I did get the chapter and page numbering correctly, i.e., 17.1.
However, it ended up on the top of the page when I want it centered at the
bottom of each page. I tried changing header to footer while in the print
layout but when I closed the header/footer box it disappeared!? and was still
at the top.
Note: I keep each chapter in a different file.

Don't use Insert Page number for this. Edit the headers and footers. You
need to be in header and footer view to do this (which is a variant of print
layout view).

Look into using the StyleRef field.

I still was unable to complete the task. I put the ch. & pg #in the footer
but it was not able to center it. Where is StyleRef field? I don't know why
is has to be so difficult. In WordPerfect, it's a piece of cake to do this.

Did you try using a single tab character to place the page number at the
default center tab? Or using Ctrl+E to center the paragraph?

The StyleRef field is available under Insert Field. But first you must
know about and be using Styles. If you have a particular style attached to
the information you want in the header, such as Heading 1, you can pick up
changes in that item as they occur and have them show up in your header.

Here is some general info on moving from Word Perfect to Word:

Word and Word Perfect work very differently from one another. Each program's
methods have strengths and weaknesses; but, if you try to use one of these
programs as if it were the other, it is like pushing on a string! You can
easily make a lot of extra work for yourself. If you are unwilling to take
the time to learn to use Word's methods, you should stick to using Word Pad.
You'll have a lot less grief, although you'll miss out on a lot of raw
power. In the (short) long term spending the time to learn Word will save
you time if you are spending any time at all (more than an hour a day) using
Word.

See http://www.addbalance.com/word/wordperfect.htm

http://businesssoft.about.com/comput.../blconvert.htm
for information on Word for Word Perfect users.

http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/Number...gExplained.htm
http://www.addbalance.com/usersguide/styles.htm
http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/Custom...latesStore.htm


Function Keys

In Word 2000 (or later) You can get the function keys to display in a
special toolbar at the bottom of the screen if you want (something like
pressing F3 twice in WP). The following macro will do this.
Sub ShowMeFunctionKeys()
Commandbars("Function Key Display").Visible = True
End Sub

Word's Extend key (F8) gives something similar to block processing.


Formatting and Styles

Learn about Styles - really learn!
http://www.addbalance.com/usersguide/styles.htm I resisted for years and now
regret every day of those years because although that string was still very
hard to push, it kept getting longer and longer, and had some very important
projects tied to it! Once you understand styles and the Word concept of
organizing things into Chinese boxes everything falls into place and instead
of pushing a string, you can push a button that turns on the very powerful
text processing machine known as Microsoft Word and it will start doing your
work for you instead of running around behind you trying to undo what you
just thought you did.


Converting documents Word / Word Perfect

Some special characters in Word Perfect documents don't convert well to
Word. There is a macro to assist with this described at
http://www.columbia.edu/~em36/wpdos/...html#macroword and can be found
at http://www.columbia.edu/~em36/wpdos/WPSymbolConv.bas.
This was prepared by Edward Mendelson.
Otherwise, look at the macro from http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=212396
Use these on _copies_!

As for converting documents from Word Perfect to _use_ in Word... In a word,
don't plan on it. I would not recommend using converted documents long-term.
They will be filled with formatting anomolies that will get you at the worst
time. This is especially true of any documents containing automatic
numbering or bullets. Try recreating form documents in Word using the
following process:
In Word Perfect (if you still have it, in Word if not) save your files as
text files.
Use your converted files as references to show you how you want your
formatting to look.
Create a new document in Word and insert the text from the text file. Save
this new document as a Word template. Format it the way you want using
styles, not direct formatting. Save it again.
To use a template within Word, use File = New and pick your template. This
will create a new document for you.

Merge documents have special problems and should be recreated from text
files or retyped in Word. To convert data files, consider generating labels
in WP as a document, converting that to Word, and then using
http://www.gmayor.com/convert_labels...mail_merge.htm to get a new Word
data file.

Note that conversions usually do create documents that look passable and
print OK; the problems I'm referring to have to do with editing / making
changes, that is, using the documents long-term. (See below on reusing
documents vs. using templates.)

Conversion back to Word Perfect: There is a problem (in addition to the ones
mentioned for conversion _to_ Word) with Version 2002 (XP) and later of
Word. The conversion file only works for conversion _to_ Word, not from Word
to Word Perfect! Earlier versions went both ways. To fix this, you need to
find the old conversion file WPFT532.CNV from a Word 97 or Word 2000
installation and copy it to your new installation, replacing the file of the
same name. Note, the change making the file one-way was done as a security
measure. While I don't know of any problems the old file causes, keep the
new installation's file somewhere as a backup just in case.


Boilerplate and Forms

In WP a lot of people use macros to hold chunks of text - boilerplate. In
Word this function is filled by Templates, AutoText and AutoCorrect, not
macros. Follow the links at
http://addbalance.com/word/wordwebre...s.htm#AutoText for more
information on these tools.

You can use FILLIN and ASK fields or UserForms to query the user. For more
about online forms, follow the links at
http://addbalance.com/word/wordwebresources.htm#Forms or
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Customizat...nTheBlanks.htm especially Dian
Chapman's series of articles. You may also want to look at
http://www.word.mvps.org/FAQs/TblsFl...nesInForms.htm.


Reusing Documents vs. Using templates

General practice in WP is to have a document and copy and edit it to create
a new document. This is not good practice in Word. In Word, construct a
good, tight, template for your documents and use that template when
constructing new documents. Among other things, this can avoid embarrassing
"metadata" (http://www.addbalance.com/usersguide/metadata.htm) and things
like surprise headers and footers from creeping into new documents.

It's a lot of reading, I know. It's OK to chunk it down and do a bit each
day, but I would recommend that you make it a top priority to do that bit
each day. In the (short) long run, it will save you both time and grief.

Still have not accomplished the task. I have spent hours reading and trying
all different paths but I always run into road blocks. I have the 2003 step
by step manual and that doesn't help me either. I've consulted the different
web sites - no luck. Is there no user friendly advice out there, i.e., easy
step by step instructions on how to put a ch & pg number (17.1) on the BOTTOM
of the page?
Thanks, a frustrated grace

Did you try using a single tab character to place the page number at the
default center tab? Or using Ctrl+E to center the paragraph?

I still was unable to complete the task. I put the ch. & pg #in the

footer
but it was not able to center it. Where is StyleRef field? I don't know

why
is has to be so difficult. In WordPerfect, it's a piece of cake to do

this.

Don't use Insert Page number for this. Edit the headers and footers.

You
need to be in header and footer view to do this (which is a variant of

print
layout view).

Look into using the StyleRef field.

I did get the chapter and page numbering correctly, i.e., 17.1.
However, it ended up on the top of the page when I want it centered at

the
bottom of each page. I tried changing header to footer while in the

print
layout but when I closed the header/footer box it disappeared!? and

was
still
at the top.
Note: I keep each chapter in a different file.

Applying the available instructions has not helped me to do the

above.
I
would like to use this format: 17.1 I want chapter to remain the

same
&
page
numbers to change.
