I want to ignore the title page which is page 1 and have page number 1 start

on page 2. Is this possible?

    • Hi,

      I usually separate my title page from the rest of the document with a

      section break. Then, in the first page you want numbered, select "format

      page number" in the footer, choose "start at", then "1". This should number

      the page you're on at "1".

      HTH,

      Tom

    • For this specific case *only,* check the box for "Different first page" on

      the Layout tab of Page Setup. Leave the First Page Header/Footer empty,

      insert your page number in the Header/Footer, and, in the Format Page Number

      dialog, set the numbering to start at 0.
