Starting document at page 2

We get Word .doc files that have a fax cover page stripped off before we get the file. So all of our .doc files have a first page of 2, second page of 3, etc.

If I use Word to save as an ODT file and look at Contents.xml, I see this is tracked by the first style:

style:paragraph-properties style:page-number=“2”

I’ve been poking around the Document structure, but don’t see anything that corresponds to this. I get the correct number of pages, but LayoutCollector starts at 1.

Please tell me how to detect when a page number doesn’t start at 1.

I found my own answer to this: Under Section.PageSetup is a field called PageStartingNumber that fulfills this function. It is set to 2 for my sample document.
