Non-standard page numbers


A

alpaca

I am attempting to re-create an existing book, and so have to follow th
book's styles and conventions. It's a genealogy book, and the perso
who created it used the left (even) page to print text about the person
and the right (odd) page to print a small chart showing the person'
heritage. So with the book open to any spot, everything about any give
person is shown on the left and right pages of the open book. Great.

However, guess how he numbered the pages? The left and right pages ar
THE SAME number. Which kind of makes sense for this type of book an
record.

My problem is obvious: Can I somehow tell Word that the page numbe
should increment on every OTHER page, rather than every page as i
usual?

For example, opening the book to a random point, the page numbe
progression is:

3.7
3.7
3.8
3.8
4.1
4.1
4.2
4.2

I think I can handle the formatting of the two-page page number; Wor
has an option for that kind of (chapter) numbering. But how do I tel
Word repeat every page number once?

Or is there a better/different approach to take to the problem.

Thanks for whatever help you can provide
