    Page Numbering (Word 2002 SP3)

    Is there some way to have page numbers appear on some pages and not on others in a 300 page document? I've tried the Header/Footer and Page Numbering options and both number the entire document, not just the certain sections that need it.

    Thanks.

    Is there some reliable way to identify the pages that shouldn't have numbers?

    The two approaches you could try are
    <UL><LI>Creating section breaks before and after each part of the document with unnumbered pages
    <LI>Using an { IF } field to suppress the page numbers when some particular condition is true[/list]Which of these would work bests depends on what pages need to be blank.

    Re: Page Numbering (Word 2002 SP3)

    I've got the document separated into 5 sections. Sections 2 through 4 need numbering so I thought I could just go in and do the usual, View/Header and Footer, do the setup for 'This point forward' etc. This is not working and I don't know why, it just keeps on either numbering the entire document or not numbering at all....

    The Header and Footer toolbar has a button for "Same as Previous". By default, this is On. You must turn it off for sections 2 and 5. That way, sections 2 through 4 can have different settings from section 1 and section 5. As long as the "Same as Previous" button is On, numbering will affect the entire document.

    Thank you. I'll attempt that! For everyone else, I found this article on the MVPS.org site that might help - http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Numbering/PageNumbering.htm
