"Does the total page # code in MS Word suck (Word 2000)?"

Yes, and it was goofy in a different way in Word97, and omitted completely
in the original release of Word95. I don't know what happened prior to Word
95, because (fortunately), I was spared the agony of using Word before then.

I haven't figured out a workaround. My guess is that it's a bug that may
someday get fixed.

"Or am I completely dense?"

I wouldn't rule that out just yet ;o)

the last time."

literature was full of examples that said you can't do this."
