Default Insert page number with Alphabetic, like page 5-a, 5-b, 5-c, then

How can I insert page number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, then 5-a, 5-b, 5-c follow by page
6 and so on in word 2000 or word 2003?

First, give your readers a baseball bat and invite them to hit you
repeatedly over the head with it. Tell them to continue until you shake off
this awful notion.

The short answer is: you can't!

A page number in Word is either a roman or an arabic number, it can
include the chapter number based on a heading style, and that's it.

Jezebel has an eloquent point there (regarding the requirement .-)).

Both including a chapter number in the heading number, as well as your
5-a, -b, etc., are kind or relics from the age where individual pages
were very expensive to print, and when a large text (a manual, for
instance) was revised, only the pages with changes were printed and
issued to the owners of the complete work. In the hope that the pages
would be substituted. Usually in vain (the hope, that is).

The long answer is: Certainly you _can_ insert a section break at the
end of page 4 and 5, make sure all headers in your sections are not
linked to the previous section, and then you can write (manually)
anything you desire in the header or footer or wherever you display
"page numbers".

In other words: if you really _need_ to work in page-oriented a manner,
Word is most probably not the tool you should be using.

If you want to ignore the good advice that you have been given, you can use

{ IF { PAGE } 4 { IF { PAGE } = 5 "5a" { IF { PAGE } = 6, "5b" { IF {
PAGE } = 7 "5c" { = { PAGE } - 2 }}}} { PAGE } }
