Let's say I have a 6 page document. (MS Word)

I want the first 3 pages to be numbered i, ii, iii
and the remaining 3 pages to be numbered 1, 2, 3

How can I achieve this?

I tried the automatic numbering option from office, but I can only have 1 numbering style. And I don't want to do it manually, because my document has so many pages that it will be very time consuming.

    If you're referring to Word, you need to insert a Section Start on your fourth page (where you want it to start 1,2,3). – Lauren Ipsum Apr 6 '16 at 16:58
  • sorry, just edited my question. Yes i was referring to Word. Can you please explain how do i do that? – Mohdak Apr 6 '16 at 17:00

  • Next you might consider asking questions like this on Super User, where it's more solidly on topic. – Neil Fein Jul 11 '16 at 2:59

Haven't done this lately and I don't have Word on this machine, so this may not be 100% accurate, but:

Insert a section break (new page) at the point where the numbering should change. Go into headers/footers. Insert a field for page numbers where you want it in the first section, formatted as Roman numerals. Go to the next section (there's a button somewhere to do that). Turn off the thing that says same header/footer as previous section. Insert page numbers in this section, formatted as Arabic numerals.

Specific interface details will depend on what version of Word you have. Look around in Word; use Google if you can't find something.
