Every time I have to start numbering from a specific page in Word 2007, I have been in trouble. I have been asked by so many people to help with this. However, i have never been able to make it in the first try. This time I thought of taking note to insert page number at specific page. The note is as below:
You can also watch video for more clarity.
Step 1 : Click at the top of the page where you want to start numbering pages.
Step 2 : On the Page Layout tab, click Breaks >>> Continuous.
Step 3 : On in the Insert tab, Click Page Number. Choose the position in the header or footer where you want your page number to appear.
Step 4: In the Navigation group, click to deselect Link to previous
Step 5: Scroll up one page and delete the page number from header or footer. After this step you should have no page number at the beginning of your document.
Above mentioned steps will start page numbering from a certain page and the page number starts from 3 or 2 or the number of pages you have skipped on step 1 by clicking on the top of the page from where you want numbering.
If you wish to have numbering start from 1 even in the 3rd page after skipping numbering on first 2 , continue with the following steps
Step 6 : On the Insert tab, Click Page Numbers >>> Format Page Numbers
Step 7 : Select Start at radio button and write the appropriate value in the box Start at or select Continue from previous section which is by default selected.
I hope this helps you. If yes please like this post.
