page numbering in footers


D

I'm running Word 2003 SP2.

I use page setup to check that page one of my document gets a
different footer than the other sections. I insert the traditional
page number into a footer (using numbering, not a text box) and want a
"1" to print on page two and so one.

I use the format numbering button on the footer bar, select "start
with 1" and click ok. The document snaps to the footer on page one
(blank). When I scroll back to page 2, the numbering remains
unchanged at "2". Nothing I try can make that number into a 1. I can
increase the number, though.

Same thing happens if I insert a continuous section break somewhere on
page one. I can't make a "1" appear on page 2.

Is the "Same As Previous" button engaged?
If yes, on your "New Page 1" make sure it is NOT engaged and numbering
should start anew on actual Page 2 desginated as printed Page 1.
HTH!

Either select "start with 0" and click OK, or use a section break
instead of a different first page footer as described inhttp://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Formatting/NumberingFrontMatter.htm.
