  1. I tried so many times to paginate various Word 10 documents, including having my name along with the page number at top of every page except the first. I have looked it up many times and wasted hours unsuccessfully trying to do it. Finally, the directions here WORKED! So, THANK YOU... I am grateful for the detailed and easy to read and understand directions.
