Begin page numbers at 1 after the beginning of a document

Post by Qko » Mon, 21 Aug 2006 12:25:02


How do I insert page number, begin them, on my case, on page 9, and have it
begin at 1 rather than 9. I know how to make page 9 be page 9 and have
nothing before it, but I want it to be page 1.

I'm sure someone else will tell you but in Publisher it's done by inserting
a new section. Try that in Word. Seems like it should work.

Use the following field construction

{ IF { PAGE } > 8 { = { PAGE } - 8 } }

However, if you want the page numbers to appear in a table of contents, then
you will need to insert a Section Break between pages 8 and 9 and format the
pagenumbers in the Section of the document that commences with the ninth
physical page so that they start at 1. That is done by means of the Format
Page Numbers button on the Header and Footer toolbar, or by selecting Format
from the Insert>Page Numbers dialog.

If you already know how to omit a page number from the first eight pages,
you probably have already figured out that you need to insert a section
break, so the hard part is done. Now, on the Header and Footer toolbar (in
Section 2), click Format Page Number and choose Start at 1. See
