Thanks everyone for replying :)
The Orcale, i downloaded PDF-Xchange Viewer & I can add page numbers via Tools > comment & markup tools but that way I will have to insert a page number for each single page & that will take a lot of time. Isn't there someway I can simply insert a range of page numbers in the document?

Not unless whoever created the document put them there. Adobe Reader is just that, a reader. It does not allow the modifcation of a ducument in any way.

As Stuart stated it is simply a reader. However, the author can grant different rights. For instance you can fill out and print IRS forms even though you only have Reader.

So you can try saving the document to disk and then try to import into your word processing program. This sometimes works and sometimes not. If you have a scanner you can print and then scan using OCR.

There are two ideas.

Or here's another idea:

Grab PDFCreator (which acts as a printer) from Sourceforge (Google it). Print the PDF from Adobe to PDFCreator, adding the page numbers...

Then print to your regular printer...

Not sure if it'd work (never tried it), but would be worth a try anyway. (likely) The worst thing that would happen is you'd get a utility to create your own PDF's...

nuke Adobe, get PDF-Xchange Viewer and add whatever you want to any PDF.

Import the document into a word processing program and you can automate the process. The trick is to find a program that can import PDF files. I think Word 2007 can do that but of course is not free. Maybe open office can import PDF files.

Try posting in the office forum for an answer.
