Okay I'm going to show you how you can add page numbers to a Word document starting at a specific page so I have an example of the end result here where I have a title page with no numbers I have a table of contents with no numbering and then with my introduction there is a page number of one and the next page is 2 3 and so on so what you need to do for this is scroll down to that page that you want the numbering to start on and you're just going to click rate at the very beginning of the page then go to the page Layout tab and then over to breaks and then down to the next page so what that actually did was if you go to the Home tab and then this paragraph marks icon and click on that if you scroll up a bit you'll see that there's a section break so basically what we've done is separated the word document into two separate sections that we can kind of format differently so I'm just going to uncheck that now so the next step is to go to the insert tab and then go over to page number and I'm going to put mine at the bottom of the page and right in the center so now you can see it starts at 3 but I wanted to start at 1 so what I'm going to do is go over to here go to page number format page numbers and start at 1 and click OK so the next step is to uncheck or unlink the page that you're on and the page before it so just click this link to previous just click it once and you'll see that it Sun highlighted now so now you can scroll up and this is my table of contents page and I don't want any numbering on here so at the very bottom of the footer I'm just going to highlight this too and hit the lead on my keyboard so now you'll see that there's no numbering on the table of contents and there's also no numbering on any of the pages that came before it alright so that's it you can go to the print preview to see it in action and title page no numbering say with the table of contents the introduction now is a page number of 1 the next page is 2 so everything works perfectly that's it thanks for watching.

FAQ

How do I add the page number on a Word document along with the page header?
How do I insert a page number without removing the header? italic Easy open the header and add the PAGE field code to wherever you want it. horizontal-rule That the best italic way to do it but it is not the way Word user interface tends to ge people. Instead most people learn to use options from the Insert Page Number drop-down menu to insert an automatic page number with various formatting options already set up. That works but it normally wipes out any existing header (or footer). Moreover depending on which of the many options you choose you may end up with a page number within a floating box or shape associated with the header. (Hard to understand why Microsoft developers decided that italic would be the easier method) Instead create the header you want and where you need a page number press Ctrl-F9 to add the field code braces then page . Select the footer and press Alt-F9 to toggle from the field code view to the result. Your page number will be there. You could also use Insert Quick Parts Field and scroll down to select the Page field code. This gives you additional options to set the page number format and doesn need the toggle step. Why would you want to manage it yourself? italic Because you have more control. Consider the following header strategy for a book Your Header style could be set up with a centered tab (for the chapter and book title) and a right tab at the right margin. The Footer style could just be set centered. In the Page Setup dialog Layout tab you turn on both the Different odd and even and Different first page checkboxes to allow you to have the 3 headers and one footer described above. The first page header would be empty but as noted with space before of 72pt to push the chapter title down on the chapter starting pages. The first page footer would just be the Page field code. The Even page header would be Page field code tab chapter title. The Odd page header would be tab book title tab Page field code. And if you use styles for the chapter number and title you can use StyleRef field codes to automatically pull the chapter number and title so you won need to define new even page headers for each chapter.
If I add page numbers manually to my book will Amazon Direct publishing print it? Word is not cooperating with adding numbers.
Sigh Ok. For the record this italic is why self-publishers are generally looked down upon by real publishers they don know which tools they really need in their toolbox and they don know how to use the wrong tools well enough to fake it. Also Word isn not cooperating with you. It inanimateputer software; it does only what you tell it to do. If it not doing what you want then the problem exists between keyboard and chair not in the software. Im sure telepathic mind-reading software is in progress over in the R&D department but for now youll just have to make do But yes if you can figure out how to use Word well enough to insert page numbers (hint it in the headers options) then Amazon Direct will be able to print it. Whether it looks any good depends on how well you learn to use Word. Better yet (pro tip) learn to use InDesign learn about book design and create your own print-ready PDFs instead of relying on Amazon to make sense (badly) of whatever youve klooged together (badly) in Word. There a saying in most process-driven endeavors garbage in; garbage out. If you give the process garbage to start from you can expect gold at the other end. At the risk of getting my answer deleted as spam I refer you to Glen Edelstein of Hudson Valley Book Design; he a top flight publishing pro with real world Big 5 experience but a very reasonable rate sheet favorable to indies. And he a dear to work with. Look him up.
