    Default Inserting page numbers in MS Word 2007

    I have a 5 page MS Word 2007 document. The 1st page is a cover page the 2nd page is the table of contents.

    I want to insert the page number from page 3 starting with the number 1.

    I have followed the instructions on the Microsoft Office on-line help pages but have not been able to get this done.


    Can anyone give me a hand with this one please?

    Thanks,

    Did you look here, and check under the 'Control where page numbering starts' section?

    Yes, that's exactly the page I went to but it didn't work.

    I'll try again, though.

    Hi, I think you will need to insert a section break as Word uses page numbers and formatting applicable to whole sections.

    Move cursor to the bottom of page 2 (ie after any text) and select Page Layout > Breaks > Section Break (Next Page). You now have a section break to separate pages 1 & 2 from the rest of the document.

    Now move cursor to anywhere on page 3 so your in the 2nd section and select Insert > Page Number and then choose bottom of page or where ever you want the page numbers. You now have this starting at number 3 by default so to change this to 1 select Insert > Page Number > Format Page Numbers > Start At : 1.

    regards,
    Graham

    The other option is to tick the box which says "Different First Page" under the "Header and Footer Tools" tab when you are editing the footer.
