I have come to the conclusion that there must be a problem with my installed Word 2007 program. I just can NOT get the page numbering to work. I have gone to the first page of Chapter 1 in my large document and inserted a page number in the footer, using the ribbon and the 'insert' option. But there are no page numbers on subsequent pages.
Has anyone any more ideas? I am almost sure that the section and page breaks are set up correcty.
