Why do my page numbers in Word display as Field Codes?

If I insert page X of Y as auto-text in the page footer, it would ordinarily display page 1 of 10, page 2 of 12, etc.  Now, the footer shows Page { PAGE } of { NUMPAGES }.  How can I fix this?  I can’t tell how many pages without counting them or printing the document.

I found the following answer on the internet.  It really helped.  This is posted from AskMetaFilter dot com.

What’s happened is that you have (perhaps through an unconcious / unfortunate string of keystrokes, doesn’t matter) set your Field Codes so they show, instead of what’s in them.
I’m assuming that your page numbers are in either the Header or Footer of the doc, so first:
1. On the View menu, click Header and Footer
2. You should see a little tool bar appear in the middle of your document – the Header / Footer tool bar. Click the page with the two boxes on it (one at the top, one at the bottom) – that will toggle you between the header and the footer.
3. Click in the {PAGE} thing, wherever it is (header or footer).
4. Right-click and select Toggle Field Codes. That should let you see what’s in the field code, instead of the code itself.

The Art of Making Halupki (Cabbage Rolls)

[fvplayer src=’http://www.sheldonsblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/2013-02-24-20.24.371.flv’ width=1920 height=1088 autoplay=false splash=’http://www.sheldonsblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/2013-02-24-20.24.37.flv.jpg’ splashend=show]

Preparing the cabbage leaves:  Carve the core from the bottom of the cabbage head.  Immerse the head of cabbage in a large stove top pot containing lightly boiling water and let it soften the cabbage head a bit so the leaves start to peel away.  Use a long cooking fork to hold the cabbage still while using a pair of cooking tongs to separate each cabbage leaf from the head.

Cut the tough piece from each leave, place a half handful of seasoned ground beef, pork and rice mixture onto the cabbage leaf, and roll the cabbage leaf around this meat and rice stuffing as shown in the video.  Stack the cabbage rolls in a large roaster pot.

Reserve the boiling cabbage water and add tomato paste and brown sugar per recipe.  Heat and stir this sauce mixture until everything is well dissolved.  Then, pour the sauce over the cabbage rolls in the roaster pot (fill to about half way up the top layer of cabbage rolls) before covering the pot and baking them in the oven per recipe.

Magic Reunion of Shaq and 3D and Penny on NBA Tip-Off

This is an all-Orlando Magic cast with Ernie Johnson.

Shaq tells the story about how he requested the Magic GM to arrange to get Penny instead of Chris Weber. This is the first time I heard of this. I always wondered why the Magic picked Chris Weber 1st in the draft and traded him to Golden State for Penny who was the third pick.

Could J.J. Redick be re-signed by the Magic this summer?

J.J. Redick will be an unrestricted free agent this summer.  When asked if he could re-sign with the Magic this summer, he  said that he can’t remember an NBA team trading a player and then re-signing him a few months later.

Well, remember that Zydrunas Ilgauskas was traded by the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Washington Wizards for Antawn Jamison.  Then, after the Wizards bought-out his contract, Big Z was re-signed by the Cavs.

So, we can keep our hopes that J.J. might return to the Magic, however unlikely the probability.
