    Resetting running page numbers in Appendices

    Hi all - I work in Word 2000 SR-1

    Our company standard is that the body of the document must have running page numbers in regular style (1, 2 etc.) running to some larger number (e.g. 115) <<irrespective of the chapter number>>

    Appendix page numbers must follow the numbering scheme A.1, A.2, B.1, etc. The page number for each appendix must start from A.1, B.1 to B.7, etc., running to A.16, B.7, etc.

    I struggled through several variations of styles, but could get this to work well. The running number of pages does not seem to reset, and the Appendix page numbers don't want to show A, B, rather continuing from the last chapter in the body of the doc 6.1, etc.

    Ideally one would like to have appendix numbers appear correctly in the footer and also in the automatically formed TOC.

    It must be possible to achieve, even if one has to use VBA. Can anybody please give me some pointers on how to do this, as I am new to Word VBA? Maybe a URL to some documentation or samples?

    thanks

    I don't know if what we used to do is something totally inadvisable or not, so FWIW:

    We used heading levels 7 - 9 for three appendix levels, that look like
    Appendix A
    A.1
    A.1.1
    We have them look like that in the TOC, and the page numbers are A-1 through A-whatever, B-1 etc. We set up the heading7 style to say Appendix A. , and the heading8 style to have the A.1. In the page numbers, when the appendices start, you have to redefine the page numbers, to tell it that the chapter number starts with style heading7.

    We stopped using the prefix when some posting suggested that it was just a lot of extra work, and since the format is not that important for our documents, it finally got through to me that we could stop fiddling with those things if we didn't use them.

    See TOC numbering & lettering for something similar.

    Thanks for posting that. I just wrote LoungeAdmin about having screwed up this thread - KT had sent a reply with that reference, and then sent a link to the same note, and then when I posted my reply, the earlier replies went missing.

    I removed those messages because they were confused and misleading. I replaced them all with the new message you just read.
