Page Numbering



I would like to change the page numbering on page 6. For example I have in
the Footer Page 1 of 5 On the 6th page I would like to put
Page 1 of 1.

I have tried going to insert page break next page and insert page no.,
format, start at. but then it changes the previous set up.

Please advise how I go about doing this.

You need to insert a Section Break, Next Page and then go into the Footer
and clear the Same As Previous option. Now you can insert page numbers
starting at Page 1 but make sure that you use [ SectionPages ] and not [
NUMPAGES ] or it will continue Page 1 of 6, Page 2 of 6 rather than Page 1
of 1, Page 2 of 2.

You'll need to insert a section break between page 5 and page 6 and use the
SectionPages field instead of NumPages for the Y value.
