I use Word 2002.

How do I format page numbering in a document that has

- a title page, for which I want no page number,

- a few pages of table of contents, for which I want Roman numbers starting with ii, and

- the rest of the document for which I want Arabic page numbers displayed as page x of y, centered on the footer, with x starting at 1 and y being the total number of Arabic numbered pages (i.e., not counting the title page and table of contents)?

I tried inserting a section page break at the end of the table of contents pages, then using the header/footer pagexofy insert, formatting the first page as number 1 and manually replacing the total number of pages, but the table of contents pages stil showed as Arabic numbers.

There is no automatic way to do that. You can set a different first page, but the i ii iii is the killer. Im pretty sure office 2007 can do this, but Ive never seen anyone do it with 2k.

The simplest way would be to have 2 different documents. First one has different first page with no header, then the i ii iii numbering, and the second document has the page x of y numbering.

Its View->Header and Footer.
