Subject:Skipping page numbering - using Word 97 From:Constance Whitesell <Cjwhitesel -at- AOL -dot- COM> Date:Tue, 29 Dec 1998 09:02:37 EST
1. To suppress page numbering on specific pages, set them off from the
surrounding text with section breaks (Insert menu), then remove page numbering
from the headers/footers. Be sure to check This Section rather than Whole
Document (Open View menu, click Headers and Footers, then click the Page Setup
2. Are you generating a TOC based on styles? If so, create a style identical
to the heading style being picked up by the TOC. For example, you might create
AltHeading1 and AltHeading2, assign these styles to headings you don't want to
appear in the TOC, then leave these styles unselected when defining the TOC
(Insert menu>Index and Tables>Options).
Hope this helps.
