Double pagination of document within larger document

by jloew / February 15, 2004 7:10 PM PST

When I have a small "independent" document within a larger document (for instance, a guideline within a document explaining the development of that guideline), how can I both paginate for the independent doc (e.g., 4 out of 20) and for the overall doc on the same page (e.g., 61 out of 352)? Similarly, how can I set up a Table of Contents for the smaller, independent doc, based on the paginating of that doc and NOT the overall document?

Thanks, James Loewenstein

Look at "sections." You can control such to apply to just this or that section. As to the TOC, you may not want to know that the TOC is a simple bit of Visual Basic for Applications CODE that you could write your own, but most find it easier to just create there own custom TOC.

A page in Word has only one pageno, which doesn't seem very unreasonable.

I can only suggest two things you probably won't like too much.

1. Print the smaller document, scan it and make a bmp or gif from each page, reducing it's size to about 90%. Then in your overall document, include the bmp and gif as a picture, one on each page.

2. Add the smaller document as an appendix to the overall document. An appendix in general has it's own page numbering scheme. Not need to put everything in one document, just combine the prints.

Both methods give a reasonably professional looking result, I think.
