Good morning Experts, I have created a Word 2010 template for some documents and am having an issue with the page numbering in the footer.  

When a user opens the file, the footer on the first page reads (for example) 1 of 1 where in reality the page is (in the example) 1 of 2.  This occurs until the ref fields are updated.  Some users have complained because they have printed out copies and the page numbering on the first page seems to indicate the wrong number of total pages.  

Could someone please show me how to correct this problem?  I have tried searching through multiple forums but can't seem to find a solution to a similar issue.

Thanks in advance,
Paul Sauvé
