    OK, I know this has been addressed before, but I just can't seem toi find it! I have a 10 page document that I want to start page numbering on page 2 as page 2, and end on page 7. Ideas?
    Thanks in advance.

    OK...here is what to do. (The secret is in the use of section breaks)

    Ensure that you have a next page section break at the top of page two.
    On page two, insert a page number ensuring that you change the property of that number to start with two. (This you can do when you go into the format number option)
    The page numbers will continue through the document.
    At the top of page eight, insert another next page section break.
    Ensure that the section break does not copy settings from the previous pages.
    Then delete the page numbers from page eight.

    Effectively, the two section breaks create a barrier for the numbering (and any other page setup options). Each section IOW, can have its own page setup.
    Regards,
    Rudi

    I believe the simplest solution is to go to File, Page Setup, select the Layout tab and check the "different first page" box.

    Hey Chuck... you are quite right.

    The section break is necessary for the end of the doc where you need page numbering to end at pg 7.

    Hi Rudi, and you're quite right about ending page numbers.

    P.S. I have cousins in Cape Town and wish I could afford to visit.

    Really....thats great!

    This global "recession" is a bummer! But on the bright side...a visit at this point is not recommended as the weather is really uncomfortable. Cape Town and surrounding areas have been under one of the hottest heatwaves in recent seasons and it it just so uncomfortable; not only with the 40+ degrees, but also with the many veld-fires that have been burning in the regions. There is a constant haze of smoke in the air! You should come in the winter when the temperature is mild and the rain has made the countryside nice and green. Then areas like Paarl and Stellenbosch (the winelands) are breathtaking.

    Hope you can make it down here sometime.

    My brother has just come back from the States. He had the most amazing time touring through 3 or 4 states. He told me its a treat and I should go when I get the chance.
    Regards,
    Rudi
