    number all pages

    I have a master doc with sub docs and have a requirement to number (page x of y) and have the header/footer show on every page. With a master/sub if the chapter ends on an odd page - the next begins on an odd page with a blank page inserted by Word before (as it should as the requirement is that each 'chapter' begin on an odd page).. is there a control in Word that will force the header/footer to appear on the 'blank' pages. A long time ago I used to use AmiPro/WordPro and there was an option to include the header/footer on blank pages. Does Word have such a control? Or is there a way to force Word to do this?

    I know that there is a way to do what you want, but don't remember it.

    Meanwhile, though, the consensus among all those offering advice on the microsoft Word newsgroups is that using the Master Document feature to edit is a sure way to destroy your document(s). It can destroy parts of your document that you are not even working on! I think John McGhie said it succinctly when he said that there are two kinds of Master Documents: Those that are corrupt and those that will be corrupt soon. See (www.addbalance.com/word/masterdocuments.htm) for information on the Master Document feature and workarounds. See <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/General/WhyMasterDocsCorrupt.htm>Why Master Documents Corrupt (http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/Genera...ocsCorrupt.htm) for more information on what goes wrong, and <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/General/RecoverMasterDocs.htm>How to Recover Master Documents</A> (http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/Genera...MasterDocs.htm) for ideas on how to salvage what you can.

    Hope this helps.

    I found the solution to your question. It is written by the same man who wrote "Why Master Documents Corrupt." I still urge you to read that.

    See <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/TblsFldsFms/InsEvnPgEndSctn.htm>Is there an automatic way to create a non-blank, even-numbered page at the end of a chapter, if the chapter would otherwise end on an odd page?</A> (www.mvps.org/word/FAQsTblsFldsFms/)

    Hope this helps.

    Re: number all pages

    Doh! Sorry chaps - sussed and works. I just didn't expect to see a 'real' page break in there. Ho hum.

    "Thanks for that link - I can use that code. Well I could use that code if I was clever enough to work out how to insert the [page break] command!

    Pressing 'Ctrl-Enter', not unsuprisingly gives me a real page break, not the code for it. So how many chickens do I need to sacrifice to get the 'proper' code in there?"

    TIA

    Hi Chris:
    It works. You just have to have faith. Yes, while you're creating it, there is a page break. It's inside a field. If you update the field (select & press F9), you will see that you can create a document that will give you a blank page when you need it (well, it says "This page intentionally blank") and won't add a page when you don't.

    Hope this helps.
