table of contents shows wrong page number for sections

I need to know how to make the table of contents show the number in the
footer for items in a section i have re-started at page 1. The table of
contents is showing page 3 (which is the true/physical number) -- i need the
TOC to match the number on the page.

At the end of physical page 2, insert a section break; this means that a new
section will start on page 3. In the newly created section, use the Page
Number Format dialog box to set the starting number to 1.

Here's how to display the Page Number Format dialog box:

- In Word 97-2003, click View | Header and Footer. Make sure to place the
insertion point in the relevant section. On the Header and Footer toolbar,
click Format Page Number.

- In Word 2007, activate the header/footer area for example by
double-clicking the header. Place the insertion point in the relevant
section. On the Header and Footer Tools Design tab, click Page Number, and
then click Format Page Numbers.

When you are done, update the table of contents.
