Hi all, I understand about the page numbers-and what they are, but here is my question. Let's say the page (where the page break is "suppose" to be is 121 and the numeric page is 101 (usually i find this next to the author's name or the title) I go up and find no page break above that line with the numeric number and author's name is. This is happening in a great part of the book I am validating, so am i supposed to add the page breaks and if so, where do i add them and how. I know the command in word is control+enter. Does anyone understand what i am saying? I have "normal checked" in the view. I did this after looking at "Jake's hints". thanks Linda k.
