Office challenge: How do I delete the page number from a title page?

This week, take our Office Challenge and test your Word skills with this frustrating page-numbering problem.

A user calls with a page-numbering problem in Word. The document has the following three sections:

  • Section 1 is the title page.
  • Section 2 displays regular page numbers.
  • Section 3 displays Roman numerals.

The user doesn't want a page number on the report's title page, but every time he deletes it, all of the page numbers disappear. Can you help this user?
