Hour 8. Formatting Pages > Adding Page Numbers

Adding Page Numbers

Word offers two methods for adding page numbers to your document. First, you can use the Insert, Page Numbers command, as described here, to tell Word what type of page number you want and where it should appear. Word then adds the page number field to the header or footer for you. Second, you can enter the page number field by inserting it directly in the header or footer (see the next section). This second method gives you more control over the appearance of your page numbers, and you can add other text to the header or footer at the same time if you like. (A field is a “holding place” for information that can be updated. In this case, the page number field updates automatically to display the correct page number on each page. Later in this hour, you'll learn how to insert other fields in the header or footer, and in Hour 12, “Handy Editing Techniques,” you learn about fields in more depth.)

To add the page number to your document using the Page Numbers dialog box, follow these steps:
