Default Page Header/Footer

I would like the exact same page header on every page, including page 1 and I
would like page numbers to begin displaying on page 2.

When I attempt to have page numbers display beginning from page 2, it
removes the header from page 1.

Default Page Header/Footer

If you have the Different first page box checked under the Page Layout tab,
uncheck it and in the header/footer where you want the page number to
appear, insert the following field construction

{ IF { PAGE } 1 { PAGE } }

You must use Ctrl + F9 to insert each pair of field delimiters { } and Alt
+F9 to toggle off their display.

If you want the second page to be numbered as page 1, then use:

{ IF { PAGE } 1 { = { PAGE }- 1 ) }

If you show your page numbers on page 1, that means: the headers are not
quite exactly the same, then.

See Doug's answer.

The "tweaking" with what you display as a page number may have unwanted
side effects: if you intend to reference a page number through Word
(say, with a table of contents), this will show you what the PAGE field
shows w/o the subtraction.

So, if you _do_ reference the page numbers, I'd rather instruct Word to
start with "0" and either

- use the "Different First Page" setting and copy the header over, or
- test and show the page number only when it's 0 (with the same IF
field around the PAGE field.

HTH

Default Page Header/Footer

I tried inserting the fields you describe below into my footers. I hit ALT F9
to turn off the field codes and I got an error message..something about
codes, conditions, etc.
I hit CTRL F9 to insert field code brackets, typed 'IF', hit CTRL F9 again,
typed 'PAGE', etc. to copy your fields below.

Did I do something wrong? If so, how do I construct your field codes below
the correct way?

Also, I'm confused...I know { IF { PAGE } 1 { = { PAGE }- 1 ) } will make
the page #ing start on page 2.
But what does { IF { PAGE } 1 { PAGE } } do?

Doug's field starts numbering with 2 on the second page, leaving the first
page blank. Your field starts with 1 on the second page.

Default Page Header/Footer

I'm really sorry but I need some clarification.

First, am I creating the field code correctly by using CTRL F9 to create
field code brackets, typing 'IF', then using CTRL F9 to create more field
code brackets in order to type {PAGE}, etc?

I then need to clarify that:
{ IF { PAGE } 1 { = { PAGE }- 1 ) } = Starts #ing with 1 on the second page
{ IF { PAGE } 1 { PAGE } } = Starts #ing with 2 on the second page
Is that right?

Yes. But it shouldn't be too difficult to create a dummy multipage document
and test this for yourself instead of asking me.

I got an error message when I tried it which prompted my initial question to
the forum. I'll try again.
