Have you looked at the documentation for setting up pagination? Do you have any code you can post of where you are at with things? It would be helpful for others to assist you if you posted your code along with what you are trying to accomplish.

You can see examples of using pagination here:

Pagination Spanning


To span one entry across multiple pages EE natively requires the use of multiple content fields:

EE Docs for multiple content fields

You determine how the content splits into chunks by how you split up the content into the multiple fields.

In your code you have:

{multi_field="page1|page2| page3"}

Which assumes you have fields with the names of page1, page2 and page3 in the fieldset assigned to the channel.
