I often use Microsoft Word’s Mail Merge feature to prepare long documents for Learners. I noticed that upon completion of the merge that the page numbering for the final, merged document was incorrect where I had used Page x of y page numbering.
What I was expecting was for the numbering for each document to be preserved. In the instance of a 12-page document for 10 records I expected to see Page x of 12 repeated 10 times in the merged document — what I ended up with was page x of 120.
