If you View/Header and Footer then click on Insert Auto Text, the
bottom option says Page X of Y and will insert this information
automatically. However, my version of Word has a tendency to reset the page
count (Y) to 1 for no reason that I can figure out. If anyone knows why it
does this, please let me know. In the meantime have a great Christmas and
