Default Page Numbers not in sequence

I have a document where just about every page is formatted differently. I am
unable to start numbers where I want and when I try to insert page numbers,
the numbering sequence begins all over again at about page five. I am sure
it is because of all the different page set ups; most pages have data that
displays 8 1/2 by 11. However, frequently there are pages where the data
displays 11 by 8 1/2. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Default Page Numbers not in sequence

If the different pages are separated by Next Page (not Continuous or regular
Page) Breaks, the numbering should work correctly. For instance, after the
first Next Page break, go into the footer and format the page number to
Continue from previous section. Whenever pages go from portrait to landscape
and back again, this must be done after each section break. Let me know if
it works!

Note that you can restart page numbers for continuous sections as well, but
it requires a bit more work, as you will have to insert a page break,
temporarily, so that you can see the headers and footers of those sections.

Default Page Numbers not in sequence

Page number restarts are set for each individual section, and whenever
section formatting (page setup, headers & footers, and newspaper columns)
changes, a section break has been inserted in Word. To see the section
breaks, display nonprinting marks (for example by pressing Ctrl+Shift+8);
you may also want to switch to Normal view (Draft view in Word 2007). For
more on sections in general, see
http://word.mvps.org/faqs/formatting...thSections.htm.

Use the Page Number Format dialog box to set starting options for page
numbering in each section. The dialog box can be accessed via the Header and
Footer toolbar (Word 2003) or the Header & Footer Tools Design tab (Word
2007). (For more on headers and footers, see
http://sbarnhill.mvps.org/WordFAQs/HeaderFooter.htm.)

On the other hand, if you are saying that you want page numbering to be
continuous through-out the document, this can easily be accomplished with a
macro:

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

For assistance, see http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm.

It worked great. In fact, I only needed to insert the break one time. Thank
you for your help
