    Report numbering (word 2002)

    I want to create a report that starts with references at the beginning of the document being auto numbered with i,ii,iii etc, then a table of contents that is not numbered and finally the report body that is auto numbered 1,2,3 etc. The first page of the report body has to be page one. I can acheive this by creating seperate documents and then creating a master/sub document scenario but I was wondering if there was an easier way to achieve this in one document as it would be neater and easier to update etc.
    Thanks in advance

    Re: Report numbering (word 2002)

    If I have understood you correctly then the attached word document should be what you need.

    I started by creating three sections (using Insert > Break > Section Break > Next page)
    Then go to the footer in each section and set it to not same as previous
    Then on first Section, Insert Page Numbers > Choose i, ii, iii style numbering
    On second section make sure that the footer is blank
    On third section, Insert Page Numbers > 1, 2, 3 style, Start at 1

    Craig, unless things have changed in the last little while, the general advice is to stay away from Master Dcouments. I believe someone (don't know who) said "There are two types of Master documents, those that are corrupt and those will be corrupt." If anyone else has some more light to shed on this, then it would be nice to know. Most times when you have to break a dcoument into sections/segments, I have found that the use of Sections, as suggested, is the way to go. HTH

    Thanks guys
    and yes Ron I had heard the same thing about Master docs too....lol i tried the sectioning idea but, (now this could be me), when i numbered the first section with "i" and then left the second section blank and went to the third section i added numbering "1" and i noticed that the blank page became "1" and the third section was "2". I check to make sure that the third section was not continuing from the previous section and it is not, if i change the second section to no numbers i lose the numbers in the third section so they are linked somehow, i just can't find where????

    Re: Report numbering (word 2002)

    Click within each of the sections and select File | Page Setup...
    In the third tab there are options for
    - Having the section begin on a new page, on an odd page or on an even page
    - Having different headers/footers for the first page of the section
    - Having different headers/footers for odd and even pages
    Perhaps these settings are relevant to the behavior you see.
