Field codes: Page field

The Page field inserts the number of the page that the Page field is located on. Word inserts the Page field when you click Page Number in the Header & Footer group on the Insert tab and click a page number in one of the galleries.

Note: The PAGE field does not count beyond 32,767.

Syntax

When you view the Page field in your document, the syntax looks like this:

{ PAGE [\* Format Switch ] }

Note:  A field code tells the field what to show. Field results are what’s shown in the document after having evaluated the field code. To toggle between viewing the field code and the field code results, press Alt+F9.

Switches
