  • Question

  • Folks,

    I know this may sound like a very simple thing; Yet, It is happening:

    My Word 2010 wouldn't response to any my attempt for inserting pager number;

    Also, It wouldn't show anything when I click to reqest the page number galary.

    I have re-install the software. Yet, the problem continue to exist.

    Does anyone know how to solve this.

  • Hi,

    First, we can try to use Alt + Shift + P to insert a Page Number.

    Second, follow the step also can insert the Page Number:

     Insert the fields yourself. For example:
      a. open your header and type “Page”, followed by a space
      b. Click ctrl + F9 to insert a pair of the special field code braces that look like {  }. You can't just type these on the keyboard or copy them from here.

      c. within the braces, type PAGE so you have: Page { PAGE }

    You can use Alt + F9 to toggle between viewing "field codes" and "field results", and if necessary, update field values by selecting the fields and pressing F9.

    If you want the number of pages, e.g. Page 1 of 5

      d. click after { PAGE }, then type " of "
      e. Insert another pair of field braces and type NUMPAGES between them, so you have: Page { PAGE } of { NUMPAGES }

  • As an attempt to resolve the underlying issue, try deleting the Building Blocks.dotx and Built-in Building Blocks.dotx file from your user profile. Exit Word first.

  • If you Cannot view your available options or features or gallery on the page number, header, or footer under the insert tab in Microsoft Word 2007, then follow these steps below: 

    1. Click on Click on control panel
    2. Click on Appearance and Personalization
    3. Click on Folder Options
    4. Click on Show hidden files and folders
    5. Select Show hidden files and folders and drives
    6. Select Apply
    7. Go to Start menu and in the box type this:  %appdata%
    8. Click on the Roaming folder
    9. Click on Microsoft Office
    10. Click on Document Building Blocks
    11. Move the 1033 folder over to your desktop and delete it after you see your gallery in the doc.

    If multiple icons or items show up on your desktop that were not there before you did this process, then follow steps 1-4 and select Don’t show hidden files, folders, or drives.

    -You should be good to go. Go to your Word doc and see if you are able to see the gallery.
