  • Place the insertion point where you want the number of pages.

    Press Ctrl+F9 to insert field brackets { }.

    Type = then press Ctrl+F9 again.

    Type NumPages within the inner pair of brackets, and -1 after it. You should now see

    { ={ NumPages }-1 }

    Press F9 to hide the field codes.
