    Removing One Footer (WORD '03)

    I have a lengthy tech document. Title page has no footer or header (this is what is desired, no changes here).
    2nd page of document is now blank and I need to remove ONLY the footer on this page. When I try to remove it, the footers throughout the document go away....
    What I want to simply do is move everything up one page, and retain the footers that are applied throughout.
    Thanks,

    You need to insert a section break at the end of page 2. You can then edit the footer on page 3 and clear the button for "Link to Previous". Finally you can delete the footer contents on page 2.

    Select View | Headers and Footers...
    Activate the second page footer.
    Position the insertion point at the beginning and press Ctrl+F9 to insert field brackets.
    Type IF followed by a space, then press Ctrl+F9 again.
    Type PAGE, then move the insertion point to between the two closing brackets.
    Type <code> > 2 "" ""</code>
    It should now look like this:
    <code>{ IF { PAGE } > 2 "" "" }</code>
    Now move or cut/paste the original footer between the first pair of quotes:
    <code>{ IF { PAGE } > 2 "this is the footer text" "" }</code>
    Press F9 to update.

    I've tried this twice. I'm doing each step. At the final end when I do the F9, I get a row of RED error messages:

    That means you entered the field codes incorrectly. Try Stuart's suggestion instead.

    I did Stuart's suggestion and it worked. But, I would like to better understand field codes. Can you suggest something that will educate me? Thanks! : )
