Default Section And Page No.s Word 2003

Hello

I have been following the instructions both on websites and also on Youtube videos. I have spent 5 hours on it today and got nowhere so I am getting desperate for help.

A lot of things went wrong and I am still struggling.

I have switched on the revealer and there is only ONE section break.

When I look at the headers and footers it shows clearly that the first 5 pages are Section One and then page six and all subsequent one are in section two. I broke the links.

When I insert page numbers into section 2, starting with the number 6, I put the cursor on page 6 and click insert page number start from page 6.But what Word does is numbers section one from page 6 to page 11. Section Two has no numbers.

I am at my wits' end, having wasted the best part of a whole day just trying to insert page numbers.

Can anyone help?

ETA.... it seems to be working now... while waiting for a reply I kept on fiddling, and found that the ONLY way to make it put page numbers from page 6 is to put the cursor on page 8 then insert page number . And no matter how many time I said "centre" it puts them on the right hand corner of every page. Still, the contents page has updating itself correctly (I think!)

Using the Page Number dialog box isn't recommended. See

Wow that is a useful link, thank you!

I hate formatting a book in Word, but this time I have no choice, so I might be back next time I get stuck.

Cheers!

Helena
