Page numbering in Word 2007

I have a short document and have arranged for the page numbers to appear at the bottom corner of each page. At the moment the numbers are displaying on the Left Bottom Corner of each page. I want the pages to alternate: one appearing Left Bottom, the next appearing Right Bottom. Alternating.

I followed the link on the Help progam which should have solved this, but I kept getting lost.

Can you tell me simply what I need to to to enable this feature.

I made a small screencast to show you.  The first time I ever did it this way, but let me know what you think.

In word, I imagine that you put the page numbers in the Footer section of the document?? While you have the "Footer" section opened, look at the Ribbon bar and simply select "Different Odd & Even Pages" under the Design Options.

Go to the footer of the next page (the Odd page) and change the numbering to be on the right hand side instead of the left hand side.  Every subsequent page within that section should follow suit.

When I select  'Different Odd and Even Pages', the page number DISAPPEARS on every second page.

Yes, that is correct. You will need to reinsert a NEW page number on the second page.

Simply go back into the Fotter section on the second page (where you no longer have a page number) and select the Insert Tab on the Ribbon Bar, and select "Page Number".  From the drop down select one of the templates that has the page number on the opposite side of the page as the previous footer.
