Hi, Hi!!

Thought I had it licked, but, as usual, I seem to be missing something.

So, I have my footer Page # of [NUMPAGES}. However, this document
(about 14 pages) has 2 pages at the front (title page and blank page
following it), then the page numbering is set to start at 1. However, for
numpages I get 16 (the total number of pages that get printed), rather than
14 (the number of pages of actual text for the document). Being used to
Frame, I thought that setting the starting page number for the section
(defined as such in Word) would cause the internal page counter to be reset,
but this is obviously not the case. (God, I miss Frame.)

One person (Thanks, Janet R.) in her response to my previous
question, suggested using Insert / Page Numbers - Format, but I end up with
nothing but syntax errors.

My sense is that I need to have Page # of NUMPAGES - 2, but don't
know how to get this.
