Help with Inserting a page number (Word2007)

by Chigal48 / January 1, 2010 6:32 AM PST

Hi all, I normally know how to find the answers to problems, but this has me stumped. I went to the ? help and knowledge base and still cannot find the answer.

I have a 4 page document. There is a section break after the 2nd page.
The first two pages are instructions for the final two pages. I want to insert page #1 on the 3rd pg of the four page document. I want the first page number to start on the 3rd page.

I've done it all -- Insert > page number > center bottom> on the 3rd page.
I tried to "start numbering at 1" in the Edit page number section.

I even tried typing the page number on the 3rd & 4th page, but that causes the first two pages to number.

I do not want page numbering on the first two pages.

Nothing is working.

Word 2007
Vista O/S

Help! there must be a simple way to do this.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
