On my PC I am running W98 and Office 97 Professional. I have a 5-page Word document and am trying to print Page 1 of 5 (and so on) in the Footer of each page. If I use the Insert AutoText button on the Footer toolbar and select Page X of Y, it outputs Page 1 of 1, then 2 of 1 …….....…5 of 1
Alternatively typing the word Page then clicking the 'Insert Page Number' button, typing 'of' then clicking the 'Insert Number of Pages' button appears to produce the correct result, but if the document is saved then re-opened, I am back to Page 1 of 1, Page 2 of 1 etc.
I seem to recall reading some time ago that there is a "bug" in the page numbering feature of Word. Can anyone say if this is a "known issue" and if so is there any fix or workaround? Or any other suggestions please?
