    chapter pagination (Word 2000)

    I have a biography with 73 chapters. Endnotes are used with each chapter. Using "continuous" section breaks followed by a hard page break at the end of each chapter, I can create endnotes which renumber for each chapter. However, the pagination is off -- it restarts each chapter at 1 to x instead of a continuous pagination. Any solution so that the endnotes continue to renumber at the end of each section (chapter), but the pages run 1 to 673 like they should?

    Are you saving each chapter as a different document, all in one document or are you using master documents?

    It is one big document. Not a master document with separate chapters.

    Re: chapter pagination (Word 2000)

    Well, if you have it as one big document, then I highly suggest either breaking it up into multiple documents (not master docs), or keeping multiple backup copies. I think if you leave your document all one file, you may be headed for major file corruption. If you do this, you can use seq. field codes to handle pagination and the like.
    However, If you do keep the document in one file, then I have a few other things I recommend. First, why are you using a continous section break followed by a manual page break instead of a next page section break? I've always heard that continuous section breaks are not really great to use, and should be avoided whenever possible.
    Second, if you want to have your page numbering continue then all you should need to do is view the footer for each section and make sure that same as previous is turned on. This will continue the numbering from the previous section.

    Following on this suggestion, I believe someone has posted a macro that works through the document resetting the page numbers to be continuous from the previous section. Not sure if it was here or on the VB/VBA board.
