I am havng a dfficult time trying to number some pages. I have an eight page

working. Please for your help.

RE: Start Page numbering from third page

Rawle:

Each section has its own header and footer content, and page number format
and starting value. You'll need to insert a section break (probably
Continuous but maybe New Page) before the third page, so that the material in
the third through eighth pages is in a section of its own.

Let's say the first two pages are then in section 1 and the third through
eighth pages are in section 2.

You can now restart the page number for section 2 at 1. Also, you can edit
the headers and footers in section 1 so that they are empty, or have no page
number in them.

By the way, I think it's best to insert the page number field inline in the
text of the header or footer, not to let Word insert a page number in a
floating frame or text box.

You can insert a page number field inline in the text using the buttons on
the Header/Footer toolbar.

Rawle:

Makes no difference. These ideas apply to Word 2007 as well. The only
difference may be the location of various commands, but there are still
sections etc.

RE: Start Page numbering from third page

Almost got it to work so I am getting there. OK, I got the third page to
start at number 1 and the next page to be number 2. The problem I developed
is that after the page that numbered 2, which was stated as section 2 I
think, it began showing section 4 and no numbers inserted. How can I get from
the tird page to the last page to be section 2 only so that the numbers flow
continuously?
