Page numbers appearing twice in InDesign CS3

I have a InDesign document that I built off of a template. Some page numbers are appearing twice (on both the upper left and upper right) and I cannot delete this in the text layer. I have also looked at the Master page but I cannot find an indicator for why there is a page number. There is a # sign in the upper right but I can't delete that either.

Any ideas?! Thanks - An InDesign newbie.

If you could zip the file and upload it, that would be helpful.
The blue number sign is just a marker that means "end of text in this story."
Without seeing the document, I could only guess why the page number is appearing twice.

BTW, since EE doesn't allow an .indd file to be uploaded, even one that's in a .zip archive, you could upload it to a file sharing service and give the link.
I recommend www.senduit.com.
Just browse to the file, set the expiration to 1 week, upload it, then copy/paste the link here.

Click on the Black Arrow (Selection Tool); Hold the Ctrl+Shift Keys, then click on the page number to select it. Then press delete to remove it (that's page by page solution). HTH

Neglected to mention, if that fails, then your text is on a locked layer; Use the window menu to show the layers panel and make sure there are no locks next to the layers.
