Great! I see some steps I was missing so maybe I can get more done now. Thanks.----- Original Message ----- From: "Jamie Yates" <jamieyates@xxxxxxxxxxx>

Hi Dan, here is how I made the macros. You have to make 10 of them and the way I do it, I run each macro several times. Like a 200 page book has about 20 page numbers that end in each number. I did each macro only to do about 5 pages each but you can make your macro to do as many as you want. In word, in a book (even if it already has the blank line between the end of text and the page number, it doesn't matter for making the macro) you do these steps: Position your cursor near the beginning of the book (past the copyright stuff) but before any page numbers. Press the Alt-T keys to bring up the tools menu. Press M for Macro, and R for Record a macro. Name the Macro (I named mine PageNumber1, PageNumber2, etc.) by typing the name of it and hit enter. Now any keys you type now are going to be in your macro so you have to do it carefully. This one will insert a blank line between the end of the text and the page number. This is if your page numbers are at the bottom of the page. Press Ctrl-F for Find. Type 1^p (that will find all number 1 with a paragraph mark after it [and yes sometimes this won't be a page number, sometimes it will be a Chapter 1, Chapter 11, etc but I do not thinkt he extra blank lines there hurt anything]) and press enter. Press Escape Home Enter (what that does is escapes out of the find box, home moves it to the beginning of the line and enter puts a blank line before the page number) Now Press Ctrl-F for Find. Press Enter twice (to find the second occurance of the 1 with a paragraph mark after it). Press Escape Home Enter. Repeat the above step 3 more times. You have done the find and replace 5 times. Stop recording your macro by: Alt-T for Tools, M for Macro, R for stop Recording macro. Now, to finish doing the page number 1's in your book, press Alt-F8 to bring up the macro box, and I arrow down to the macro I want and press enter. You can click on the macro you want, but if you can't see your screen you probably don't do that. Arrow down to the macro you want and press enter works just fine. If you have a 200 page book you'll want to run the PageNumber1 macro 4 times total for 20 occurances of the pages with 1 paragraph mark. When you're making the macro you'll only run it 3 times because the first time you made the macro you took care of five of the occurances. Then you'll want to make a macro for Page Number 2, 3, 4 etc and don't forget 0. The short steps without my explanations are: Alt-T M R Type: PageNumber1 press enter Ctrl-F 1^p press enter Escape Home Enter (Begin the part you repeat) Ctrl-F 1^p press enter twice Escape Home Enter (End the part you repeat) Repeat three more times the above sequence Alt-T M R (to stop recording the macro) To run the macro Alt-F8 Arrow down to the macro you want and press enter Hope that helps. My direct email is jamieyates@xxxxxxxxxxx and you can email me or ask here I do not mind. If you wanted to make a macro to do the page numbers at the top of the page that don't have a blank line between the page number and the beginning of the text, instead of Escape Home Enter you would Escape END Enter And then for step 2 you would not Ctrl-F Enter Enter because you would skip a page number. You would Alt-T M R Ctrl-F 1^p Escape End Enter Ctrl-F 1^p Escape End Enter Ctrl-F 1^p Escape End Enter Ctrl-F 1^p Escape End Enter Ctrl-F 1^p Escape End Enter Alt-T M R Then run the macro. I haven't done this one yet since I've only had page numbers at the bottom which needed a blank line between the end of the text and the page number but I'm sure I will need a top of the page number macro soon too. It is a little time consuming to make the macros but once you do it makes inserting blank lines between the text and page number very fast. And you can make your macro more than 5 at a time too if you want. It just depends on how big you think the books will be. If you know you always do books that are 200 pages or more maybe you want it to do 10 at a time. let me know if I can clear it up better.
