    Page numbers not printing (word97/sr2)

    Hello, again --

    Have a client breathing down my neck, of course.

    Inserted page numbering via Insert/Page numbers. The numbers show in Page Outline but not in Print Preview and they do not print.

    There are no sections. It's straight 16 pp of text. Am flummoxed. Any takers to unconfuse me??

    Ta, as always. ACM

    I do not have background printing on.

    Excluding white or light colored numbers is your user printing to an inkjet and is the footer set too low so the page number fall into the unprintable border area?

    After your user has tried using headers/footers for page numbering he/she will probably stop using Insert => Page Number.

    If you instead use View => Headers and Footers... it will switch you to the header in Print (Page) View. You can easily go to the footer using the Header/Footer toolbar or by scrolling. The Header/Footer Toolbar pops up and lets you insert the page numbering fields (without the frame). You can control the options for formatting from that toolbar as well. When you click "Close" on the toolbar (the button not the little x box) it will return you to Normal View if you started in Normal View.
    You may want to refer your user to Bill Coan's excellent article on <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/Numbering/PageNumbering.htm> Page Numbering</A> on the MVP website. Of course, your client probably doesn't want to learn anything new.

    Hope this helps.

    Yup, footer was too low. Thanks so much for reminding me to check that out.
