Default Custom Page Numbering for 11"x17" sheets

Fellow Forum Members,
Chapter 9 contains ten 11"x17" Foldouts Pages (FP). All preceding eight Chapters are 8.5"x11". For Chapter 9 my goal is to have page numbering that assigns a number for the EVEN blank foldout pages and displays it together with the ODD page number inside the footer. Additionally, I need a "9-" chapter number text to display together with the page number. Below is an example of what I trying to achieve:

FP: 9-1 / (FP: 9-2 Blank)
FP: 9-3 / (FP: 9-4 Blank)
FP: 9-5 / (FP: 9-6 Blank)
FP: 9-7 / (FP: 9-8 Blank)
FP: 9-9 / (FP: 9-10 Blank)

Below is the Field coding I inputted using "Alt+F9 and Cntrl+F9" commands:

Code:
FP:{ PAGE } / (FP:{ = { PAGE } + 1 } Blank)
The problem is the field code does not recognize my settings inside the Page Number > Format Page Numbering > Page Number Format dialog window. In this window I have a checkmark applied to the "Include chapter number" button. Also for "Start at:" I have the radio button selected and set to "1". Below is an example of the output I get on each of the footers:

FP: 1 / (FP: 2 Blank)
FP: 3 / (FP: 4 Blank)
FP: 5 / (FP: 6 Blank)


FP: 7 / (FP: 8 Blank)
FP: 9 / (FP: 10 Blank)

My hope is somebody in this community can help me identify what the problem is with the "9-" text not displaying together with the page number even though it is defined in the Page Number Format window.

Additionally, does Microsoft Word 365 have a { CHAPTER } field I can use so I can bypass using the Page Number Format window? If such a field existed it could hypothetically be used as shown in the example below:

Code:
FP:{ CHAPTER } - { PAGE } / (FP:{ = { CHAPTER } - { PAGE } + 1 } Blank)
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Partial response. Word has no { CHAPTER } Field. It does have a { SECTION } field.

Assuming that you restarted your page numbering at the beginning of Chapter 9 and that you have five actual Word pages that are being treated as your ten folio pages:

So each sheet has a single footer stretching across the 17 inches.
You want the footer on the left (bound) part to have the odd page and on the fly-out to have the even page number..

Odd page part of footer:
FP: 9-{ = { PAGE } * 2 - 1 }

Even page part of footer:

FP: 9-{ = { PAGE } * 2 }

I've attached a document with those field codes. Note that as far as Word is concerned, in the Table of Contents and other reference pages these will be pages 1-5.

Charles,
Thank you for both of your posts. I looked over both of the links and no ideas came to my head by looking over the content. The Section field does not output the Chapter Number I need so I don't think I can use that field together with the { PAGE } field.


Thanks for your file. I have uploaded an Example file of my own to clarify what I am seeking to accomplish. Essentially, I need both ODD and EVEN numbering to display in the lower right hand corner of the ODD page. Additionally, the EVEN page on the backside needs to remain 100% blank. The plan is to add some large graphics on all ODD pages and leave the backside EVEN page as blank paper.

Your idea of adding a "9-" as text in front of the curly bracket is something I thought about myself however I got to thinking that most likely the TOC and cross references will display the tabloid pagination as "1" and not "9-1". I will have to test this out.

I pray that I am wrong, but I am starting to believe MicroSoft Word seems to be unable to support the Tabloid numbering scheme I need.

Any additional ideas will be greatly appreciated.

Time for me to be asleep.
I confirm that the TOC and Index will get the page numbers wrong. They would skip the 9 but would also ignore the calculations.


Are you printing both sides of the 11x17 paper?

So 9-3 would be the back side of 9-2 and 9-4 would be the back side of 9-1?


It has been many years since I've had a printer that could handle that!

The chapter numbering noted in the Format Page Numbers will show up in the TOC and Index. You need to use one of the heading styles to mark the beginning of the chapter.

(If the heading does not show up in the Navigation Pane, it is not being applied correctly. Write back.)

Charles,
Thanks for your postings. Did you see my attached Example file? It shows the setup I am trying to accomplish. Nevertheless, I hope the explanation below answer your question:


FP: 9-1 / (FP: 9-2 Blank) -> 9-1 is the front side of the page where the JPG is placed / 9-2 is the backside of the same page which is left blank.
FP: 9-3 / (FP: 9-4 Blank) -> 9-3 is the front side of the page where the JPG is placed / 9-4 is the backside of the same page which is left blank.
FP: 9-5 / (FP: 9-6 Blank) -> 9-5 is the front side of the page where the JPG is placed / 9-6 is the backside of the same page which is left blank.
FP: 9-7 / (FP: 9-8 Blank) -> 9-7 is the front side of the page where the JPG is placed / 9-8 is the backside of the same page which is left blank.
FP: 9-9 / (FP: 9-10 Blank) -> 9-9 is the front side of the page where the JPG is placed / 9-10 is the backside of the same page which is left blank.


I realize my uploaded Example File does not show the Outline Numbered Headings as shown in Shauna Kelly's graphic below. However, in my working final file I already have Outline Numbered headings setup as shown in the graphic below. Nevertheless, I will recheck my headings to make sure.







My question to anybody in the community. Is there a Field Code formula that can accomplish the custom numbering I am trying to accomplish? If yes please share it. Thank you to everybody for viewing this thread.
