How to set the starting page number in the header or footer in Excel
The starting page number for a Microsoft Excel document can be changed by clicking the Page Setup command. Using the following commands in the header or footer prints a starting page number other than 1.
|&P+##||Substitute a number for the number signs (#) to increment the page numbers by that amount.|
|&P-##||Substitute a number for the number signs (#) to decrement the page numbers by that amount.|
For example, to start page numbering at page 3, type the following in the header or footer section of the Page Setup dialog box:
"&P+2" (without the quotation marks)
You must type a space after the 2 in this example.
