It almost acts like it doesn't think that first page even exists!! I had originally imported this document from Word after getting very aggravated with Word, and this is my first experience with Pages (which up till now has been SO much nicer!). When I turn on View Layout - even that does not appear on that weird first page... It's like a "ghost page" or something - but I do need it gone!
Ah, I am not surprised that it is originally a Word document. If you like you can send me tha document and I will try to get rid of the blank page. I can't help you by writing here. To get my address click on my blue name.

Thanks so much for your offer to help, but this is a copyrighted book that I'm formatting for a published author, and I'm not at liberty to send it
Is there anything you can direct me to try to do? I'm a techie myself, so I'm pretty good at finagling - just need some suggestions and direction!
How about trying one of these ideas (on a COPY of the document, just in case):
Select everything in the section except for the first page.
Create a new blank section
Paste the copied stuff into the new section
After reviewing to see that everything looks as it should in the new section, delete the old section
Go to the top of the second page
Insert section break
Hopefully the blank page is in a section by itself now.
Delete the blank section
