I have a single page document in Word 2010.

Is there any way to print say 50 copies with a box that shows a number increasing by one as each page is printed?

Grateful for any advice.

    Print 50 copies then open your printer in the bottom right hand corner of your screen and it will tell you the number it is currently printing.

    Sorry, didn't explain well, I need to sequentially add a number that is printed onto each document. In each instance the document is one page long and identical apart from a different number on each.

    I';m guessing you want to sequentially number each copy you are printing out - look here for instructions on how to create a macro that can do this:

    This can also be done in Visual Basic as described here:

    This is easy...

    Within Word click on Insert > Page Number > On bottom of page (or wherever you'd like it)
