Page 1 of my document is an introductory page so I created a Next Page break
to begin the next section of the document. When using the Page x of y
feature in header and footer, is it possible to change the Y count to begin
at 1? Any sugesstions?

If you have just one section after the first page, you can change the field
that generates the Y number from NumPages to SectionPages. Press Alt+F9 to
display field codes and edit the NumPages code. Then Alt+F9 to toggle back
and F9 to update.
