I have a large document and I would like to skip the page numbering

every other page. So start at page 1, next page no page numbering, page 2,

no page number, etc.

I know you can delete the link between the pages, but than you have to

insert the page numbering by hand. Can I do this so the page numbering is

done automatically?

    • Check the "Different odd and even" option (Layout tab of the Page Setup

      dialog box)for headers and footers and then insert a page number for the odd

      pages only.

    • So you want pages numbered as follows:

      page 1 numbered as 1

      page 2 not numbered

      page 3 numbered as 2

      page 4 not numbered

      page 5 numbered as 3

      page 6 not numbered

      page 7 numbered as 4

      etc. If I understand the question correctly, then:

      In Word 2003 or earlier, open your document, click on

      File | Page Setup | Layout tab | check the "Different

      odd and even" box | OK. In the odd-page header or

      footer where you want the page numbers to appear,

      insert a calculated page number field:

      { = { = { page } + 1 } / 2 }

      but do not type the curly braces; instead, insert each

      pair by pressing Ctrl+F9. When you've finished entering

      the page number field, press Alt+F9 to switch back to

      display of field results (the page number) instead of

      field codes.

    • Note, however, that calculated page numbers will not display in a table of

      contents.
