Word Footer Page x of y Conversion Error - Adobe Acrobat Macintosh

Condition: A multipage Word doent with a standard page x of y footer becomes page y of y when converted via toolbar PDF File Maker--thus page 2 of a 10 page doent is "page 2 of 2", etc. HOWEVER: that same doent, when printed directly to the PDF printer, retains correct pagination in the generated PDF doent. MBP 10.4.8, 2GB Word 2004 11.3 Acrobat Pro 7.0.9 Advice would be most welcome. I see many posts re problems with links in footers, but not re pagination. Larry...

    Default Re: Word Footer Page x of y PDF Conversion Error

    I also convert word doents via toolbar of PDFMaker. But never came across this condition.
    So when you encounter this problem, what happens to the pages beyond y. for example in your case what happens to page 3 of 10, page 4 of 10...etc.

    Is there any setting you used in Page setup of word application?

    Default Re: Word Footer Page x of y PDF Conversion Error

    What happens to pages beyond y: the results are page 3 of 3; page 4 of 4; page 5 of 5, and so on--instead of 3 of 10; 4 of 10; 5 of 10, and so on. My Page setup in Word is strictly plain vanilla/standard default. Thus: Settings: Page Attributes. Format For: Adobe PDF 7.0; Paper Size: US Letter.

    These standard settings produce normal footer pagination in Word on sequential pages, and they produce normal pagination in a PDF doent that is printed to the PDF printer instead of PDF Maker. Only in PDF Maker do I get 1 of 1, 2 of 2, 3 of 3, etc. I should add that if I do the page # only, i.e. not "page x of y", the page #s generate correctly: 1, 2, 3, etc. It's only the "page x of y" autotext that creates the problem.
