    Page Numbering (Word 2000)

    I want to insert page numbers on a document I have created. I don't want any numbers on pages one or two. I want page three of the document to be numbered page 1 and all pages thereafter numbered consecutively 2, 3, 4, etc. Is this possible to do? How

    Pam:

    Yes, this is possible. To achieve this ,do the following:

    1. At the end of physical page 2 insert a section break, next page.
    2. On physical page three, view header/footer and switch to the footer.
    3. On the Header/Footer tool bar unclick the Same as Previous button.
    4. Add the page number via the Insert Page Number button. Adjust page number alignment as needed.
    5. Click the Page Format Button and Start at "1".

    This should solve your problem.

    Insert a section break (next page) at the end of page 2.
    Click somewhere before the section break, then select View Header and Footer.
    Switch to the footer.
    Make sure that there is no page number in the footer (section 1).
    Click the button to go to the next footer (section 2).
    Unselect the button that links the footer of section 2 to that of the previous section.
    Position the insertion point where you want the page number.
    Click the Insert Page Number button (#). It will say 3 now.
    Select Insert | Page Numbers...
    Click the Format... button.
    Click Start At, the box beside it should display 1 now.
    Click OK to close the Format dialog.
    Don't click OK to close the Page Numbers dialog, click Close instead.
