I am using Word97 SR2 on both WindowsXP Home and Pro.(Home and Office)Both original instalations not upgrades.
When I enter in the footer from the autotext "Page X of Y" it shows correctly.
After I save and reopen instead of
Page 1 of 3 it shows Page 1 of 1
Page 2 of 3 it shows Page 2 of 1
Page 3 of 3 it shows Page 3 of 1

I have found that this solution works for me.

Open Word and select Options from the Tools menu. Select the Save tab and disable the "Allow background saves" option. Select the "Page X of Y" in your footer and press the F9 key to update it. Save your document and when you reopen it your problem should have gone away.
