Appendices, ToCs, and pagination
Posted on 1998-12-11
I'm running into a problem with generating Tables of
Contents in MS Word 97 (under Windows 95).
The problem centers around adding an appendix (or several
appendices) to a document. The normal custom is to
restart the page number for each such appendix; instead
of numbering from 1 to "n", we are supposed to number
from "A-1" to "A-n" for Appendix A, "B-1" to "B-n" for
Appendix B, and so on.
While I can modify the footer (and the text box in the
footer that has the page number) to include the "A-" or
"B-", I cannot get that prefix into the ToC rendering
of the page number.
The "include chapter number in page" won't work. The
catch is that all our chapters are numbered, and "A" and
"B" are NOT numbers.
Is there are any way to convince Word that Chapter 9 is
followed by Appendix A, NOT chapter 10?
