    Page xx of yy in Footer (Word 2000)

    When I have a footer with the field in it that allows printing of Page xx of yy where yy is the total # of pages, it doesn't print the correct total # of pages. Instead each page comes out as tho it were the last page, showing Page xx of xx.

    How can I work around this or fix it? Thanks!

    Hi,
    I had the same problem some time ago. Upgrading Word to SR-1 solved the problem, even if you already have upgraded. It is a bug in Word that causes the problem.

    Best regards

    Simple work-a-round is to:
    Tools/Options & select print tab & check 'Print reverse order' box.

    Another solution is to unselect the show/hide formating option. When you don't see the formating, the document numbering prints correctly. (Mind you, I'm using Word 2000 on Windows 2000 and don't have this problem ... Hmmmm).

    There is a bug in Word that is different in different versions (including different SRs).
