Sorry - I could only find how to delete paragraphs..
Maybe it'l help. Good luck

Sub DeleteSelection()
    Dim intResponse As Integer
   
    intResponse = MsgBox("Are you sure you want to " & _
        "delete the contents of the document?", vbYesNo)
   
    If intResponse = vbYes Then
        ActiveDocument.Paragraphs(1).Range.Select
        Selection.Delete
    End If
End Sub

Pages are a problem for macros. There no Word object corresponding to the visible page. This is because the meaning of a page is volatile, varying with the font, the printer driver and any editing earlier in the document.

Is your first page limited by a hard (manual) page break or next page section break?

If not, this will work, but it takes a noticeable amount of time.

Sub DelPage1()
    Dim r As Range
    Set r = ActiveDocument.Range(0, 0)
    Do Until r.Information(wdActiveEndPageNumber) = 2
        r.MoveEnd wdCharacter, 1
    Loop
    r.MoveEnd wdCharacter, -1
    r.Text = ""
End Sub

Hi Graham, you could probably make use of the Predefined Bookmarks to get the active page.

Sub Test1()
sPageToDelete = 4
Selection.GoTo(What:=1, Which:=2, _
Name:=sPageToDelete).Bookmarks("\Page").Range.Delete
End Sub

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Duh! Of course.

itimes,
please ignore my answer & accept Rajesh's

For the sake of understanding the code, we can use built-in constant names instead of the numbers.

Selection.GoTo(What:=wdGoToPage, Which:=wdGoToNext, _
Name:=sPageToDelete).Bookmarks("\Page").Range.Delete

Oh yes. A lot easier.

Sub DeleteFirstSection()
    ActiveDocument.Sections(1).Range.Text = ""
End Sub


I don't know why Rajesh's code didn't work for you. I'll test it here.

If you have Option Explicit set, you will need to declare the variable. Otherwise Rajesh's code works.

Sub Test1()
    Dim sPageToDelete As Integer
   
    sPageToDelete = 1
    Selection.GoTo(What:=1, Which:=2, _
    Name:=sPageToDelete).Bookmarks("\Page").Range.Delete
End Sub
