Archived from groups: microsoft>public>word>newusers (more info?)

Hello,

I have a Microsoft Word 2007 document which has a title and
table of contents on the first page and the various chapters on
the following pages. I have used an automatic TOC and then
clicked on the Insert tab and then Page Number -> Bottom of
Page to insert page numbers.

My problem is that I don't want the first page to be numbered
so that the second page starts with the number 1.

I have tried clicking Page Number -> Format Page Numbers...
to set the first page number at zero but then when I delete the
zero all page numbers are deleted by Word 2007 just as though
I had selected Page Number -> Remove Page Numbers.

How do I set up a document with no page number on the
page number on the first page and all subsequent pages
numbered sequentially starting from 1?

Thanks,

John Goche

In addition to setting 0 as the starting number, you have to enable
"Different first page."
