Default Different page numbers on same page

Is there a way to use different page numbers on the same page. For example, a section page number at the top header and a document page number in the footer. When I change one, it changes both.

Look into the SectionPages field. (There is no SectionPage field. You need to restart numbering and use the Page field.)

Here is more background on the fields involved: Pagination Fields

See the solution to this where dual page x of y formatting was also needed in Greg Maxey's page on Page Numbering. This deals with the page number in the document as well as page number in the section. I.e.

Section Page 12 of 17
Document Page 43 of 312

I entered the text just as show in the Formula box but never could get the page number to show up. I entered the page number as normal and selected edit field. Then, selected the "=(Formula)" in the list and entered the text in the Formula properties. Should I be doing this a different way?

Using Fields in Microsoft Word


The field delimiter braces { } cannot simply be typed. They must be inserted by Word. The most frequent way to do this is with the Ctrl+F9 Keyboard shortcut.
