Sorry, no -- not to me. I didn't say anything about deleting pages, I
asked if you needed to know how to delete text frames. If there are
empty text frames on top of the frames that contain your main flow (this
happens sometimes when you misapply master pages), you need to delete

If the "extra" text frames aren't empty, are they standalone text frames
or autoconnected and flowing from page to page? If the latter, you need
to determine if they're part of your main flow or a separate flow.
What's in them? Where does it belong? 

About all I can suggest is that if this document is really messed up,
you identify each flow (may be one or more text frames), select all in
flow, and copy to a new document. That doesn't resolve how the doc got
messed up and how to avoid doing it again. But maybe some quality time
with the relevant parts of the FM user guide will help.

Other than that, I'm at a loss. Maybe someone else on the list can
intuit what you need.
