Header footer question

Hello All

I'm having an issue with headers and footers.

I don't want a header or footer on the first two pages of a document.

At of the end of page 2, which is a TOC, I inserted a page break followed by
a continous section break

Sure enough, pages 1 and 2 are marked Section 1, and Page 3 is marked
Section 2. But if I put a header and footer on page 3 and mark it unlinked
to the previous header/footer (there isn't one anyway), a header/footer
nonetheless is created on pages 1 and 2. Furthermore, page three begiins
counting with number 2, even though I've used "insert page numbers" and set
it to start with 1. (If I say start with 0, it then starts with 1)

If I delete the header and footer that now appears on pages 1 and 2, the
header and footer disappears in the the rest of the document, even though
Sections 1 and 2 are unlinked.

Any thoughts about what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks for any help.

Hi Anthony,

Instead of inserting a page break then a continuous Section break after page 2, insert a 'Next page' Section break at the end of
page 2. Next, in the header/footer of the page 3 that results from this, unlink the header/footer from the previous Section and then
apply the header/footer numbering/formatting that you require.
