Hi po00874,

You didn't mention what you tried to display the slide numbers, so here is the basic procedure: Slide numbers
If you have done this already, please let us know what other problems you are having!

Sorry I wasn't more direct.  I did try to use display the slide numbers by using the insert slide number, however that didn't work.  I also tried useing the master slide.  I think it had something to do with having a table on the page.  I also tried bringing the the place holder to the front, with no luck.  

I am new to this, so I may have been doing that wrong on the master slide.  I don't really know how to make the change so that it will take effect on all slides.  All the numbers were showing except on the ones with tables.  The tables didn't cover the place holders so I'm not even sure if that is the problem.

I'm quite sure that the tables are hiding the page numbering on those particular slides. I have never heard of a problem where the page number only appears on certain pages (except, of course, in you choose not to display it on the Title slide.)

Do the tables extend to the bottom on the slide? In that case, you can possibly remove the background color of the cells in the table and you will then see the page numbers.

2007 is a little weird with slide numbers!

You need two things:

On the relevant slide layout (in view > slide master) make sure there is a number placeholder.

Then in Normal view INSERT Slide number > Tick the box and Apply to all.

If you cannot see it try going to the master layout and changing to a bigger font / brighter color as the default can be small and light grey which may not show up on some backgrounds
