My OS is win 10 Prof 64 bit and I have Office 365 and use Word 2016.   I am working on a large document of about 300 pages and need to insert Chapter numbers.  I have already inserted a footer for page numbers from the beginning of the document.  But the Chapter changes from page 22 to 30, how do I do this in the footer, so that the whole document will have the chapters inserted correctly.
thank u for your advise and regards

Try increasing the margin (top and bottom) so there is more room for the header and footer. This works for me.

You need to insert section breaks and break the link to the previous section as detailed here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/delete-or-change-a-header-or-footer-on-a-single-page-a9b6c963-a3e1-4de1-9142-ca1be1dba7ff
