Default Starting page numbering 21 at page 21 but no numbering precedi

Unless you're changing the page orientation for the figures and tables, or
unless there is a requirement that a page with a table or figure not have
the usual header/footer, a simple page break should suffice (a section break
should not be necessary).

If you have page numbers showing on pages 1-20, then it does not suffice to
just unlink the header/footer in the section beginning on page 21 from the
headers/footers on the previous pages; you must actually access the
headers/footers in those previous sections and delete the page numbers.

The whole idea is that a header/footer has the content you have put into it;
if you want it gone, you have to remove it. If you want to remove it
selectively (or insert it selectively from the outset), you have to unlink
the sections before deleting/inserting it.

StyleRef fields have no relation to page numbering, but see Word's Help on
the field for the basics and http://sbarnhill.mvps.org/WordFAQs/StyleRef.htm
for some further uses.

hi Suzanne and Terry,

Thank you again for both comments. I'll describe a typical chapter as an

I use built-in Heading 1 level for say Chapter 1, followed then by some
paragraphs of text then sub-headings, again using built-in Heading 2 and 3
(and for the whole document - only up to Heading 3 and no more). Within
chapter I have either a table or tables and/or figure of figures (for
which I
used built-in caption-ing). Because of the requirement by my organization
that table, tables, figure or figures must be on individual page, I have
section break next page if the next page going to contain table(s) or
figure(s) and following either table(s) or figure(s) or the beginning of
next chapter.

However, now, I have tried page break for all pages to just before page 20
and inserted section break next page on page 20. Even after these changes,
all the pages are still showing from 1 - 21. I don't seem to be able to
somehow forced words not to display the first 20 pages page numbering. I
tried 'unlinking' headers/footers on page 20 - in spite of this, the page
numbering still showed up!

The other thing that I have tried (in light of Terry's comments) is to do
away with page breaks and section breaks altogether for the first twenty
pages, again I was not able to make that the first page numbering is page
beginning at page 21.

Suzanne, I am intrigued by StyleRef fields - would you be able to give me
pointers as to how to utlize this? If this can be co-apted into my
to solve the numbering, then I would give this a go.

Terry, I hope the above description of my document helps.

This is one vexing problem! I hope there is further pointer(s) and advice.

Thank you again for your input.
