Page Number Format (Ms Word 2007)

My friend wants to have different page-number formats in one document:

– No page number for the cover

– Table of Content with page number format: i, ii, iii, …

– then starting at Section 1, page number format is: 1,2,3,…

How to do that?
—————–

Easy….basically what you need is just Break > ‘Next Page’ (in Page Layout tab…Not the ‘page break’!)

1. put the Break on
– the bottom of the cover page
– on the end of the Table of Content pages

2. put the page number on the beginning page of Table of Content
‘Insert’ tab > “Header & Footer” group > ‘Page Number’ icon

Define the ‘format page number‘s (under Page number icon)..choose Number Format: i, ii, iii, …

3. put the page number on the beginning page of the Section 1
‘Insert’ tab > “Header & Footer” group > ‘Page Number’ icon

Define the ‘format page number‘s (under Page number icon)..choose Number Format: 1, 2, 3, …

4. Now Update your Table of Content to make the page numbers are updated

‘Reference’ Tab > “Table of Contents” group > ‘Update Table’

Done! (if it doesn’t work, remember you need to deactive “Link to previous” button in Navigation group to make a footer not connected with previous footer!!)

  1. If I have the ‘different first page’ box checked but the document insists on numbering the first page anyway, how do I correct it? The issue is with only one document and not the others.

    • you just need to delete the number on the first page and it will not effect on the other pages since you have checked the ‘different first page’

      alternatively, you can put “Break” on the first page as I explained above
