Default page numbering across multiple documents


i've to about 17 word documents that i've had to separate because of file size. i want the pages numbers to run from the first document to the 17th document. how do i do this without using a master document? the master document crashes all the time.

How about just using the menu Insert | Page Numbers. click Format, enter a number in the Start at box.

There is a drawback though, if one document changes page count, the following pages have to be adjusted manually.

yeah....i'm trying to avoid that, cause this set of documents will always have pages being taken in and out of it.

I think you need some VBA code to achieve this, sorry I'm not a VBA programmer and can't give you the exact code, maybe other members can help you out.

The code will do something like: Get the last page number of the previous file, then use it to set starting page number for current file.
