Hi,
Selection points at current location where the text is going to be displayed, you have already typed something on first page. Afterwards you have inserted a Page Break, then the selection is on the second page. If you wanted to display text on the second page, then you would just use TypeText, because Selection is on that page.
word.Selection.Style='Heading 1';
word.Selection.TypeText='Introduction';
word.Selection.InsertBreak(7); %pagebreak
word.Selection.TypeText='Introduction on page 2';
An example of arguments for GoTo method to go to second page are shown below.
word.Selection.GoTo(1, 1, 2);
