    Re: Headers and Footers (Word XP)

    The title page and outline page (sections 1 and 2) are easy: don't create headers for them.

    Click in the third section, then File/Page Setup... In the last tab, check First Page different, and apply it to "From This Point".
    Click OK to close the Page Setup dialog.

    Move to the second page of the third section
    Select View/Header and Footer. Unlink the header from the previous one. You can probably insert the section name as a cross-reference, otherwise just type it. Switch to the footer, and unlink it from the previous one. Select Insert/Page Numbers..., click Format..., and specify that page numbering starts anew in this section at page 1. Click OK to get back to the Page Numbers dialog, click OK. Delete the text box with the page number (!) Type Page followed by a space, then use the toolbar to insert the page number. Next, type " of " and press Ctrl+F9 to insert field braces { }. Type = and press Ctrl+F9 again. Type NUMPAGES within the inner braces, and -2 after the inner closing brace. It should look like { = { NUMPAGES } -2 }. Right click and select Toggle Field Codes. Press F9 to update.

    This should get you on your way. Post back if you need more help.

    Re: Headers and Footers (Word XP)

    Hi Bob:
    Each section can have up to 3 separate headers: a first page header, an odd page, & an even head. Just go to each section & then go to File/PageSetup/Layout tab & you can check the box for different first page header. Then you can leave these blank or not. In each section, you will go into the header/footer toolbar & click "same as previous" button to disconnect the headers from the previous section.

    If your first page is actually page 3, but you want to start with one, use this formula, where the {} are inserted with Ctrl+F9:

    {={page}-2} of {numpages}

    If you want the number of pages to not count the first 2 pages, then use:

    {={page}-2} of {={numpages}-2}
    Cheers,

    To insert the section name you should define a style that is only used for section names (Heading 1 may be suitable) and then include { Styleref "Heading 1" } in the headers - you insert the Styleref field using Control-F9 or the Insert Field menu.
