    Microsoft gives this as an example
    With ActiveDocument.Sections(1) 
        .Footers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).PageNumbers.Add _ 
        PageNumberAlignment:=wdAlignPageNumberLeft, _ 
        FirstPage:=True 
    End With
    So what happens if we went with
    With ActiveDocument.Sections(5) 
        .Footers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).PageNumbers.Add _ 
        PageNumberAlignment:=wdAlignPageNumberLeft, _ 
        FirstPage:=True
    End With
    Just guessing here, while we wait for those experts who are currently slumbering to come calling.

    That adds page numbers, it does not restart the numbering sequence.
    Doing that requires a Section break before page 4.
    You need to know the Word object model for page numbering before you start trying to code it.
    Try creating a scratch document and record a macro that restarts the numbering using the Format Page Numbers dialog and look at the code.

    These talk about what is going on in Word.

    Then look at your recorded code in the vba editor to get an idea of the Word objects and methods involved.
