# Page numbering in Word 365

I need to start page number 1 on the document’s 8th page. I Googled directions but the numbering still begins on the cover page. Help! I tried section breaks, page breaks, no luck.

@Hans Le Roy I did everything I was instructed to do, but it still starts numbering at page 8 instead of page 1.  I need someone in the room with me to prove that I'm not crazy!
