MS Word 2000 Auto Text Problem

By Ritchie Analyst ·
I have a User who whenever he uses the Auto Text Field "Page x of y", in a footer, gets a Page x of x result when printing, e.g. a three page document would be numbered 1 of 1, 2 of 2 etc. I have reinstalled Word, and no-one else on the NW has this problem.
The strange points are that it works fine if you print from the Print preview page and it works fine if it is not in a header/footer.
Can anyone help as I am beginning to feel abit stupid.
Many thanks
Richard

In Word, tools->options. On the Print tab, check "Update fields". On the General tab, check "Background repagination."

I'm inclined to think it's the first one, but I have both these checked and don't have the problem, so...

Tried every aspect of formatting, options, tweaking and swearing at screen!
cheers for taking the time to give me your opinion though,
