This article describes how to add and remove page numbers in Microsoft Word 2000.
How to Add Page NumbersWord provides the following two methods to add page numbers to a document or template. With either method, the page numbers appear in the header or footer at the top or bottom of the page. Based on the method that you choose, Word formats page numbers in one of two ways: as a field inside a text box, or as a field not placed inside a text box.
Use the Page Numbers Command on the Insert MenuChoose this method if you want to add only page numbers to headers or footers. When you use this method, Word places the page number field inside a text box.
Use the Header and Footer Command on the View MenuChoose this method if you want to add a variety of information to headers or footers; for example, chapter titles, dates, or page numbers. When you use this method, Word places the page number field in the header or footer area but does not place the page number field inside a text box. This method allows you to have more formatting control over the contents of the header or footer.

Removing the text box also removes the page number. If the page number is not inside a text box, select it and then delete it.
