    Page Numbers (2000)

    I know this should be simple. I created a doc with 202 pages and the 3rd page is the ones that starts with information, all I want to do is start numbering page 3 with page numbers, I want it (page 3) to be page 1, so then page 202 would be 200. Thanks

    Hi,

    I would put a section break at the end of Page 2 and then you can set the page numbering for Section 2 to start numbering at Page 1.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Trent:
    1. You will need to put a Next page section break at the end of the second page (Insert Menu/Break/Next page section break).
    2. On the 3rd page, go into View/Header & Footer & click the button on the Header/Footer toolbar that says "same as previous". This will disconncect the section 2 header/footer from the previous section.
    3. In the section section header or footer, place the cursor & press Ctrl+F9 to insert field braces & type the following field so it looks like this:

    {={page} - 2}

    Note that each set of {} are entered with Ctrl+F9. You cannot type them.
    Cheers,

    I like your way better than a formula. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>.
