  2. page numbering


    Hi sbi33. Welcome to the TenForums @sbi33

    What product are you using, sounds like Word, which year.

    Not sure what year you are using, here are instructions for 2013.

    Could I suggest you start a new document, make it simple a word on each page, say three pages long. Then in Word 2013, which would be like 2016, click on Insert along the top, then page number, then bottom of page. There should be page numbers on all pages. Is there?

    The ribbon should change to Header Footer Tools, then click Page number and then Format page number and choose start on page 2. Did this work.?

    If the above worked then there is formatting within your current doc that is restricting pages. If it didn't work then I would suggest there is something corrupt within your app.

    page numbering


    Hi Both

    I am using Word 2013.

    Did as you suggested, created four pages. First page has 2 at bottom and increasing numbers to page four which is 5.

    I have quite a few "Page Breaks," there is also a "Section Break (Next Page)" on the page before where I want the numbering to start. there are about 40 jpgs set within the body of the text.

    Switched on the Show/Hide facility can see nothing unusual.

    Therefore seems likely to be a formatting problem some where, how can I find that? Please.

    Yes, as above, I do have a Section Breaks as I want the numbering to start on page 8.

    It is a Family History book so do not want the title page, Preface, Contents etc to be numbered, Would like it to start where the story starts.

    Does the page numbering facility have a limit to the number of pages that can be numbered?

    page numbering


    trying to number pages in a doc. the first page number to start on the sixth age. Followed the Microsoft doc titled " start page numbering later in your document" It is refusing to number all the pages just attaches a number to page 1. Tried removing page number and tried again but still will not number beyond page 1?
    Why not? What do i need to do to make it work?
