Hi Sherry,
First, I see that you joined Experts Exchange today, so let me say — Welcome Aboard! Second, to your question. It depends on what software you're using. I see that the Topic of your question is Adobe Acrobat, but please confirm that this is the software you're using. If so, what is the version? If not, what software are you using (including its version)?

For Nuance's Power PDF Advanced, this 5-minute EE video Micro Tutorial explains how to do it:
Bates Stamping/Numbering of PDF Files with Power PDF Advanced

The steps are very similar in Acrobat, and you can probably figure it out by watching my Power PDF video, but if not, let me know and I'll provide the exact steps, if I have the software that you're using (I have Adobe Acrobat XI Pro and Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, and other software that can do Bates Stamping/Numbering). Welcome to Experts Exchange! Regards, Joe

Thanks guys for sharing your views, I read your suggestions to the point. But, as I don't have any Adobe Acrobat application for bates stamping so I tried PDF Bates Numberer Tool as described in the blog shared by Edwin.
