Inserting descending page numbers

How do i insert descending page numbers so instead of starting at 1,2,3,4,5,6 etc it starts from 180,179,178 etc?

RE: Inserting descending page numbers

Hi Lennon

Thank you for your question.

Word's page numbering is designed to number in ascending order, not descending therefore there is nothing you can change in the page numbering that would make Word do this - sorry.
