Start page numbering later in your document

Sometimes you might not want the page numbers shown in your header or footer to be the same as the actual page numbers. If the actual first page of your document is a cover page, for example, and the second page is a table of contents, you might want the third page to show “Page 1.”

To start page numbering later in your document, first divide your document into sections. Go to add different page numbers or number formats to different sections to learn more.
