Hi Shirley,

This is how I do it.

  1. Alt I to Insert menu then arrow down to header and footer submenu and open it(right arrow).
  2. Arrow down to page number and press spacebar
  3. There are two submenus there, “Top” and “Bottom”
  4. On the Top submenu, right arrow and then arrow down to plain number 2 then hit enter
  5. you can then type in your header then hit tab to get good spacing between the header and the numbering
  6. then I do an alt H and escape twice. I haven’t figure out how to get out of editing the header mode. This work for me. HTH

Hi everyone,


Can someone please tell me how to put numbers on a header that will progress with each new page. I have been able to type something on my headers, but adding a number is getting me frustrated. Everything comes out page 1. I know it can be done, but I haven’t tried it before with Office 2019—which is what I have now.
