Exel page footer sequence &[Page

by zanada / October 1, 2015 10:41 AM PDT

From print proerties if I want to add page footer..as such (&[Page) ...
it adds sequentially a litle red number on bottom right of the page. This works fine
I wish to break the sequence at one point to include .5
example
1
2
3
4.5
5
6

Is it possible or I need to manually place it one page at a time?
thanks

For such work, I edit it manually and get it done.

In a similar case I printed pages 1,2,3,5,6 then edited it to have the .5 and printed page 4.

When an office mate wondered how I did this, they lost days trying to duplicate it.

I'd say 4.5 isn't a valid pagenumber, so I think Excel won't generate it.

What you can do: print to pdf or xps and change it using your favorite pdf- or xps-editor in the output.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
