Default Page #'s in Roman Numeral

Just so you know, there's no such thing as an "American" number; the ones we
use here are roman and arabic numerals (just to make things more confusing,
Arabic actually uses something different).

Sorry to say there are no Roman numerals anywhere at all in the document
I'm
working on. I'm writing a book and the page numbers are all American.

Is there maybe an initial Section with roman numbers, and he happens
to have the cursor in that section when he's tried scrolling?

I'm always surprised when the elevator button (is that really what
it's called?) announces the headings as it passes them. (Just like
Shirley McLaine in *The Apartment*, which was on Channel 13 last
week.) Does it work off the same stuff as Document Map (which I've
been using for years and never had a problem with, despite the
cautions in a recent thread)?

As I said, the only way I see roman numerals there is if I select i,
ii, iii
as the format in Format Page Number.

Yes, I'm printing page numbers on the pages. The footer numbers show
up
perfectly the way they are supposed to on the pages. I'm talking
about
when
you grab the elevator button in the scroll bar and pull it up or
down.
The
little window that opens beside the scroll bar shows the page you are
scrolling to in Roman numeral.

Are you printing numbers on the page? If not, then perhaps you are
going
by
the status bar page numbers? They are always arabic AFAIK. The only
way I
can see roman numerals when scrolling is if the page number format
is set
to
roman numerals.

Suzanne,

I"m sorry but maybe I didn't explain this right. The document's
page
numbers are fine. It's the scroll bar page numbers that are in
Roman
numeral
I am scrolling up and down through the document looking for a
specific
page
but the page numbers with the scroll bar elevator aren't in
American so
I
can't find the page without going page by page by page by ....
You get
the
idea.

On the Insert tab, in the Header & Footer group, click on Page
Number,
choose Format Page Numbers..., and choose 1, 2, 3 format.

I have Office 2007 and in just one Word document the page
numbers
when
scrolling are in Roman numerals instead of American. Can
anyone
tell
me
how
to get the correct page numbers back? This particular document
has
over
500
pages and it's kind of hard to find the one I need for
editing.-
