For example I want the first 3 pages to have the footer i, ii, iii and after that I want 4, 5, 6 etc. Is it possible?

You will have to first create a section break then add the footers.

Here is the tutorial: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word-help/add-different-page-numbers-or-number-formats-to-different-sections-HA102809694.aspx

  • I think you mean footers, not foot notes.

Yes. When you add a Section Break, it will make Word treat the headers and footers differently before and after the section break. You can then customize the headers and footers appropriately.
