Hello Everyone, i have a two part question

I need to add a page to a word document without adding it to the total page count.  Ie so that my page 1 of 10 is still of 10 even thought their is an eleventh page.


Secondly i need to refrance to figures and tables without them showing up in the TOC.

I used the insert Caption now i want a field that would point to the number of the caption.

For the part of your question, put this in your footer:

{PAGE} of {={NUMPAGES}-1}

I'm not quite sure I understand the second part of your question.  You can dictate what goes into your TOC if you used styles....

If you could explain where you want the "field that would point to the number of the caption" to be...that would be helpful.  Are you creating an index of tables and figures?  Or will it just be in the text of the document?

Simple i have a TOC with List of Figures but i need to referance the figure in my text.

Blah Blah Blah ( see Figure 1 )

Were Figure one always points to the right thing, so that if i add another figure above it it would then read

Blah Blah Blah ( see Figure 2 )

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Ok - to get to the second part of your question:

Go to where you want to reference the table/figure, Insert, Cross-Reference, in the "Reference Type", select table or figure as the case may be and then select the one you want to reference.

Also, for the footer problem, try using Insert, Field, Section Pages.
