    Place Field Codes

    In following directions from MS Product Support Q212313, I am directed to "Place field codes" into my Word document. The directions steps are given in excruciating detail EXCEPT for exactly how to place these field codes, which I think are custom fields in order to add a second page numbering scheme to my complex document.
    Does anyone know how this is to be accomplished? I am an experienced (13 years) Word user on both the Mac and PC, but am stumped on this one. THANK YOU!

    <P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1>Edited by DougKlippert on 01/04/17 02:13.</FONT></P>To roll your own field codes, use Ctrl+F9 to put the brackets {} on the page. Then enter the code from the KB article between the brackets. The other way is to use Insert>Field. Alt+F9 will toggle the field code off and on so you can see them.
    (geofrichardson's right I corrected my message to avoid confusion. Thanks)
