paper, but Word's print layout view show the correct content for the footer. I have tried this using autotext from the headers and footers view toolbar, as well as inserting the code by clicking the toolbar buttons. Result is the same each time. Last time I printed this document, it came out fine, today it started misbehaving. Can any one help with this? TIA Frank

    Select Tools | Options...
    Activate the Print tab.
    Clear the check box "Field codes" in the section "Include with document".
    Click OK.
