Windows 7: FOOTER PROBLEM in Word 2007

FOOTER PROBLEM in Word 2007

I'm doing a LONG document in Word 2007, and I cannot understand how to do the first few pages on the footer with an i and then ii for the second page (and, then on the third page to start it as Page 1 and so on throughout the document). After I do the first two pages with i and ii, when I try to start the third page numerically (as Page 1), it REMOVES the header designations (i & ii from my first two pages and starts page 1 on the very first page (which should be the i page). REALLY FRUSTRATING! I wouldn't have to do this in the first place if I could only convert the attached PDF into a Word doc. This is all my teacher wants. I tried a few PDF-To-Word conversion sites, but I haven't found one yet that didn't reproduce the bullets on the finished Word doc (somehow, this area is messed up). Can anyone offer any help, please?

Hello, Irene!

I just wanted to take the time to thank you for your reply here, as you've been the only one who has.

I tried the text links in the reply you had given me, but when the conversion process started, the finished result was indeed a Word doc; however, the areas in the PDF which had bullets were not "developed" correctly in the Word doc. In fact, all the free conversion sites shared this same problem - the bullets of the PDF just didn't come out right into the Word document. And, when I try to modify the error marks on the Word doc where the bullets should have been, trying to get a bullet there, it won't accept it . . . or, messes up the surrounding text area to some degree. This has been a real "challenge" to say the least. But, Irene, I'll keep trying; and thank you so much again for your willingness to help me.

REALLY FRUSTRATING!

No problem having page number format as "i, ii, iii, ..." then switching to a different format starting at the number you wish such as "1, 2, 3, ..." - two key points to remember: section breaks and NOT selecting "Continous from previous section" (need to select radio button "Start at:" then select the starting page number).

As I understand, you wanted two beginning pages with page number format of "i, ii, ..." then on the third physical page change the numbering to format "1,2,3, ...) beginning at page 1. Here is how I would do it in Word 2010 (should be same/similar in 2007):

> Begin a new document

> To insert page numbering into the footer:

1) Select (click on) the Insert tab

2) Click on the Page Number drop list icon

3) Scroll down to Bottom of Page

4) Slide over and scroll down to then click on the place/style desired (Plain Number 2 in this example); the page number is inserted into the footer of your document

5) Select the page number in your footer

6) Right click on the selection and select Format Page Numbers...; the Page Number Format dialog box opens

7) Click the Number format: drop list arrow and select the number style desired (here I selected i, ii, iii, ...)
> Note: Page numbering > Continue from previous section radio button is selected by default; leave as-is OR click the Start at: radio button and set the starting number to "1" in the spin box)

9) Double-click in the body of the document to "leave" from the footer.
> Suggestion: add a carriage return (line break) by pressing the Enter key on your keybaord (this makes it easier to add content in a few minutes)

10) Click the Page Break icon to insert a new page; a new page is inserted with page number "ii" in the footer

Thank You Again

THANK YOU SO MUCH, GEWB! I just now finished the document with the elaborate instructions you had told me (about the footer problem), and it has WORKED PERFECTLY! The first two pages were i and ii and then the page numbering started on the third page - precisely what I wanted to accomplish.

I just wanted to thank you again for your kind help. You're the ONLY ONE who knew what I was trying to convey. Thank you again and God bless . . .
