    I am trying to create a custom field using the numpages field in word 2007. I was trying to input from scratch (using the ctrl+F9). Also tried modifying the already inserted numpages field as well.

    {={NUMPAGES}+2} - so increase the number of pages by 2 so when I create a pdf later I can add in some attachments.

    I have searched around and tried placing spaces inbetween the mathical operators and commands, however I am still getting "!Syntax Error, {". I have also changed the security settings to allow macros (lowest security settings) and restart the document. Nothing happens and still getting the same error.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated
