Hi,

Here is a step-by step instruction for page numbering in Word 2007.
Unfortunately it is much more tedious than it was in Word 2003, but I think that I have captured all the required steps.

Remove the page break between the introduction and the body of the document.
(Cursor before first word in Body section then backspace)
From the Ribbon select 'Page Layout', then in the 'Page Setup' section, select 'Breaks'
In the drop-down list select 'Next Page' in the 'Section breaks' part of the list.

Your cursor should now be in the first page of the Body section of your document.
From the Ribbon select 'Insert', then in the 'Header & Footer' section select Footer.
Select 'Edit Footer' (near the bottom of the list)

Your cursor is now in the footer.
From the context Ribbon 'Design' tab, in the 'Navigation' section, click 'Link to Previous' to deselect that option, (the 'Same as previous' tab above the right hand side of the footer will disappear).

From the Ribbon select 'Insert' then from the 'Header & Footer' section click on 'Page Number' and click 'Current position' and select 'Simple - Plain number' design.
Select the number and from the 'Header & Footer' section, select 'Page Number' and then 'Format page numbers...'
In the dialog box that opens, in the 'Number format:' box select the Arabic numeral style.
In the 'Page numbering' section click 'Start at:' and check that it shows 1.
Click OK.

From the Ribbon, select the 'Design' tab and in the 'Navigation' section select 'Previous section'
Your cursor will now be in the section 1 footer.
From the Ribbon select 'Insert' then from the 'Header & Footer' section click on 'Page Number' and click 'Current position' and select 'Simple - Plain number' design.
Select the number and from the 'Header & Footer' section, select 'Page Number' and then 'Format page numbers...'
In the dialog box that opens, in the 'Number format:' box select the Roman numeral style.
In the 'Page numbering' section click 'Start at:' and check that it shows 1.
Click OK.

Click on any normal text to leave the footer.

You now have two sections with independent numbering.

You can select the footers again and and add tabs (and tab stops if the defaults are not suitable).
Format the font of the page numbers as required.
The section 1 footer and the section 2 footer will need to be formated separately.

If you need a Page 1 of 99 style, do this:
Go the the last page in the section, for the Body of the document this might be the last page of the document or the last page that contains the body text (perhaps before References or an Index).
From the Ribbon select 'Insert' and 'Bookmark' from the 'Links' section
In the dialog box that opens enter a name such as: "LastBodyPage"
Names must not contain spaces, but underscores are OK, e.g., "Last_Intro_Page"
Click Add.

Now open the relevant footer - in section 2 in this case.
Type "Page " and " of " around the number and then with the cursor after " of "
Select 'Insert' from the Ribbon (not from the 'Design' section).
In the 'Links' section select 'Cross-reference'
In the dialog box that opens, from the 'Reference type:' box select 'Bookmark' from the drop-down list.
In the 'Insert reference to:' box select 'Page number'
Select your bookmark (e.g., "LastBodyPage") in the 'For which bookmark:' list. (even if it's the only bookmark you must select it)
Click Insert, then Close
You now have something like "Page 1 of 99".

Hope this helps.

Regards

If you're submitting it as a printed document, why not split it into
two sections and page number each as you want?

"I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..."

Your link didn't work, so I don't know what was suggested there.

Have you tried inserting a Section Break at the page where you want to change the page numbering format?

On the first page of the new section you can choose a different numbering format and tell Word to "Start at:" 1

I tried this in Word 2003, but I'm assuming that 2007 has the same feature.

P.S. When you paste a link into a post on computing.net, don't split it into multiple lines. This site will automatically shorten what is displayed but still allow the link to be followed.

Hi,

Using 'Section Breaks' is the usual way to allow different numbering in the introductory part of the document and in the main body of the document.

The document remains as a single document, and prints as a single document.

I don't have Word 2007 on this PC so I can't walk you through it.

Basically at the end of the introductory section where you want Roman numerals to end, insert a section break using the new page option.

In the footer after the break, unlink the footer from the first section footer.

Now apply page numbering in each footer. (Don't use the global page numbering). In the first section, select the page number in the footer and format it as Roman numerals, and in the second section, in the format page numbers, select 'start at' and enter 1 and select 1,2,3 ... number format.

If your document needs Page X of Y, the standard Page X of Y will not work, because the total page number includes both sections (introduction plus main body). You can get round this by inserting a bookmark on the last page of the document, and in the footer, for the last page insert a cross reference and select the show page number option. The number of pages will now be the number shown on the last page.

Regards

Hi, I manged to track down the link:
here

This looks like the standard 'Section Break - Next Page' approach.

When I get to my other PC with Word 2007 I will do a step-by step walk-through, using this approach - it is what I suggested in response number 4 and what DerbyDad03 was suggesting in response number 3.
