Default Number of pages in document

I do not want to include the front page in the total of pages in the footer.
e.g. In a booklet with a front page and two pages of content: front page
should show nothing; page two should show ' 1 of 2' and page three '2 of 2'.
How? I have started the page numbering from page 2 OK but page 2 shows '1 of
3' instead of '1 of 2'. Each page has various sections as they have field
codes (form).

If Carol's link doesn't do it, see he
http://gregmaxey.mvps.org/Page_Numbering.htm

Page X of Y where you want Y to be the total for several sections but
exclude other sections can require some field math, explained at that link.
Can't quite tell whether it's applicable to your document as I don't deal
with forms and thus do not quite understand your last sentence.
