page number, total pages, section page number and total section pa



  • 1. how do i change the default page setup for word 2007
    I need to change the paragraph spacing and the font in the default so i don't have to change it everytime I'm working on a new document. please help!
  • 2. Print view is sideways
    I have a document that looks fine in Web layout view and Normal view, but when I switch to Print view it goes sideways and looks like it's formatted for landscape. It's not; it's portrait layout. I've tried different paper sizes, switching back and forth between portrait and landscape, changed margin sizes, and numerous other things... none of which worked. Anyone have a solution for me? This old-time Word user is now good and stumped. Help!
  • 3. Page Layout - Footers
    I have a document with page numbers that looks fine in the print preview (1of3, 2of3, 3of3, etc.) However, when I print it I get: page 1of1, 2of2, 3of3 etc.
  • 4. How do you leave no spacing between split tables w/o a new table?
    I am working on a catalog and on the top of each page I am splitting the table to add a title of a product but some parts have a title in the middle of the table by accident and i want to merge them back together or leave no spacing.
  • 5. how do I print in book format?
    First of all, I am using Word 2007! There does not seem to be a lot of information out there for this newest version. I'm trying to format and print a 5.5"w x 8.5"h booklet of names and addresses. I think I actually have two problems with it. I have a merge document set up to pull records from a directory database with approximately 200 names with address entries. My first problem is that when it pulls the records from the directory database, it pulls in every other record instead of every record! The records that do get pulled in look perfect on the final document. My second problem is that I have it set up to print landscape in booklet format on letter-sized paper with two pages per letter-sized paper, but I can seem to get it to print correctly. It prints in a very weird order and no amount of creative folding can get it in the correct order.

I need to add the page number {Page}, total pages (NumPages), section page 
number {Page} and total section pages {Section Pages} in one Word document. 
But it fails. When I set the section page number, then the page number change 
to the section page number.
How can I do?

To get both the page number of the total pages in the document and the page 
number in the section, you will need to bookmark the end of each section and 
use for the page number in the section a Field construction that subtracts 
the { PAGEREF bookmarkname } from the { PAGE }

{ = { PAGE } - { PAGEREF bookmarknameforbookmarkatendofprevioussection } }

Hope this helps,

Hi CR,

For the X of Y Section page numbering, you can use a field coded as:
{QUOTE{IF{PAGE}= 1 {SET Section0 0}}
"Page {={PAGE}-{REF {QUOTE Section{={SECTION}-1}}}} of {SECTIONPAGES}"}

Note: The field brace pairs (ie '{ }') for the above example are created via Ctrl-F9 - you can't simply type them or copy & paste 
them from this message.

For the X of Y Document page numbering, you can then use the standard {PAGE} & {NUMPAGES} fields.

1.section page numbers in heading and total page number in footing

In a document with different sections I want to add the number of section 
pages in the header and the total number of pages of the document in the 
footing. This seems to give a conflict. As soon as I add in the footer the 
total number of pages of the document, the pagenumber of the section in the 
header also changes to the total number of pages of the document.

2.Page numbering Sections without counting Section 1 in the total

I need to creat a file that has two sections.  Section 1 is an Abstract and 
Section 2 is the Narrative.  I have created the sections and inserted page 
numbering (x of y) in the footer of section 2.  The Narrative is to be no 
longer than 20 pages.

The Abstract Section 1 no footer at all, but on the status line it will 
say Sec 1, 1/20.

Narrative Section 2 should have footer that says 1 of 20, etc.  It does 
that just fine But when you manually count the actual pages, there are 19 
in the Narrative. it counting the Abstract also.  On the first page of 
the Narrative the status line reads Sec 2, 2/20

How can I make it quit counting the Abstract in the total number of pages?

3.Total pages within a section, page number in footer

I have Word documents that contain a converpage and several content pages.

For example a 5 page document has 1 cover page and 4 content pages.
I want the footers on the content pages to say  'Page 1 of 4', '2 of 4', '3
of 4' and '4 of 4'

I have tried using page number zero on the first page as well as defining a
section starting on the second page but get page numbers '1 of 5' etc.
Still counts the first page in the total number of pages



4.Printing total number of pages in a section

In Word, many of the people I support want to have the first page excluded 
from the total count of pages, yet have a page 1 of 5 type pagination, with 1 
being the second page of the document.

You can do that by adding a section break between the non-numbered pages and 
the numbered pages.  There should be no more than one section in the numbered 
pages.  You can then insert a field that is the total number of pages in the 
section (insert, field, numbering, sectionpages).

Here is a problem that happens with that in Word 2003:  When printing, you 
can get page 1 of 1, 2 of 2, 3 of 3.  The problem happens because Word 2003 
seems to be able to print before the document has fully evaluated how many 
pages there are, so it prints the value it has calculated at that point.  

The solution, at this point, is to WAIT until the pagination has been 
established (going into print preview helps that.)

Has anyone else run into this?
