I was trying to solve a page-numbering problem. during my research I learned of the {page} field. I also learned I could add these using Quick Parts.
     Here is my problem: Now when I try to add a page number, it adds this:   {page \*mergeformat}
     I want to reset my Word so that when I try to add a page number, it actually adds a real, bona-fide page number, and not some field. I deleted the normal.dotm file. I'm still having this problem. I restarted my PC, I'm still having this problem.

Reliable Page numbering needs to be done with a Page field,
What you see is the field code. Try using the Alt+F9 toggle to see what number the field calculates for the page number.
