Page Number in MS Word

Hello

I have a large document and I am trying to include page numbers, this works fine until I get to a landscape page, the number then gets out of sync and adds a 'a'.  Eg the page numbers are OK up to page 29 then changes to page 27a on the next page which is landscape.

Does anyone know how I can resolve this and get continuous page numbers?

Thank you

What version of Word have you?
Are you using section breaks .... I think you need to.
There is something strange going with your setup ..... I don't understand the "a" suffix.
Are doing anything here that would add the "a"

Start a new multi-page, multi-orientation document and see if you can reproduce the error.
Post it here.

Word doesn't make it easy as you can see here ...

Toggle ALL the format marks to on by clicking on the pilcrow character (¶) in the Paragraph group in the Home tab.

>>Eg the page numbers are OK up to page 29 then changes to page 27a on the next page which is landscape.

Go to page 29, then scroll down to see all the Section breaks before on and after the page with the Landscape orientation.

If you can only see 2 Section breaks then place the cursor between the 2 breaks and do as Rgonzo1971 suggested above.

If you see MORE then 2, then get rid of the superfluous ones and proceed as above.
