    Letterhead template won't stay put (2000)

    Hi !
    I have an interesting puzzle that I'm trying to solve. I've set up a letterhead template in Word 2000.
    The main part ot the letterhead is down the left side of the page, therefore, that margin is very wide (2.2").
    I need to set up the template so that the letterhead shows up on the first page of the document only, and subsequent pages have a more standard margin setting.
    I've tried inserting a section break & making that section break start a new page. The problem is that when a user types to the end of the first page, the first section is automatically exended & the letterhead winds up on the second page as well.
    Is there any way to set up a section break & give it an absolute position so that it doesn't move with text changes?

    Thanks for any help!

    Is the main part of your letterhead (running down left side) on preprinted paper or is it in your actual template?

    the letterhead is a part of the actual template. We print it on plain paper

    Is the letterhead in a text box along the left side? If so, move from the first page to the header and set wrapping to right side only. Set up the page setup to be different first page. You will then be allowed to set your margins at what you want and when it goes to the 2nd page, your margins will be where you want them.

    Way Cool!
    It works! At first, I didn't understand what you meant by "setting the wrapping to right side only", and kept trying to set the margin for the first page to be different from the subsequent pages. That can't be done.
    Then I had a brilliant flash of delayed intelligence and re-read your post.
    I changed the text box properties and tinkered with the box width and the internal margin till it looked right.

    Thanks for all your help! <img src=/S/bravo.gif border=0 alt=bravo width=16 height=30>
