    TOC page number format

    Word 2000, a long document rife with section breaks, tables, abstracts, etc. One area (several sections) uses small Roman numerals for page numbering. The remainder of the document uses standard numbering. The last page of the Roman numeral-numbered pages is six (vi) and it appears that way (vi) on the page. However in the Table of Contents, it appears as a 6, even though all other entries within the roman numeral area appear with roman numerals.

    Thank you for your ideas.

    Is there a question here? The reason I ask is because I have read somewhere never to assume.... <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Sorry! We want the table of contents to display Roman numerals when referring to those pages so numbered. It would be nice to understand why it is not, but it's more important to fix than understand, if I must choose.

    Is your Section Break at the end of the section with Roman numbering a Continuous Section Break or a (some-type-of)Next Page Section Break?

    Re: TOC page number format

    Evidently the writer (who called me) has been fighting this. The section is terminated with a continuous section break followed by a next page section break. I tried deleting the continuous break and re-calculating the TOC but it didn't change anything. I hate to just start flailing around, because I do not understand what's going on.

    Thanks again

    Re: TOC page number format

    If I understand this correctly, you have:

    <pre>==================Section Break (Continuous)==================</pre>


    Maybe a paragraph mark here????

    Followed by

    <pre>==================Section Break (Next Page)==================
    </pre>


    Is this correct?

    If so, then place your cursor between the two section breaks, in the blank paragraph, if there is one. Just make sure that it is after the Continuous Break and before the Next Page Section Break.

    (Be aware, that I have Word 97 at my fingertips right now, so the commands may be a little different.) Now go to Insert, Page Numbers. Click on the Format button, check the format listed. Is it small Roman? If not, change to small Roman. Click OK on that button, then click Close. Do not click OK here.

    Let me know how that turned out.

    Re: TOC page number format

    Your assumption is mostly correct, but the Continuous section break immediately precedes the Next page section break. I inserted a paragraph number, place the cursor immediately left of the paragraph mark, went to Insert, Page Numbers, Format . . . and the format is already small Roman numerals. I changed it and changed it back. Selected TOC and [F9], update entire table. Table of Contents is unchanged.

    Re: TOC page number format

    I gave the example in my previous of the Continuous preceding the Next Page (unless I misunderstand the word "precede"). Doesn't "precede" mean "come before"?

    If so, doesn't my example have the Continuous section break preceding the Next Page?

    If by your comment you mean there is nothing between them, they are smack up against each other, then that is different.

    If that is the case, highlight the bottom section break and do what the previous post stated.

    Re: TOC page number format

    Yes, they were smack up against each other. However, thanks to your homing in on the breaks being the problem, I did get it fixed. The problem was not exactly where you said, but in a double-break before this page: Next page and adjacent continuous breaks. Removing the redundant breaks, going into the format of page numbers (and this time they format WAS incorrect), then recalculating the TOC seems to work.

    Thanks so much
