    Dear all,

    is there any possibility in word to edit the field code of
    the { page } field manually, e.g. to add switches that
    influence formatting or the way counting starts? Or is the
    only possible way to do this via the Insert/page no. menu?

    Regards,
    Georg

    You can add switches to the page field to determine the type of numbering
    (see the insert field dialog). You can also use the field in calculations to
    set a particular number, and you can apply formatting directly to the field.

    eg {= ({Page} + 3) \* charformat \* alphabetic }
