    I am writing a legal brief, and I need to have different numbering systems for each section of my brief, but I can't figure out how to do it in Office 2008. One for the cover page, roman for the table, and arabic for the rest.

    Any help out there?

    If you've created a Word section break for each section (!) then seems like you're better off using/putting the page numbering in the header/footer....

    download the Bend Word to your will document from MVP and look at around page 60...

    Yes, use Section Break.

    You should then be able to create unique numbering for each Section.

    You'll also need to do this:

    On the View menu, click Print Layout.
    On the Insert menu, click Page Numbers.
    Click Format.
    In the Start at box, enter a number, and then click OK.

    Notes
    If your document is divided into sections, click in the section where you want to change the starting page number.
    You can number each section in a document independently.
