Default page number does not appear

hi all,

office 2003 pro sp2 and wxp pro sp2,

i have a problem that i cannot seem to rectify and would therefore
appreciate advice/help to find out what's the problem and how to solve it.

i have a word document, i did Insert - Page Numbers - Position: Bottom of
page (Footer), Alignment: Right, and Show number of first page unticked. well
for some reasons, numbering only starts on page 7, which was correctly
numbered as page 7. when i clicked on the number itself i.e. page number 7,
which incidentally is shaded grey, a box appeared with a title of Footer -
Section 6. here's the strange bit - if i use Header and Footer tool bar to
manually insert the page number, the page number would appear but on page 7,
there will be two numbers, one, which i presumed from Insert - Page Numbers
and one from the Header and Footer.

i found when i googled
this problem but unfortunately when i tried to use {Page} what happened next
baffled me even more... page 1 would appear on page 1 except that i do not
want page 1 number to appear on the first page. page 2 right through to 6
correctly numbered but on page 7, there is no page 7. what there is, was a
'{Page...}' shaded grey.

i hope my description was not too confusing! if it was, please do let me
know which bit(s) and i shall try to describe it again. thank you for your
