    Using Word 2007, P.C.
    I would like to know how to set my printing preferences to read the actual number of pages in the document as opposed to what I have set in the header/footer. Let me explain:
    I have a document which is 30 pages. However, I have set section breaks so that I could set up the header and footer to start numbering page 1 on the actual page 3 (the first two pages of the document are title pages.) Anyway, the header numbers then read 1-28, with 28 written in the header on actual page 30.
    When I go to print... and I want to specify which pages to print, let's say I want actual page range 17-20 tp print; well, I type in 17-20 into the field on the print box, but then actual pages 19-22 print because the printer read the header/footer page number, instead of the document's actual page number.
    Can I change the printer settings to read the actual document page number instead of the header/footer number? I have never done anything like that, so I would need fairly specific directions of where to go inorder to make these changes, if at all possible; also, I am a little uneasy with Word 2007 and how to locate certain applications and settings, so I might need general help getting to the right area. Thanks so much!
