    Page #s in Footer (Word 2000/Win98)

    I have a 40 page Word document. I inserted a footer to include a page # that would display Page #X of X. In the edit mode it # of pages shows correctly ... in the print preview it also shows correctly but when it prints it prints Page 2 of 2 ... page 3 of 3 ... page 4 of 4 etc. Any ideas ... I don't know where else to look to resolve this one.

    In Word 97 do the following:

    1. Click on Tools, Options.
    2. Make sure there is nothing in Background printing, meaning make sure it is not selected. This is an acknowledged bug in Word.
    3. Click on OK.

    Print your document.

    This works for me. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    There is a bug in Word that is different in different versions (including different SRs).
    See or <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/AppErrors/PageXofY.htm>http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/AppErrors/PageXofY.htm for information on Page X of Y problems. You may also want to take a look at:

    Thanks for all the help ... I guess I need to go out and get the service release ... I tried printing in reverse and it does appear to work. I'm reluctant to bother with the SR because more than likely we'll be upgrading to XP soon. Big thanks for all the expertise found here.
