Help! Page Numbering in Word?

I'm reading the instructions for my final and the Professor wants the pages numbered "1 of 15, 2 of 15, 3 of 15," etc.

I know how to put page numbers on the pages, but I have NO idea how to do it in the format that she has requested. The Help feature was not much *help* to me.

Any tips?

In Word 2010 goto Insert

then hit the Page Number Icon

I then hit Bottom of Page

and scroll down the options and you'll find formatting for Page X of X

Thanks for the quick response Moo. The instructions seem to indicate that she wants this on the top of the page, though, and I didn't see the "x of x" listed as an option. Am I just missing it? (if not, I'll just put the number on the bottom -- getting my page numbers in the proper place is the LEAST of my worries right now.....)

It should be an option for the top of page too. Just be sure after picking Top of Page to scroll down the styling options. The first set is "Page X" examples. You have to scroll down to get to "Page X of Y"

Go to Insert - Header - Edit Header

Then go to Insert - Quick Parts - Field

Select Page, then type the text " of " then again go to Insert - Quick Parts - Field and select NumPages

What the freakin' heck.

I finally figured out how to do the numbering (thanks to both of you)......BUT NOW the program won't let me put both (my ID # as a header & the page numbering) at the top of the page. I put one in and the other goes away.

This is so annoying.

eta: I figured it out. Not exactly sure *what* I did, but it worked. Thanks again.....I'm such an idiot when it comes to these darn programs....
