Hi Shweta,

What you described sounds like the {NUMPAGES} field bug which affected both Word 97 and 2000. I've encountered it, too.

For info on Microsoft's SR-1 fix and other workarounds, see

http://www.microsoft.com/office/sup/support.asp?lu=1&prd=word

Unfortunately, if you're distributing your document widely, these solutions probably won't really help you. That is, it won't be practical for every user to install SR-1, and instructing users to update fields manually or to disable background printing seems rather unwieldy to me.

You might be able to write a Word VBA macro that automatically updates document fields prior to printing. However, I believe you can distribute macros only to users who designate you as a trusted source and/or who set their machines to medium or low security in (Word) Tools > Macro > Security.

What a nuisance! Up to now, I've dealt with the problem by simply not using the {NUMPAGES} field in my documents...

Good luck!

Hi all !!

I am facing a weird problem in MS-Word 97. I have a document where the pages
are numbered in the format 'Page X of Y'. Now every time I make changes in
the document the 'Y' appears as 1 (one) though the number of total pages are
more. Thus it would appear as 'Page 34 of 1'. Everytime I have to update this
field to get the right figure. Could you please decipher what is the problem
and suggest me the solution.

Thanks in advance.
