Don't try to use Insert | Page Numbers. Instead, first check the box for
"Different first page" on the Layout tab of Page Setup. Then View | Header
and Footer and put your page number in the First Page Footer and default
Header. Do this by clicking the Insert Page Number button on the Header and
Footer toolbar. Position it using paragraph alignment or the built-in tab

I have been attempting to number my pages based on a required project
that require the first page in the footer and all subsequent pages in the
header but have not been successful in doing so. Any suggestions?
