I have a manuscript for a book that has the pages numbered wrong. I need to delete the numbers. Thank you!

This seems to be a Writer question. The tag "common" should be replaced by "writer".

Writer shouldn't paginate a document with wrong numbers. How did you create the wrong page numbers?
Was it done via > Insert > Field?
Are the page numbers placed in Headers or Footers as usual?
Is your question about the starting of a specific part of the document with a specific first page number.
What did you already try to get rid of the unwanted numbers?

Are you using the normal .odt to save the document? .doc and .docx store numbers in a different way and you may ave difficulties if you save the document in those formats.. You need to place the page numbers in the header or footer having defined the page styles to support the header or footer.
