As a result, if I have two cross-references in the same place, they show up looking as a cross-reference to endnote/footnote 23, rather than as cross-references to endnotes/footnotes 2,3 as it should. How do I fix this??

Printing Odd-Numbered Pages

Postby G.G. Biggar, Jr. » Mon, 17 Nov 2003 13:05:06 GMT

I have a thirty-page document that begins with a cover page, followed by
several roman-numeral pages (i,ii, etc.) and finally the main body of the
text, beginning at page one (1,2,3, etc.).  I am using Word 2000 on a
Windows 2000 Pro platform.

When I attempt to print pages from the main body of the text (i.e., those
pages numbered 1-25), using the "Page:" option -- whereby you type in the
page number(s) that you wish printed-- sometimes I get the page that I
specified, sometimes I get that page number, less the number of introductory
pages, including the cover page.  In other words, if I specify page 25, I
may get page 21, since there are four introductory pages.

The long way around this is to repeatedly use the Print Current Page option.
I'd like to print odd pages, then reverse the pages and print even-numbered
pages -- without printing the introductory pages.  Is there an easy way to
accomplish this?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

You have to include the section number. See the section "Print specific
pages and sections" in the "Print a document" Help topic.

Greetings, Fairhope --

It appears that my HP printer (Laserjet 5P) does not like the idea.  When I
give the printer the command (under Print Pages) to print: "p1s3,p3s3", or
even "p1s3-p3s3" (quotations omitted, of course), it only prints the first
page in the range.  Perhaps the spacing of my printing command is not

This should work (assuming that the referenced sections have pages with
those numbers). I can't explain why it doesn't. Try posting in
microsoft.public.word.printingfonts; perhaps someone there will have a
better idea.

2.No blank page number when using Odd Page Section number

Using Word 2002:

I'm wrestling with a page number missing doing an Odd Page Section. 

I have main document text ending on page 21. I have an Appendix that I 
want to start on the next odd page,page 23, so I insert an Odd Page 
Section Break at the beginning of the Appendix first page. Word then 
shows page 21 numbered okay, then inserts a blank page with no page 
number then has the Appendix starting on numbered page 23. So the odd 
page placement for the Appendix worked, except Word didn't number page 
22. I would appear that it doesn't include the footer on the inserted 
blank page.

When I read the explanation for an odd Section Break in Special Edition 
Using Word 2002 it says, "As Odd Page Section break starts the new 
section on the next odd-numbered page. If the section break falls on an 
odd numbered page (which in my case it does), Word leaves the next 
even-numbered page blank (which it does). My problem here is that Word 
does leave the next page entirely blank and does not include the page 
number. For the blank page to be numbered I inserted a page break ahead 
of the Odd Section break. This sort of defeats the whole purpose and 
doesn't seem right. Might be doing something wrong or have a

If not I'd appreciate your help.
