    Page numbers start at zero (Word 2002 SP2)

    Has anyone met this before?

    I have created a simple new document template with Page X of Y numbering in the footer along with some document management information. It has a header and is only one section. Before using the template, it is only one page in size.

    The page numbering insists on starting from 0 (zero). I have tried Format Page Numbers from the Insert Page Numbers menu and cannot get the numbering to start at 1 with either option. The document details in the Status Bar also show Page 0 Sec 1 1/1.

    For some reason this template thinks its page numbering starts at zero and will not take instruction to the contrary.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Cheers

    Geoff

    Have you tried setting the starting page number to something completely different, e.g. 37, in the Format Page Numbers dialog? What happens then?

    You said you are using document management information. Is there are add-in that might be affecting the numbering? If you start Word from Start Menu/Run & type
    winword.exe /a
    & then open the document, does it happen?

    That is very strange - having a .wmf logo in the header shouldn't cause page numbering to go haywire.

    If you like, you can post a copy of the template (with dummy text where necessary), but it is quite possible that we won't be able to find a satisfying explanation. Anyway, I'm glad you found a workaround.
