    extended page numbering in TOC (03)

    I have a client who has a document that includes an executive summary. He wants to number the pages in that section as ES-1, ES-2..., while keeping normal numbering in the rest of the document. He also wants this page numbering to show up in the TOC. Is there any automated way to do this?

    Thanks

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by jscher2000 on 02-Nov-06 13:34. )</P>Whoops, this probably doesn't fix your TOC. Hopefully someone with more TOC savvy and help with that.

    I know there are complete write-ups on this, but in brief...

    Each section can have its own numbering. If you insert a section break (Insert>Break>Next Page) between the TOC and Exec Summ, and between the Exec Summ and main body, you can format the page numbers differently in each section.

    First step is to set each to start from the correct number (usually, 1). Easiest is to view the footer for each section and click the Format Page Number button (the one with a # sign and a hand grabbing for it).

    While you're in the Exec Summ footer, uncheck "Same As Previous" and then you can add the ES- before the page numbers for that section. When you get to the main body, uncheck "Same As Previous" and delete the ES-.

    Good to go?

    I wondered if we could somehow get a chapter number of EC, but I couldn't find a sensible way to do so. (I could have done EE, or CC).

    Re: extended page numbering in TOC (03)

    Thanks for the info. This works great for the footers, which is as far as my client got. But as you say, it doesn't help the TOC. For now, he's manually entering the ES- into the appropriate TOC lines, but I would like to give him a "real" solution (you know, customer service and all that <img src=/S/angel.gif border=0 alt=angel width=15 height=21> ). Any ideas out there?

    Are you saying you could get it to use EE-n for page numbers and have that same format show up in the TOC? How would you do that?

    In this sample document, Heading 1 is formatted as a numbered heading, with numbering starting at EE. The numbers have then been formatted in a hidden font so they don't show in the body of the document.

    I'm wondering if anyone has any further input on this particular issue. It's something I and my coworkers have been dealing with for awhile now and we've just had to improvise by manually typing the chapter numbers into the TOC.

    In our case the chapter number might be "ES" (Executive Summary) or it might be something like "4A", "4B", etc.

    I just can't think of any way to futz with either the page number field or Heading 1 (chapter no.) field to get the numbering the way we want so that it will auto-generate into the TOC.

    Edit: We're on Word 2000 at the moment but we're switching to 2007 soon, in case it matters.
