Inserting page number in OpenOffice Writer

Inserting page number in OpenOffice Writer is not as straight-forward process as in Microsoft Word. But never fret, the process is quite easy actually but just involved extra steps in OpenOffice. First we need to add header or footer in our pages depending on where we want the page number to appear. Do this by clicking:

Insert > Header > Default or Insert > Footer > Default

Next, add the page number by doing this:

Insert > Fields > Page Number

That’s all it takes to add page number in OpenOffice Writer.

    There was a problem with doing this if I remember correctly, it only works for two pages, after that it repeats. Then again I might have screwed up, cant remember. Will get back to you once i install open office again

    Which version of OpenOffice did you try this on? I’ve tried this on both OpenOffice 2.0 and OpenOffice 2.2 and both worked perfectly well
