Default How do I remove/edit a huge page number in the middle of a workshe

I use Excel 2007. I have a huge page number in the middle of my worksheet. It
covers about a dozen cells and is dark gray. It is apparently not in the
background because "remove background" is not available. It is also
apparently not a watermark since the page number changes when the page
changes. It is in neither a header nor a footer. What is this thing and how
can I remove or edit it?

Thanks.

The why of it................You are in PageBreak view and the number cannot
be removed.

Change to Normal view as Jacob points out.
