Page number consecutively only to odd pages

I need to put page number in word but I want to numbering only the odd pages consecutively.... 1,2,3,4...
I thought to separate the document in odd an even sections and the go to the first odd page (1) to make {PAGE} but how can I do this separation...

Use the tiny arrow at the bottom right of the Page Setup group on the Page layout tab to open the Page Setup dialogue, Tick the 'Different odd and even' checkbox on the Layout tab.

Display the field codes (Alt+F9) and enter fields in the header or footer to look like this:

{ = ({ PAGE } + 1)/2 }

remember to use Crtl+F9 to enter the field delimiters: { }

Use Alt+F9 to toggle back to displaying the field results.

I found that word has the property "Different odd and even". Page number not appeared in even pages but in odd pages the numbers are 1,3,5... I need to be 1,2,3,4,5....
Any idea...?

you can try this code to acieve your goal:
{=MOD({PAGE},2) \# "{=INT({PAGE}/2)+1};;"}
