Source Footers disappear when pdf footers updated

I have added a page to my pdf document and need to update the page numbers in the footer section. when I do so, the source footers from the WORD document disappear. Is there a solution.

That is unfortunately how footers from MS Word documents are handled: They are tagged as a footer internally, so when you try to create a new footer or update the footer, Acrobat "knows" that there is an existing footer, but, unlike footers created by Acrobat's Headers & Footers function, the footer cannot be modified. What I do is, I remove the footer that Word placed on the pages, and replace it with one created in Acrobat. this way, I can modify it from that point going forward.
