I need to change the Master Page for a Document Library.  

The person who built this site added a banner to the v4.Master and applied it to the whole site.  Now the Upload item form also has the banner on it which looks odd and blocks the "Save/Upload" button from view.

Hi!
First, master page is applied to a page, not library or list. To change master page for a upload document page, you should open this page in SharePoint designer, switch to page markup view and edit MasterPageFile or DynamicMasterPageFile attribute <%@ Page %> directive.

Hi Ivan,
Thanks for your swift response.  When I edited the MasterPageFile it only changed the AllItems.aspx page. The page no longer had the banner at the top but the Upload form still did.  I was not able to find the DynamicMasterPageFile attribute you mentioned.

I must remove the banner from the form that is used to upload items to this library.
Any other suggestions?

You should edit Upload.aspx not AllItems.aspx (the path for Upload.aspx is the same as for AllItems.aspx)

Hi Ivan,
Thanks for your help. I figured out the problem.  First, we dont have access to edit _layouts/Upload.aspx.  

I did however find an easy solution by going to Site Settings/Masterpage and changed the System Masterpage.  This worked.  I do believe your solution would have worked as well if I could access Upload.aspx.

Thanks!

The solution provided by Ivan would have worked, however I do not have access to the _Layouts folder, another solution I found was changing it in the Masterpage settings under Site Settings.
