Thread: Page X of Y

    Page X of Y

    In Word 2000(V9.0.2720), with a footer in the following form:
    Page {PAGE} OF {NUMPAGES}
    In print preview, I see Page 1 of 2, Page 2 of 2.
    When I print, I get Page 1 of 1, Page 2 of 2.

    This happens both with new documents, and with old ones that contained this footer and that used to work fine even after upgrading to Word 2000.

    Detect and repair has not fixed the problem.

    What's going on? How do I fix it?

    Hi John,

    This issue was corrected in the O2K SR1 patch. There is also a SR2 patch available as well.

    Here is some information on obtaining SR1 and SR2:

    O2K SR1:

    O2K SR2:

    Cheers!

    BAM,

    It's Serve Pack 2, not SR. Be careful with that- Woody suggests caution

    This is a long-standing problem in Word. You might want to see http://www.addbalance.com/word/pagexofy.htm for some of the causes and work-arounds.

    The interim fix is to simply:
    Tools/Pptions/Print tab
    Check the 'Reverse print order' box
