    page num (Word 97)

    I have a document with 5 sections. I want each sectioned to have page numebrs reading, "page X of Y"
    I want each section to look like a seperate document.
    so if section 3 has 5 pages I want the second page of that section to say "Page 2 of 5".
    For Y I can use the field {SectionPages} but How can I do X?

    Hi marc4ucb,

    You already have the { SECTIONPAGES } field, all you need to do now is use the "Format Page Number" on the Header/Footer toolbar and change the "Start at" number to 1.

    Cheers!

    Well that looks perfect on the screen but it is printing wrong.
    The page number prints correctly but the {SectionPages} prints with the same value as the page number.
    So in Section 1 which has two pages the pages are numbered page 1 of 1 and page 2 of 2. <img src=/S/broke.gif border=0 alt=broke width=31 height=23>

    or Search from the menu for page #.

    Sorry, I can't figure out how to paste a link to that thread. I'm going to look through Help now...

    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:
