@Meldm_ You will need to insert a Section Break between the third and fourth pages of your document and then right click in the footer area of the fourth page of your document and then on Edit Footer and in the Navigation section of the Header & Footer tab of the ribbon, click on the Link to Previous button to unlink the footer in the new Section from that in the previous Section.  Then you can insert the page number into the Footer of the new Section.  If you want the numbering to start from 1 on that page, access the Format Page Number dialog and select the radio button for Start at and select 1
