Question: “Does anyone know how to stop pagination at a certain point in a Word document? I’ve had to do this many times, but every time is difficult and time consuming. I type multisection documents and in the final section, I need to stop page numbering. I know you must undo the “link to previous,” but I have to fight with it for a long time before I can get it to work. I’d like a simple, quick or easy way to do it, but I would settle for just knowing step-by-step how to do it right each time without having to fight with it for an hour or more.” — Diana

Question: “What should I do about a co-worker who takes advantage of a boss-less office?  My boss's main office is in Massachusetts, but she also manages my two-person office in New York remotely.  This requires a large amount of trust from my boss.  My co-worker, however, walks into the office late, but leaves on time every single day. Plus, she stops working 10 to 15 minutes early to use the restroom, shut down her computer and pack up. Further, she constantly makes personal calls on the office phone, which we share!  I know that if my boss were here, my co-worker would not be conducting herself in this manner.  How do I bring this to the attention of my boss without appearing like a troublemaker?” —Jamie

Question: "I work at a company that loves meetings. I support a C-level executive and am always looking for ways to reduce the amount of meetings he needs to attend. I’ve tried reducing the length of meetings, sending delegates, changing the frequency (quarterly instead of monthly), handling more topics via e-mail and scheduling them over lunch or dinner. Every few months, we review all scheduled meetings to see whether we can cancel anything.  And yet there still are not enough hours in the day to accommodate all the high- priority meetings. Does anyone have additional suggestions for eliminating the amount of meetings?"  — Angela Van Cleve
