    Numbering 2nd page (Win XP Pro SP-2 Word 2002)

    I apologise for what I'm sure is a really simple question. I have a document which includes several letters, page 1 of which has a top margin of 6.5 (to be printed on letterhead) and page 2 has 2.54. These alternate over about 7 pages. (I realise I could put each into a separate document and normally I would do this. However, these are merged letters which fall into the one document and it saves time to just use the one).

    My problem is this: the break occurs in the middle of a set of numbered paragraphs. If I use a page break, the numbers continue in sequence but every page has the same margin. If I insert a continuous break, the numbers insist on starting again at 1 after the break, even after clicking continue numbering. I'm tearing my hair out - and I'm sure I'm missing something really simple. <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23>

    I'd be grateful for any help.

    Thanks in advance

    If the page setups are alternating as you say, use one section with different odd and even pages and a top distance of 2.54.

    Into the odd page header, insert some returns or use paragraph spacing to push the page content down to 6.5 for the letterhead.
