Page Numbering Problem

  SABRE 09:35 28 Aug 2003

Using MS Word (footer) and if I number my pages in print preview all looks OK i.e. Page 1 of 2, 2 of 20 etc. Problem is when I print the document, it prints as Page 1 of 1, Page 2 of 2 etc. Any ideas?

Which version of Word are you using?

In Word XP (and I think previous versions) you need to select VIEW>HEADER FOOTER and then select the footer. From the floating toolbar that appears click the button that says insert autotext then select HEADER FOOTER> PAGE X OF Y.

Is this what you have been doing?

Yes Taff36, this is what I have been doing. The odd thing is that in print preview all looks OK i.e. 1 of 3, 2 of 3 etc. It is only when printing that it prints 1 of 1, 2 of 2 etc. Could it be something in the printer default settings? (Epson Stylus Colour C80).

I always use "Page Numbers" from the "Insert" dropdown menu.

I dont think page numbers from the insert dropdown menu gives you the opportunity to display as 'page 1 of 20' etc.

This is a known bug in later versions of Word.

Working form (vague) memory, the way to make it that it prints 'backwards' i.e. last page first. This is an option that you can set in print options.

Otherwise, do a google search on Word page numbering - as I said, it is a known bug.

Think you have answered the problem. Will try the various fixes.

This is a known problem with Word. Have a look at my thread click here and follow through the link given by jazzypop which first goes to Charles Kenyon's site and then scroll down to the various links he gives, including the Microsoft Knowledge-base. These give both downloads and workarounds for the problem.
