Thumbs up Answer: HOW DO I DELETE ONE PAGE NUMBER IN A DOCUMENT AND LEAVE REST AS I.

To delete specific page numbers in a Microsoft Word document, follow these steps:
  1. First, make sure you are on the page that you want to delete the page number from.
  2. Double-click on the header or footer area (depending on where your page numbers are located) to open the Header & Footer Tools tab.
  3. Click on the "Link to Previous" button to turn off the link between the current section and the previous section. This will allow you to delete the page number from just this section without affecting the rest of the document.
  4. Click on the page number you want to delete to select it.
  5. Press the "Delete" key on your keyboard to remove the page number.
  6. Repeat steps 1-5 for any additional page numbers you want to delete.
  7. Once you have deleted all the page numbers you want to remove, you can re-link the current section to the previous section by clicking on the "Link to Previous" button again.
  8. Finally, save your document to ensure that your changes are saved.

That's it! Your document should now have the page numbers removed from the specific pages you selected, while leaving the rest of the document's page numbers intact.

If you want to leave the last two pages but remove the page numbers, you
will need to insert a Section Break (Next Page) at the end of page 88, go
into the HEADER/FOOTER, unclick the "Same as Previous" toolbar icon, then
delete the page numbering for the last section (Pages 89 - 90).

PS: Having the CAPSLOCK key on is considered "SHOUTING"!

Please do not post in ALL CAPS.

As Bill explained, you can insert a section break and change your
header/footer and page numbering. Or you can use a conditional page
numbering scheme. Take a look at
http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/Number...eNumbering.htm. In general, it is
best to not ever put in a page number using Insert Page Number. Instead
put your page numbers in your header/footer; that way you have much more
control.
