What seems to be the problem? In a Word Processing Template when you are typing in the Text Layer, new pages just appear as you need them. In a Page Layout document when you need a new page you use the Insert > Pages command. We could give you a more specific answer if you would tells us what you are doing there.

Thanks. I'm a novice at this, obviously. But, when I went to Insert, almost all of the options, except "sections" were grayed out - I couldn't click "page break" for some reason. I ended up going to Insert -> section -> blank page. I should have checked there before asking, but when most of my options are grayed out, I'm not sure why or where to go next. I'm not sure where to find this kind of information - which used to be in user manuals - besides here. IS there an online user's manual somewhere? Thanks for your help! This was so simple, I feel like I abused the help - didn't mean to, I promise! But one little fact(oid) can make all of the difference.

"Page Break" being greyed is a pretty positive indication that you are using a document created from a Page Layout template.
In PL, every page is a separate section, and the only ways to add a page are to click the +Pages button, or go Insert > Pages, and choose which type of page to add.
In a word processing document, Pages will add a page automatically whenever one is needed to accommodate added text (or inline objects, which act as text).
You can identify the type of document you have by looking at the title bar, where the type is identified immediately after the document's name.
Apple provides a downloadable manual ('User Guide') for each of the iWork applications, and a further one covering the use of formulas and functions in all three. You'll find download links for the Pages '09 User Guide and the iWork Formulas and Functions User Guide in the Help menu in Numbers.
I'd recommend reading at least the first few chapters of the Pages guide, and using the rest of that guide and the F&F guide as reference books, to be checked whenever a question arises.
