Reverse Page Numbering
 
Hi,

I'm not sure this can be done, but ... going to ask anyway. XP Pro SP3 and
Office 2002.

Is there a way to reverse the order of pages in a Word document? Last page
becomes first, next to last becomes next, and so on. Instead of 1, 2, 3,
.... the physical appearance changes to 42, 41, 40 ... 3, 2, 1.

I have a Word document which is displayed 'upside down': In other words, the
LAST page is page 1, next to last is page 2, and so on down to the first
page, which is page 42, but at the bottom of the file; last page shown.

This is meant to be an onscreen reference, so printing in reverse order
won't suffice; access is going to be onscreen. I made some brief tests as
simply cutting/pasting the pages into their correct order but quickly got
lost and botched the job; mainly because as soon as you move a page, its
page number changes in Word, so without making each page large enough to see
and comparing next/following pages, one gets lost pretty quickly. Thought
about a macro, move bottom to position 1, bottom to position 2, etc, but I'm
not able to get anything to work. I just don't know VBA well enough.

Any thoughts or ideas on how to accomplish this?

TIA,

Twayne

Word is not a page alyout application so there are no 'pages' as such, but a
continuous document flowed to the page layout settings, as dictated by the
current printer driver. What may work for you is to output to a PDF printer
driver, such as PrimoPDF (or of course Acrobat) and set the option to
'print' in reverse order. This will produce a document viewable on screen
with Adobe Reader that is in reverse page order, retaining the original page
numbering.

I've solved it with a rather clunky macro I wrote so I'm all set now. It
failed to move the graphics pages but there were only a few of those, so no
problem. The OCR that created it used Section Breaks with starting the next
section on a new page, so it wasn't too hard to figure out. Then at the end
I had it replace the section breaks with page feeds to maintain the page
splits and all worked out.

However you wish to interpret Word's or any other apps method of handling
pages is fine with me. Turned out to not be a big problem, fortunately.
Unfortunately though the page numbers weren't part of the document; they
only existed in the application that displayed the pages.
Cheers,

Hi Twayne,

have you tried using fields in your header like this
{={NumPages}-{Page}+1}
This should give the desired numbering.

Markus

No problem; it's an old question anyway and somewhere along the line shows
it was solved in the title line.

Thanks for the time though.
