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
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.
