not sure about 2007, but in word 2003 you can goto View>Header and Footer
then from the toolbar, click Insert Autotext> - PAGE -
remove the dashes from - 1 - and hit on Close
it should add a header with page numbers in your pages

The easiest way to put page numbers in a header in Word would be to be on page one,
Click on Insert --> Page Numbers
In the Page Numbers dialog box, set "Position:" to "Top of Page (header)"
In "Alignment:" choose where you want the page number (on the Left, Center of Right of the header).
Make sure the box before "Show number on first page" is checked.
Then click on "OK" and you are done.
These instructions are how do insert a header with a page # in Word 2003 so that page 1 would be marked with 1 in a header and page 2 would be marked with a 2 in the header ...
Is that what you were looking for?
