    Word 2000 Page Number Problems (Word 2002 SR-2)

    Our office is converting to XP and Word 2002. Luckily, or unluckily, I still have Word 97. I am the "expert" in the group. Boy, do I feel stupid.

    The latest wrinkle is what is happening with page numbering when the "Draft" option is used in 2002. A cube mate showed me his document. The Table of Contents showed all zeros and would not update. The page number in the document, on screen, also showed zeros, but would print properly. The printed TOC showed all zeros. It works fine Word 97.

    He finally solved his problem by removing the "Draft" watermark.

    Anyone know why this is happening and how it can be fixed?

    Second weird problem this month with watermarks. They're just WordArt, right? Makes no sense...

    I have to think something else was wrong with the document. Was it created fresh or migrated from another version of Word?

    What was the watermark anchored to, the header of the document, or somewhere in the body text? I use this trick all the time by putting the Watermark in the document header. Is it possible to post a small part of the affected document. <img src=/S/compute.gif border=0 alt=compute width=40 height=20>

    Regards,

    The document was originally created in Word 97. The computer it was on was changed from NT 4.0 to XP and the office suite updated. A whole new installation from our IT people on an existing machine.

    Word 2002 uses WordArt anchored in the header. Odd thing is that my buddy sent the file to me (through Lotus Notes) and when I opened it in Word 97, it did not show a "Draft" mark in the header. I put in the Watermark manually and had no problems. I sent back that file to him (different filename) and there was no problem. It seem only to appear when the Draft feature watermark is turned on in Word 2002.
