    Click the Insert tab. Near the center of the header are 3 options for Header and Footer. Click the little arrow to the right of Page Number and select Remove Page Numbers from the drop down menu. See attached screen shot

    Thanks for your reply Raybro, but I'm working off Windows XP Pro and my page doesnt look anything like your thumbnail. Mine is just the plain old format. Thanks anyway. Regards.

    The OS should not be a factor. What version of Word are you using? Mine is Office 2007.

    The simplest way is to double-click the header (or footer, depending on the location of page numbers in your document), delete the number and click OK.

    There's no other option in old versions of Word.

    Tried that, in fact I've tried everything except standing on my head, but nothing seems to remove the numbers, so will have to give up and re-type a new document. Thanks for your help. Regards,

    The document is possibly corrupt.

    Been a long time since I used Word 2003, but I did find this. Hope it's of some help.
