Page Break in Microsoft Word 2007


I have a table of contents on the first page of my MS Word 2007 document.  I've decided I want a title page before the page with the table of contents, so I'm attempting to insert a page break over the table.

The page break inserts, but the new title page has the top of the table of contents in it and I can't delete it.  It looks like it's merely splitting the table of contents between the pages.

How do I insert a clean page break here?

I may have spoken too soon.  While the page break is inserted, when I type even one character in the new page, it jumps down to the page containing the TOC.  It's as if I can't enter anything into the new cover page.
Hmm, after you insert the page break, press the Ctrl+Home key to get to the very start of the document and then start typing.  Do you get the same result?
