I simply want to paginate a large file, place the page number at the bottom of the page, and start the page number of my choice
Microsoft Office Technician: Richard, Software Specialist replied 3 years ago
Which version of Excel are you using?
Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I have used this version for about 4 years. I can probably go to programs to know which version but will have to leave this page. Is this necessary?
Microsoft Office Technician: Richard, Software Specialist replied 3 years ago
Maybe not, you need to add a footer
To do this in most versions.
Click Insert, Header / Footer and then in the footer you can select to put the page number.
Then on each page the page number is ***** out.
Let me know the results please

I have tried several times and no luck. There seems to be a step that was left out. One step was followed by a generated page of many id listing the chapter and a start page of 25. I installed a start number of 29 and 25 was never mentioned. The print-out started with 29 but simply repeated the same 29 on subsequent pages. Something isn't working. Can we start from scratch and be sure all steps are stated and in the order that works for me. I am certain that the problem is something I have messed up with. I am very appreciative of your help and your knowledge of Excel.
Microsoft Office Technician: Richard, Software Specialist replied 3 years ago
ok, tell me exactly what it is you want done please.
As I added page numbers, but you want something a little different?
Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
As I add chapters to my book, I need to start subsequent chapters with the sequential beginning number. I will paginate each chapter separately. The numbers need to change page to page, not simply repeat the same number on every page.
Microsoft Office Technician: Richard, Software Specialist replied 3 years ago
ok, thats way beyond what excels designed for, it is not a book or chapters program
One way you can do this is to make a new sheet for each chapter and put them in this, then you can set your own page numbers as you set the page number for that sheet.
Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I understand that Excel is not a book or chapters program. But large Excel files print out many pages and can be sequentially paged. That is all I ask. I do make out a print-out sheet for each new chapter. It has a format for selecting the page number, but it always relates to the document with reference to page 1 when in fact the chapter begins at 29 in this case. What I need is a simple way to paginate a Excel document beginning with a page number of my choice and to continue to paginate the remaining document sequentially.
Microsoft Office Technician: Richard, Software Specialist replied 3 years ago
ok, for just that you can add a number to the page number
So to start at 27, you insert the footer like I said
Click Insert, Header / Footer and then in the footer click at the top page number and you see appear
Then add +26
Make sure to do a space after the 26
This would make the first page 27
I did it for you under File ID 139102
Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
This is crazy. I need to start at page 29 and have been directed at first to start at 25. Where did that 25 come from? Now I am instructed to start at 26. I need to start at 29. How can I be clearer? Then I am instructed to add a + to 26 to make it a +26 and leave a space after the +26 to make it a 27. I guess 29 is not a possibility. And finally I am instructed to use File ID 139102. What happened to File ID 420206 and File ID 395486? Those numbers were given to be used in previous attempts to paginate this chapter. Please check with your supervisor to see if there is a solution to my simple request to paginate this chapter or if we are just wasting time for both of us. I don't blame you for the problem. You have worked hard and seriously tried to find a solution. We both have tried. I am game for one last try.
Microsoft Office Technician: Richard, Software Specialist replied 3 years ago
It was an example, if its page 29 then you just put in +28
The first ID was showing how to add page numbers.
The second showed how to set a custom page number.

It doesn't work. We do not have a satisfactory fix to the problem. I request a refund of the remainder of the $18 fee. I understand you will keep the booking deposit of $5. I am sorry it didn't work out. I will check my Visa account to be sure there is no charge for the balance of $13. If there is such a charge, I will begin a charge-back procedure. Your Tech tried his best and I appreciate his efforts. I have no negative evaluation for him. I have a complete print-out of our efforts today and will retain it until all details are finalized. I hope the rest of your day goes well for you.
Microsoft Office Technician: Richard, Software Specialist replied 3 years ago
It does work, your doing something wrong and not carrying out the instructions I repeated a number of times.
I even sent you a copy showing it working
Anyway, you get your refund here
