    Page numbering problem (Word 2000)

    I have an 18-page document with a page numbering problem. Although the page numbering appears to be correct in print preview, i.e., it commences on page 2 and runs consecutively through page 18 - when printed, the page numbering does not start until page 10 (where it starts numbering at "1") and continues numbering the pages "1" to the end of the document.

    There are no section breaks in the document. There is a footnote at the bottom of page 9.

    I tried copying the document to a new document, but it didn't solve the problem.

    Any suggestions will be appreciated! Thank you,

    Instead of doing a Select All-Paste into a new document, try this:

    Ctrl-End
    Ctrl-Shift-Home
    Copy
    Paste into a new document

    This will leave behind the final paragraph marker in the document, which (I'm told) can contain lots of unnecessary formatting and problems.

    I've seen this same stubborn problem in the past, and this sometimes fixes it. Sometimes removing all of the footers & section breaks then re-adding them helps. Sometimes crying really hard <img src=/S/crybaby.gif border=0 alt=crybaby width=15 height=15> and threatening to throw the computer out the window <img src=/S/meltdown.gif border=0 alt=meltdown width=15 height=15> if it doesn't start cooperating works, too.

    I hope this helps! <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23>
