Default continuous page numbering through section breaks

I'm glad I could help, even though it has been almost six years after I
posted that message. :-)

After you've selected the "Continue from previous" option, does it help
you also make a change in the document, such as adding and deleting a
character, before saving?

You may also want to try running the following macro, just to be sure
the restart option is being modified for all sections (even continuous
without visible headers and footers):

Sub ContPageNumbering()
Dim s As Section
For Each s In ActiveDocument.Sections
s.Footers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).PageNumbers _
.RestartNumberingAtSection = False
Next s
End Sub

The page numbering in footer returns to 1 after every section break in
long document. I've repeatedly "fixed" this by clicking the "Continue
previous section" button in the Page Number Format dialog box for each
section and saved the document. But when I open the document again,
section starts back at page 1. I'm using Word 2007, odd and even page
and footers. What am I missing? Thanks.

Thank you, Stefan! Your macro worked like a charm and saved me hours of
work!!! Thank you very much!!!
