Microsoft Word provides you with the option of selecting a numbering style (e.g. “Roman Numeral”, “Arabic”) & gives you the option of selecting the “starting at” number. You can mix the page numbers for your entire document, or if you need more control, you can do it section-by-section as well.

If you are writing a Rackham dissertation, you have more complicated pagination. For example, Rackham’s guidelines require that the page numbers begin on the third or fourth page of your document (depending on if you include a graphical frontispiece) và the page number on that page should be Roman numeral “ii”. Page numbering should continue on in roman numerals until the first page of Chapter 1 is reached. At that point, the numbering should restart in Arabic (“1, 2, 3…”).

To accomplish this, we are going to divide the document into different “sections”, break them apart (so they can have different page number formatting), và then showroom the page numbers.
