Solved Set page numbers in footer area using Word 2007

I am creating separate documents that when printed will be put together to make a document.

The problem I am having is with a document file that is located in the middle of the booklet that has two pages. When I set the page number on the first page(page 6) the second page shows as the same number.

Is there a way to correct this and enter numbers that begin on the first page that aren't 1 and have the pages labeled in order after their number(7,8,9) using Word 2007?

As well, since I am dissecting this conundrum, is there a way to be able to manually input the page numbers so that I choose which page is labeled what?

You can manually input page page number by:

1) Click on "Insert" tab in the menu bar.

2) Click on "Footer" in the tool bar.

3) Click "Edit Footer" at bottom of footer styles menu.

Do that for that each page prior to saving or printing.

✔ Best Answer
Without testing this out - not able to just now - I think creating sections might allow you to have various parts/pages retain whatever numbering you give those relevant pages, when they were created?

Section breaks allow some degree of flexibility in terms of formatting, headers/footers, numbers etc.
