    Total number of pages in a section (Office 2000, W2000 SR-1)

    There are two ways of inserting "page number" and "total number of pages" in a document;
    one with Insert/Page numbers...
    and by using field codes: {PAGE MERGEFORMAT} of {NUMPAGES}

    But how do I get the page number AND the total number of pages in each SECTION of a document??
    I need one section numbered "i of iv" and some other sections numbered each as "1 of "the total number of the pages in that section"

    Can anyone help?

    The SECTIONPAGES field returns the number of pages in the current section.
    You can have different numbering layouts in different sections by unlinking the header or footer in a section from that in the previous section. To display numbers in lower case roman numerals, add "* roman" (without the quotes) to the field code, for example:
    Page { PAGE * roman } of { SECTIONPAGES * roman } in section { SECTION }
