Make different page number formats

Sometimes you feel headache when you want to have different page number formats in your single document and you cannot do it. For example, in the first ten pages in your document, you want to format page number from I-X, but from page 11 downward you want to format page number from 1 to 30. You can do it by following the steps below.

1.Set section break

You need to set section break using next page choice on the page that you want to divide your document in to different sections. In this example, you have 30 pages in your document. You want to divide this document in to two sections. In section 1, you want to display page number from I-X and in section 2 you want to display page number from 1 to 20. Therefore, the point to set section break is in page X (page 10th ). To set section break, please do like the following:

-Click Page Layout—>Breaks

-Under section break, select next page

2.Click on the first page of section 1

-Click insert—> the Header &Footer group, select Page Number

-Click Format Page Number… to open page number format dialog

-In drop down list next to Number format, select i,ii,iii…

-Type i in Start at box and then click Ok

-Click Page Number —>Click  Top of Page… or Bottom of Page… to put the number in the location of each page that you want

3.Now in section 1, you can see the page numbers as you wish, but in section 2 it is not as you wish. So you need to do more things.

-Click on the first page of section 2 (page 11th) in header or footer section. You will see the phrase “Same as previous” in the right.

-Click Link to Previous in the design group of header & footer tools to clear “Same as previous”

-Click insert—> the Header &Footer group, select Page Number

-Click Format Page Number… to open page number format dialog

In drop down list next to Number format, select 1,2,3…

Type 1 in Start at box and then click Ok

-Click Page Number —>Click  Top of Page… or Bottom of Page… to put the number in the location of each page that you want

Now page numbers display as you wish!
