    Page Numbering (2000)

    I have a 12 page document, and an exhibit that is to be attached in the same word document. What I want to do is begin numbering the document on page 2, and end on the last page (i. e., page 12, before the exhibit), and not number the exhibit. How do I do it?
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    At the end of the existing document, insert a section break (Insert | Break..., click Next Page, OK).
    Then insert the exhibit. Depending on the styles in the original document and exhibit, this may affect the formatting of the document.
    With the insertion point somewhere in the exhibit, select View | Header and Footer.
    If you want page numbers in the footer for the first part of the document, click the "Switch between Header and Footer" button to move to the footer.
    Click the "Same as Previous" button so that it is no longer "down"; this unlinks the header or footer of the second section from that in the first section.
    Click the "Show Previous" button to move to the header or footer of the first section.
    Click the "Insert Page Number" button; insert one or two tabs before it if you want it centered or right-aligned.
    Select Insert | Page Numbers...
    Click "Format..."
    Click "Start at" and change the starting number to 2.
    Click "OK" to close the Page Number Format dialog.
    Don't click "OK", but "Close" to close the Page Numbers dialog.
    Click "Close" in the Header and Footer toolbar.

    Hi Jeff,

    Another way to skin the cat: Insert the following compound field as the page footer-
    {IF{=OR({PAGE}={NUMPAGES},{PAGE}=1)}= 1 "" {={PAGE}-1}}

    Cheers

    Macropod,

    Do you have some way to know that the exhibit is no longer than a single page? Or have I misunderstood your field code?

    Hi Stuart,

    From the description of the problem, I took it to mean that the exhibit was a single page at the end of the document.

    Re: Page Numbering (2000)

    Hi Jeff,

    You'd put it in the page footer (or header if you prefer), both of which can be accessed from the menu via View|Header and Footer.

    Cheers
    PS: The braces (but not the brackets) are input as pairs using the Ctrl-F9 key combination. If you want to work from a copy of the formula I posted, you might find this easiest to do by working from the inside out (eg start by selecting any 'PAGE' string and pressing Ctrl-F9, then delete the corresponding braces that I'd typed).
    Cheers,

    Jeff:

    I've looked at your file and have been able to produce the result you want, so here goes description of my solution:

    Move to the footer on page 2 (you've set up the document to have a "Different first page", so you are already started in the right direction).
    Now, get your cursor where you want the page number (e.g. Left, Center or Right).
    Click on the Add page number button--this should give you a "2".
    Now, click on the SHow Next button to take you to the next section (your document has a several).
    Click on the Same as Previous button and say Yes--this will give you the same layout as Page 2, with the page number where you want it and with the right number.
    Do the same thing for each section until you reach the end (page 12).
    Close the Header and Footer tool bar.
    At the end of Page 12, insert a Section Break, Next page.
    Move to the footer of page 13, unclick the Same as previous button and delete the page number.
    Insert your exhibit (it doesn't matter how many pages long it is, none of them will have page numbers).

    Hope this is what you are looking for.

    Re: Page Numbering (2000)

    Seems to work fine. However, how do I get back to the style of "Page X of Y", where Y is the total number of pages in the document, excluding the exhibit?
    Thanks.

    Hi Jeff,

    Change the field from
    {IF{=OR({PAGE}={NUMPAGES},{PAGE}=1)}= 1 "" <font color=red>{={PAGE}-1}</font color=red>}
    to
    {IF{=OR({PAGE}={NUMPAGES},{PAGE}=1)}= 1 "" <font color=red>"Page {={PAGE}-1} of {={NUMPAGES}-1}"</font color=red>}
    This will give you a display in the form of <font color=red>Page X of Y</font color=red>, excluding the exhibit page from the count.

    Cheers

    Re: Page Numbering (2000)

    How are you editing the "field"? When I open the footer, it doesn't show any any code to edit!

    Re: Page Numbering (2000)

    Hi Jeff,

    Select an instance of the field that is displaying the page number, then press Shift-F9 to expose its coding. Then modify using the approach I outlined in <post#= 319765>post 319765</post#>.
