    How do I show the next page's number on the current page. I would like to end the page with ..../2 on page 1

    TIA

    You could tell Word to start numbering at 2 instead of 1.

    Or you could use a calculated field:

    - Press Ctrl+F9 to insert field braces { } (do not type the braces yourself)
    - Type =
    - Press Alt+Shift+P to insert the page number.
    - Type +1 after the page number.
    - You should now see something like { =1+1 }
    - Press F9 to hide the field code and to update its value.

    Hi Mario,

    You probably won't want the 'next page' number to appear on the last page, so I'd suggest redoing the field, using:
    {IF{PAGE}< {NUMPAGES} "..../{={PAGE}+1}"}

    Note: The field brace pairs (ie '{ }') for the above example are created via Ctrl-F9 - you can't simply type them or copy & paste them from this message.
    Cheers,
