Word 2003 - Using Section Breaks, and the tools on the Header and Footer
toolbar I have an 11 page document with no Header or Footer on the first page
(Section 1), i,ii are page numbers on the next two pages(Section 2), and then
1 of 11, 2 of 11,.....to 8 of 11 in the third section.
I need to get the third section to read 1 of 8, 2 of 8,...8 of 8.
I cant get the total number of pages in section 3 to be an 8.

Use a SectionPages field instead of NumPages for the Y of Page X of Y.

Right-click the field in that group that represents the number of pages, and
click Toggle Field Codes. You should see {NUMPAGES} which represents the
total number of pages in the document. Change the field code to
{SECTIONPAGES} and press F9 to update the field.

If you had more than one section after the first two sections, this wouldn't
work -- the field can only count the number of pages of the current section.
If that situation occurs, the best way to deal with it is to place a
bookmark on the last page of the last section to be counted; then insert a
{PAGEREF bookmarkname} field in the header or footer to display the number
of the page that contains the bookmark.
