Chapter-Page Numbers Appear Only in One Section


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 6.0, 6.0a, 6.0c


The chapter number portion of a page number will appear only in the section of the document that the insertion point was in when you selected the Include Chapter Number option. (This option is in the Format Page Number dialog box. To locate this option, choose Page Numbers from the Insert menu, and choose the Format button.)


When you insert page numbers into a document, they will be placed in all the headers or footers for all sections of the document regardless of the current selection in the document. However, the format options for page numbers are section properties and, thus, apply only to the sections that are selected when the formatting is applied. (Format options are those available in the Format Page Number dialog box. They include Number Format, Include Chapter Number, and the page numbering start options.)

If you insert page numbers and select Include Chapter Number when the insertion point is located in a single section, Word places page numbers in all sections, but only the section containing the insertion point will have a chapter number included with the page number.

To apply a chapter-page number format (or other page number format) to the whole document, choose Select All from the Edit menu before making page number formatting choices.
