I have a workbook with 50 worksheets -- one for each state. I need pagination to start on page 9.

If I use Page Setup and specify 9 as the first page number, every worksheet thereafter shows page 9. If I set Auto as the first page number, it starts with 1 and every page numbers sequentially thereafter. It makes no sense

To start page numbering at page 9, type the following in the header or footer section of the Page Setup dialog box:
   "&P+8 " (without the quotation marks

Remarkably -- at least to me -- doing &[Page]+8 gives me a starting page number of 18 on the odd-numbered pages. But the even-numbered pages are now numbering properly. So when I do print preview, my page numbering looks like this:

18 - 10 - 38 - 12 - 58 - 14 - 78 etc.

I have attached a working copy of this in action. Some things to consider

Note the space at the end of "&P+8 ". Without this it will not work correctly
Ensure that you do not have "different odd and even pages" selected and if you do want this option that the footer for each one is set correctly by selecting tabs when editing the footer.

Thanks for calling my attention to the space at the end; I hadn't noticed that, and that in fact did the trick. And now I do have different odd and even pages, and each one is paginating correctly.

Cannot thank you enough -- there is no way I would have figured out the need for that space!
