Where to Put a Page Number in Word 2007
Word 2007 can automatically number your pages and let you place the page number anywhere on the page (top, bottom, or sides) in a variety of formats. If you delete or renumber a page, Word automatically renumbers them for you.
On the Insert tab’s Header & Footer area, click the Page Number command button.
A menu drops down, listing various options. The first three are locations: Top of Page, Bottom of Page, and Page Margins (or sides of the page).
Choose where to place the page numbers.
This is based simply on personal preference.
Choose a page-numbering style from the scrolling list.
You can choose from a lot of samples. Scroll through the menu to choose the one you like best. You can then look at what you choose in the Print Layout view or Print Preview (Draft view hides the numbers).
