Windows 7: Page numbering problem in Word 2010

Page numbering problem in Word 2010

I have a word file with page numbering starting at 227. From page 246 is the two column index. But at that point the page numbers go wonky, repeats number of first page 227 or numbers repeat on successive pages. I have tried compiling the index as a separate file then adding it to the end of the main file all to no avail. Is this a nother famous MS Word glitch of which I am so far unaware?
I assume it is due to some disconnect or internal confusion when the two-columned pages start. How do I get it to work properly with page numbers in proper numerical sequence from start to end of this document?
