Part 7. Formatting Pages > Numbering Pages

Numbering Pages

Open the Insert menu and choose Page Numbers. (It doesn't matter where your insertion point is in the document when you issue the command.)

If you want the number at the bottom of the page, skip to step 4. To place the number at the top, click the down arrow next to the Position list and choose Bottom of page (Footer).

Click the down arrow to the right of the Alignment list and choose the alignment you prefer for your page numbers.

INTRODUCTION

Word offers two methods for adding page numbers to your document. First, you can use the Insert, Page Numbers command, as described in this task, 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 into the header or footer (see the next two tasks). This second method gives you more control over the appearance of your page numbers.


Click the OK button.

Word inserts page numbers in the location you specified.
