    I have a 3 page document. each page has a page break i need the first 2 pages to have in the footer, "page 1 of 2" and the third page needs to have "page i of i". i have tried so many different things and came close but still no success.

    i can get it to work if i can add a page break with out adding an extra page.

    So solving either will help me

    Thanks:(

    "Page 1 of 2" for the first page and "page 2 of 2" for the second page and "page i of i" for the third. And just typing it in is not an option????? Thanks

    Hi Shannon, welcome to TSG.

    Between page 2 and 3, you need a section break instead of a page break. You can go to the Page Layout tab and then choose Breaks/Next Page under section breaks. Then when you insert your footer on page 3, make sure "Link to Previous" is not selected. After you insert your page number, go to Page Number/Format Page Number. You will have the option to change your formatting to i, ii, iii ... and you can tell it to start at i instead of continuing from the previous section. If you don't get the numbers you want, you CAN just type over them. For example, pages 1 and 2 might say page 1 of 3 and page 2 of 3. You can change the 3 to a 2 and it will change on both pages. The key to having the section break and unlinking the footers is that typing over the footer on page 3 won't change the footer on pages one and two. I hope that makes sense.
