How do you suppress page numbers later in a document?

When doing a multiple page document, I choose page numbering which shows as a
header and footer. After page 3 or 4, I want to supress numbers in the
remaining document, but when I hit "remove page number", it removes all the
numbering. How can I get the first few pages to number, and then stop the
number?

You have to insert a section break (Next Page) at the bottom of the last
numbered page. Then unlink the header (or footer) in Section 2 from the one
in Section 1 and delete the page number there. Without knowing what version
you're using, I can't be more specific.

Hi Karen,

As far as I remember, you can only remove the page # from the first
page. You can change the page number to restart at any number that
you want on any page by clicking on the "Format" button when you are
viewing the page numbers function.

Thanks,

Use the following field construction

{ IF { PAGE } < 5 { PAGE } }

You must use Ctrl + F9 to insert each pair of field delimiters and Alt+F9 to
toggle off their display. The above construction will suppress the page
numbers after page 4; Change the 5 to 4 if you want three to be the last
numbered page.
