Field codes: Section field

The Section field inserts the number of the current section.

Syntax

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

{ SECTION }

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.

Example

To print text such as "Page 4 of Section 2" on each page of a document, insert the following fields and text in the header or footer:

Page { PAGE } of Section { SECTION }
