Customer Question

I have a large document--about 150 pages with 11 sections. I created Sections 1-7 of this policy manual first and now I have four more sections to add (8-11). I have been using footers with this numbering scheme (1-1, 1-2, 1-3 etc. for chapter 1; 2-1, 2-2, 2-3etc. for chapter 2 and so on).

For some reason, now that I have added new sections, it does not want to automatically number my pages correctly. It is picking up 7-1 for the last four sections of the manual. Can you help?

The-PC-Guy :

Thanks for using JustAnswer. My name isXXXXX will do whatever I can to answer your question

The-PC-Guy :

The-PC-Guy :

Are you using page numbers? or footers?

The-PC-Guy :

The-PC-Guy :

and what version of Word are you using?

Customer :

Word 2010 and using footers

Customer :

Customer :

ANDREW ARE YOU WORKING ON A RESPONSE? JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE I AM STILL CONNECTED TO YOU.

The-PC-Guy :

ok

The-PC-Guy :

i would like to offer to do a remote screen sharing session, where I would be able to temporarily take control of your mouse and keyboard.

The-PC-Guy :

I could then show you the way that I would set this up

The-PC-Guy :

would you be interested in this?

Customer :

I can't do that from the work computer.

The-PC-Guy :

ok

The-PC-Guy :

could you send the document?

The-PC-Guy :

i am just trying to save some time rather than trying to walk you through this blind

Customer :

yes

The-PC-Guy :

but I can work with whatever you are able to do

Customer :

I can send it if you provide an e-mail address

The-PC-Guy :

i could do that

The-PC-Guy :

or to save some time

The-PC-Guy :

do you have a paperclip icon at the top of your chat window

The-PC-Guy :

??

Customer :

no i don't see one

The-PC-Guy :

which browser are you using?

The-PC-Guy :

just out of curiosity

Customer :

IE

The-PC-Guy :

hmm, you should see it.

The-PC-Guy :

but lets do this another way

The-PC-Guy :

www.wikisend.com

The-PC-Guy :

if you upload to that website

The-PC-Guy :

they give you a download link

The-PC-Guy :

then paste that link here

Customer :

Where should the paperclip link be?

The-PC-Guy :

top of the window you are typing in

The-PC-Guy :

im not sure if its supported by all browsers

Customer :

All I have is a Question mark and Help

Customer :

wait, i see it below our chat

The-PC-Guy :

oh, its on top in mine

The-PC-Guy :

i am using firefox or chrome

The-PC-Guy :

anyway

The-PC-Guy :

says image

The-PC-Guy :

but you should be able to attach a doc file

Customer :

See if you can get into that one. The first seven sections of the headers and footers are fine. When I get to section 8, it is out of whack

The-PC-Guy :

give me a min

The-PC-Guy :

okay looking at it now

Customer :

Having any luck?

Customer :

I will have to shut this computer down at 3:45.

The-PC-Guy :

ok

The-PC-Guy :

i am still working on it

The-PC-Guy :

Customer :

Can you e-mail me back at a different address?

The-PC-Guy :

Hello,

I’m a moderator for this topic. It seems the Professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Rachel
