Summing multiple fields on a form

Ive created a document and want to add the filename path and the page number
to the footer. For example,

Path: desktop/copies page 1 of 3

Can anyone tell me how to do this. When I look at the footer options, the
page number is a separate icon.



Doug Robbins - Word MVP

Use the Quick Parts pulldown in the Insert section of the Header & Footer
Tools Design tab of the ribbon

Or where you want the path filename to appear, press Ctrl+F9 to insert a
pair of Field delimiters { } and inside them type

{ Filename \p }

Where you want the page numbers to appear, use

page { page } of { numpages }

Use Alt+F9 to toggle off the display of the field codes and F9 to update the
fields if necessary.

Hope this helps.

Please reply to the newsgroup unless you wish to avail yourself of my

I've asked this question at least 4 times. Never got an answer that worked
(or I understood). But in anycase, I tried it and it worked. Thanks again!
