QUESTION: it is 2010   would you have an answer   thnk you

Hello Aamir,

Thanks for the quick response.

I don't use 2010 but here is how the MS Mavens say to get rid of a page:

Delete a blank page
Make sure that you're in Draft view (on the View menu in the status bar, click Draft). If nonprinting characters, such as paragraph markers (∂), are not visible, on Home, in the Paragraph group, click Show/Hide Paragraph mark.

To delete a blank page, select the page break at the end of the page, and then press DELETE.
Delete a single page of content
You can select and delete a single page of content anywhere in your document.

Place your cursor anywhere in the page of content that you want to delete.
On the Home tab, in the Find group, click the arrow next to Find, and then click Go To.
Word Ribbon image

Type \page and then click Go To.
The content of the page is selected.

Click Close, and then press DELETE.

Good luck.
