Default change total number of pages

Yes, and I'm not sure that Alicia quite understands the extent of the
problem.

I gave the same answer (albeit in more detail) to a duplicate question
yesterday, but probably the OP will see neither since it appears that NNTP
posts are not being propagated to the Web portal.

Hi,

Use a SECTIONPAGES field instead of a NUMPAGES field.

can any body tell me how can we change total number of pages in the
same
document.

For example, my document consists of total six pages. To number my
pages, I
select "Page X of Y" option in footer. So this will include the total
number
of pages (i-e., 6) with the page number in each page.(From 1 to 6)

Now supposedly, if i want a different page number on Page 3 of the
document.
Lets say i want to number it as page 1. For this to happen, ill first
do a
"section break" at page 2 and in "Header & Footer" group, click "format
page
numbers", and then type 1 in the "Start at" box.

This will number my page 3 of the document as 1. On page 3 it will
appear as
Page 1 of 6. Like wise all my pages will be numbered as:

page 1.......... Page 1 of 6
page 2.......... Page 2 0f 6

page 3.......... Page 1 of 6
page 4 ......... Page 2 of 6
page 5 ......... Page 3 of 6
page 6 ......... Page 4 of 6

But i want to change the total number of pages (i-e., Y) on page 3
also. The
above mentioned feature in MS WORD allows me to change the page number
of
current page whereas i want to change both i-e., the current page
number
along with total number of pages.

Here is a sample TO WHAT I WANT!!

page 1.......... Page 1 of 2
page 2.......... Page 2 0f 2

page 3.......... Page 1 of 4
page 4 ......... Page 2 of 4
page 5 ......... Page 3 of 4
page 6 ......... Page 4 of 4


PLEASE HELP ME IF ANY ONE KNOWS ABOUT ITS SOLUTION.

I HAVE SEARCHED FOR IT EVERYWHERE IN THE WORD.
