Trying to insert a landscape table but issues withe section breaks.

Occasional Contributor

Hi

 

I am trying to insert a table in landscape layout but my page numbers "reset". For example I am typing a report I am on page 9 and I want to insert a table in landscape --- I use the "selected text" option after highlighting the table. When I do that there is a section break and the all page numbers below the section break are 1. I try to delete the section break but now my table is back in portrait.

 

How can I keep the page numbers continuous while inserting my table in landscape without the remainder of the document being numbered page 1?

@Wardah Mustahsan In the Header\Footer of the Section after the Section Break, access the Page Number dropdown and then click on Format Page Numbers.

Then in the Format Page Number dialog, select the radio button for Continued from previous section
