Returns a PageNumber object that represents page numbers added to a header or footer in a section.
If the LinkToPrevious property for the HeaderFooter object is set to True, the page numbers will continue sequentially from one section to next throughout the document.
With ActiveDocument.Sections(1) .Footers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).PageNumbers.Add _ PageNumberAlignment:=wdAlignPageNumberLeft, _ FirstPage:=True End With
The following arguments are optional
FirstPage - False to make the first-page header and the first-page footer different from the headers and footers on all subsequent pages in the document. If FirstPage is set to False, a page number isn't added to the first page. If this argument is omitted, the setting is controlled by the DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter property
