Does anyone have experience with the Word NUMPAGES field working onscreen but not in the printed document? Pages print as page 1 of 1, page 2 of 2, etc. More details:

This is a major bug in Word 2000. You need to download a patch from the MS website (I forget where; I fixed this two years ago) and install it. It takes about 45 minutes to install the patch, and requires the Office disk. I figure that American workplaces have lost millions of man-hours over this. Of course, MS doesn't care...
