Better page numberation control in Word XP - mixing roman numerials and regular numbers and Table of Contents

Hi,

I have a document of which I'd like to have some better control over page numbering.

I'd like to have the title page have no number.. something like this

title page - no number
first page - i
second page - ii
third page (table of contents starting for at fourth page) - iii
fourth page - 1
fifth page - 2
sixth page - 3
seventh page - 4

etc.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks.

-Edward

You need to divide your document into 3 sections (insert¦Section break - continuous or next page).

*Section A is title page

No numbering

*Section B is with roman numerals.

Insert¦Page Numbers, tick "Show number on first page"; click the Format... button, select the roman numerals and start numbering from i.

*Section C is the rest of the text.

Insert¦Page Numbers, tick "Show number on first page"; click the Format... button, select the arabic numerals and start numbering from 1

Click on Insert, Page Numbers. Then Format. Click on the down arrow and select the lower case roman numerials (i,ii,iii). Then at the end of the third page insert a section page. Then go page four and view your header and footer and unclick "Link to Previous Section." Then click Insert, Page Numbers. Check on Start at: and put 4 in the box. Finally click OK.
