    W97 - doc with section breaks cant access headers

    W97 -
    I have a document thats formatted with multiple section breaks.
    From section 5 onwards there are no headers only footers.
    when I goto view header & footer - only the footer is displayed & accesable.
    I cannot access the header in Word.
    Has anyone come across this before?
    Any ideas
    TIA Diana

    Yes, and it was traced to some kind of corruption relating to a section break - specifically the section break after which the headers disappeared.

    We had to recreate the document by pasting it piece by piece into a new document, avoiding bringing across the offending section break.[img]/w3timages/icons/sad.gif[/img]

    There may be some other scenario that can cause this problem as well, but the above is the one I've seen before.

    Thanks Gary

    I had a look at it further & I found the doc corrupt.
    therefore started with new doc & copied & pasted doc piece by piece & added new section break.
    cheers- Diana
