I cannot insert page numbers in MS Word 2007

by sandutzzz / July 11, 2007 4:48 AM PDT


I have been trying to insert page numbers in MS Word 2007 by going to Insert tab on the ribon, but there I could not see any page number designs in the gallery. I then went to MS Word Help and the troubleshooter told me to go to Word Options, then to Add-ins and to reenable the Building Bolcks.dotx But the thing is, there is no Building Blocks.dotx in the disabled add-ins list. What should I do? Of course I I kept the old MS Office 2000 when installing the 2007, so I can first create a new document in OFFICE 2000 with page numbers and then open it with OFFICE 2007 and then do what I have to do, but you know.. that's stupid, why did I buy the new one for then?!!

I would be very, very thankful if someone could tell me how to reactivate this important function.

I wanted to thank you for your help! I got pretty desperate when I reinstalled MS OFFICE 2007 and the problem persisted, and thought repairing it wouldn't do it any good, but here I am, with a fully functional MS OFFICE! Thank you once again!
