Counting the number of pages in a Word document without the front page

To count the number of pages in a MS Word document without the front page you do the following

  1. Press Ctrl+F9. Word inserts an empty set of field code braces
  2. Type an equal sign and a space
  3. Press Ctrl+F9 again. Word inserts another empty set of field code braces
  4. Type NUMPAGES and a space.
  5. Position the insertion point just between the final two right braces.
  6. Type a minus sign and a 1. Your field code for the Y page number should now look very similar to this: { = { NUMPAGES } – 1 }
  7. Press Shift+F9 to collapse the fields.

The “1” may be exchanged for any other number if you want. SECTIONPAGES may be used to get the number of pages in a section of a document.
