Mail merge paragraph number formating problem

Occasional Visitor

Good day

I have created a MS Word Mail Merge master document.  As I wanted different footers for different sections, I have used section breaks in the master document.  The master document have the correct paragraph numbers i.e. 1 to 9 on the first page and numbers 10 to 19 on the second page.  There is a section break between numbers 9 and 10.  When I generate the individual file, the new document has paragraph numbers 1 to 9 on the first page, but on the second page the numbering start from 1 (and not 10 as expected).  

I have tried to change the paragraph numbering to "continue from previous list", but the master document retains the command "start a new list" on page 2 (paragraph number 10).

Numbering works fine if there is no section breaks, but I need the section breaks to have the different footers.
