Select print and when the options appear, click on Page Setup down the bottom of all the options.

Now click on the third tab (Header/Footer). From the dropdown under Footer, you can choose "Page 1 of ?" which will give you the page numbers you want.

If you want greater control over where the page x of y appears on the page, you can click the Custom Footer button. From there you can choose where the page numbers appear and set your own format. The buttons with the icons will add different pieces of information you might want in the footer. Page and Pages are there and the code to acieve exactly what you have written above would look like this -

&[Page] Of &[Pages]

As an alternative approach:

Click the Insert Ribbon > Header & Footer. The page view will change to the Page Layout view, with the header selected, and the Header & Footer Tools ribbon will appear. The header and footer regions are shown with three columns each.

Click into the header/footer area where you want the page number to go, then, select from the Header or Footer drop-down at the very left of that ribbon. There is an option for "Page 1 of ?".

cheers, teylyn
