Word 2010 - Page Numbering problem within a section of a large document

I have a section in the middle of a large word document that I would like to number starting at "1".  at the bottom of the pages in that section.

In addition,  I would like to have the footer read "Page 1 of 14", "2 of 14", etc.  with "14" representing the number of pages in THAT particular section.

How can I do this?

Firstly, you need to use the 'Page Number Format' dialogue to to change the 'Page numbering' to start at 1 for the particular section.

After that, you need to have fields that, when expanded with the Alt+F9 toggle, look like*:
{ Page } of { SectionPages }

By 'look like', be aware that the curly brackets are field delimiters, entered along with the Insert Field operation or with the Ctrl+F9 action which inserts an empty delimiter pair to the document.

Note that if the fields are in the Header or Footer, and you don't want the same page numbering in the previous or the next header or footer, then you will have to unlink the header or footer from the previous as appropriate.
