How come I cannot get page numbers working in Word?

by on May 28, 2009

Q: I’m writing a book in MS Word and I want to insert page numbers a header starting on page 7, but even when I add a section break, the header and numbers begin on page 2. What am I doing wrong?

    1) Make sure you’ve clicked inside the section you want to add page numbers to before you start changing the page settings.

    2) Read completely the section in Word Help titled “Specify how to start or restart page numbering” to make sure you didn’t miss any other steps.
