[Tex/LaTex] How to set the page number to any needed value


I have a seven page long paper which will be assembled with other papers. I know that the first page of my paper will be page 68 in the assembled work. What can i do to tell LaTeX to start counting from 68?

you can usually set the desired page number by \setcounter{page}{68}.

there are some commands, e.g. \chapter, that may result in an increased page number (see below); in such a case, you should set the value to one less than what you want to start with.

also, be aware that \chapter will, by definition, start on an odd-numbered page, and this may result in the page number being increased. your span starts with an even-numbered page. if that is a problem, ask for more help.
