You and I know that the first page of a document is page 1, but Word doesn’t care. It lets you start
numbering your document at whichever page number you want. If you want to start numbering your
document at page 42, you can do so, if you follow these instructions:
1. Click the Insert tab.
2. In the Header & Footer area, choose Page Number ⇒ Format Page Numbers.
Figure 13-2: Gain more control over page numbers.
3. Select the Start At radio button, and type the beginning page number in the box.
4. Click OK to close the Page Number Format dialog box.
Word starts numbering your document at the specified page number. So if you enter 47 in Step 3, the
first page of the document is now page 47, the next page is 48, and so on.
For more page number control, such as suppressing the page number on the document’s
first page or having the page number jump in the middle of the document, you use sections.
Different page numbering styles or sequences can be set for individual sections. See Chapter
14 for more information on sections.
