Unable to delete Greyed out para and break marks at end of document

I have been writing on this family history for years. Lots of cut and paste. Now I am almost done but I find I have some odd para marks I cannot get rid of. I have cut the document up reassembled, studied Help, etc. for hours, no luck. I don't know what do do.

Hi and welcome to the Forum. I will stab a guess and say that you are using Microsoft Word? If so in the toolbar you will see a box giving the percentage size of the document. To the left of that is a Paragraph sign. Just click that and your unwanted signs will be hidden. If that doesn't work then adise us what program and version you are using.

Hi, thanks for response. I apologize for not telling you I am using Word 203, IE, W7 Ultima

I know about the show hide button but that is not the problem. When you click print preview you can see the extra sections, & pages, etc. are still there.

On my attachment #1 you can see the pg 205 where the page no is in the middle of the page. I cannot delete this page or the para marks to change the location of the section.

Attachment #2 shows in print preview a line which does not print.
I tried removing page numbers on 205 and 206 but that removed all the page numbers.

I think I have a badly corrupted instruction somewhere here. I wanted to remove the page numbers showing up at the end so when it is printed I don't have two blank numbered pages.

Well Unless I'm going daft which is highly likely I cannot see any page numbers in any of your images?
Have to tried opening the page where you want to delete the page number then go to "View" "Headers and Footers" and just manually delete the page numbers?
Not sure what you mean by "change the position of the section." But perhaps if you created a text box, copied and pasted the "section" into the box then move it where you will

I doubt you are really using MS Word 203; I don't even use it anymore. With that said, you may have better luck using the following link and posting there;

Microsoft Office Forums - Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Project

No reason at all why the OP is not using MS Word 2003, millions still do including me!

Try reading my post again! The OP isn't using 2003, they state it is 203...thus my attempt at humor and the reason I added the smiley face.

Too early in the morning to catch your hint (2003) Sir George, a good one Thanks for the site. I have been keeping Word 2003 until I finish my book.

I haven't caught on to how to see the attachments I sent with my last post so I am not sure I posted a second pair so I will try again and maybe it will help mitchell65

As I have said, I am unable to select the greyed out paragraph marks to delete them.
thanks all.
(sorry uploaded a repeated image)

Can you post a screenshot of your toolbar and also create a new test page with just a few words typed in it and post a screenshot of that as well?

How about saving one page as a separate .doc file attaching it here and I will open in my Word 2003 to see what I can do with it?
BTW I'm a bit confused. You show your country flag as UK but your time zone is the USA. Is that correct?
