Microsoft Office word 2003

Specs: Windows XP
I am trying to number a word document. I need to number (for example) pages 1 to 6 normally. Then I need pages 7 to the end to not appear. I have tried using Headers and Footers, then insserted a section break, and then tried to format the second section on its own. I therefore format page numbers 7 to the end in white. It seems to work, until I go to print preview, and then the whole document reverts to the same formatting, so pages 1 to 6 'vanish' as well. I have been told that I can delete the page numbers from the second section, but the button I'm told to click on does not exist in Word 2003 (the solution is proposed using word 2007).

Please can anyone help?

At the page you want to change from visible to not visible page numbering, use Insert - Break... - Section break types 'Next page'

Now go to a page in the first section of the document
Use View - Header and Footer
Using the Header and Footer toolbar:
Click the 'Switch between Header and Footer' icon
In the Footer click the 'Insert Page Number' icon

Move you cursor to the footer of the first page of the second section.
(It should be marked 'Footer -Section 2-' just above the footer, and it will have 'Same as Previous' also just above the footer.
From the Header and Footer toolbar click the 'Link to previous' icon

The text 'Same as Previous' will disappear.
Now delete the page number in the Section 2 footer.

Close the Header and Footer toolbar.

Pages in the first section will display a page number, but the remaining pages will not.

Thank you, I'll try that.

I'm afraid I got so confused with what I was being asked (sometimes being asked the same question twice over) that I was hurrying to get this posted, and wasn't sure what would appear where.
