This is where you use the Section Break. You must decide whether to have continuous section breaks, start them on the next page, or next odd or even page. Regardless of which type you choose, you can now specify a different page setup for each section. I assume that you will initially want at least two section breaks. Setup your page for the first page, and then insert a section break starting on "next page". That next page, and subsequent pages can have any
kind of page setup you desire. You don't need another section break unless you are going to change the page setup again, or apply special formatting limited to a particular section. Look at "section breaks" in the online help.
