I have several landscape pages on my portrait Ms. Word 2010 document, and I want to change the page number on landscape pages to vertical position.

What I have done so far:

  • section breaks for the landscape pages
  • uncheck "link to previous section"
  • uncheck "different first page"

But everytime I tried to create the vertical page number (header & footer > page number > page margin), the vertical number is also shown on the portrait pages, even though I'm sure I did the section breaks right.

Please help, I am so desperate to get this done!

Please see my lengthy answer in this thread: Formatting headers and footers in landscape pages to have a portrait orientation.

Note that the procedure for doing this applies to all versions of Word.
