Page Numbering

Guest

I am trying to remove the page numbering from only the last few pages of my
document in Word. Each time I try to remove it from my footer I remove the
page numbering from all of the pages. Is there any easy way to suppress page
numbering from just one page?

Thanks.

One page or "the last few pages"? If just the last, it can be done most
efficiently with a conditional field. If several pages, then you probably
need to insert a section, break, unlink the footer in the last section from
the previous one, and delete the page number from the last-section footer.

See http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Formatting/NumberingFrontMatter.htm for a
discussion of this type of numbering.

Thanks so much Suzanne. I'm used to working with WordPerfect and I'm totally
lost when it comes to Word. Could you tell me how to remove the page
numbering from the last page only?

With a conditional field:

{ IF { PAGE } < { NUMPAGES } "Text you want in the footer on all but the
last page" }

Each pair of field delimiters (the things that look like braces but can't be
entered from the keyboard) must be inserted using Ctrl+F9 (though you can
use the appropriate buttons on the Header and Footer toolbar to insert the
PAGE and NUMPAGES fields). The material between the quotes can be pasted in;
it's just your entire footer, which can contain graphics, tables,
etc.--makes for an odd-looking field, but you'll see this only when the
field code is displayed. F9 to update the field, then Alt+F9 (if necessary)
to hide it.

Note that this will not work if the number of pages in the document is
different from the page number of the last page (because you've restarted
numbering in a given section); if only one section is involved, you can use
the SECTIONPAGES field instead.
