    Page numbers usually only become discontinuous when you reach a section break. This is hard to detect in Print Layout view. Change to Normal view and see whether you can find a section break. It might be there for a good reason, so I wouldn't just delete it. Instead, if you click in the later section, open a header or footer, and click the Format Page Number button on the Header/Footer toolbar, you can check whether it is hardcoded to start at page 163 and, if so, you can change it back to continue from the previous page. Does that work?
