    It's not unclear, and it's hardly the author's fault the instructions are long, to the best of my knowledge they weren't responsible for designing Word 2007.

    Dear friends
    Simple method:
    Detach and attach rule
    just detach the word pages with cntrl + x and  paste (ctrl +v) in file 1.
    the file 1 doesnot show ur page number ,,if it shows..just use click on page number and use delete option.
    file 2 is orginal let us say  where software automatically picks to page number counts from 1,
    just combine the file 1 and file 2 with combine pdf  an send to ur supervisor  which is most standard way in document work
    use pdf to word converter u again get good reults but you need to have softwares pdf to word converter which is also free but download it from website.
    every thing is simple option, it takes less time.
    Process 2
    detach, groupup and header and fooder ,,but its tough to explain in single page
