    wierd page # in last section (03 SP2)

    I have a document with 12 sections. Each section is intended to have pages numbered "page X of Y" seperately as if each section were a seperate document. So Section 12 which has 6 pages should be numbered "page 1 of 6", Page 2 of 6"..."Page 6 of 6". However in section 12 and only in this section the page numbers continue from section 11 and the section pages are wierd. The first page says "Page 4 of 7". And the last page in this section says "Page 10 of 7"
    HELP PLEASE <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23>

    Hi marc,

    Your description sounds like you forgot to unlink the footers and reset the page numbering to start at 1 for the affected section.

    Nope! Header Footer toolbar indicates footer is not linked. And the footer does not say "Same as Previous". Section Break is set for "Next Page".

    Click anywhere in the last section.
    Select Insert | Page Numbers...
    Click Format...
    Make sure that it's set to "Start at" 1, not to "Continue from previous section".
    Click OK to close the Format page number dialog.
    Click Close (*not* OK) to close the Insert page numbers dialog.

    OK, but did you reset the page numbering to start at 1 for the affected section?

    I did not know how to reset. But I think the procedure that Hans posted is the procedure to reset. That worked. Thank you
