    saving a doc in Autotext (Word 2000)

    A Word user in-house has asked me the following, and I don't know the answer---
    I have a document I want to save in autotext. The document has two continuous section breaks in it. When I play back the document from autotext it changes the second section break to a next-page break. I want it to STOP changing the break to a next page break. Why is it doing it?? <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39>

    Before inserting the Autotext entry, go into File/Page Setup.../Layout tab. Change the section break from New page (I know it says "Next Page" on the document, but MS isn't consistent) to continuous.

    Hope this helps.

    <img src=/S/flee.gif border=0 alt=flee width=25 height=25>I followed up with the user and she said that was the first thing she'd tried but it didn't work. Thanks! Any other possible ideas??

    There are two places in which to check the File/Page Setup...etc. & change the type of section break. You must look first in the Autotext entry itself. I am assuming that when you say you are saving a document in Autotext, you mean that you selected the entire document & saved it as an AutoText entry.

    However, you should also look at the document that you are inserting the Autotext into. Make sure that it is set up to have continuous section breaks as the default.

    If that doesn't work, maybe you could attach the template that contains the AutoText entry as a zip file. Let us know what happens.

    user came up with a solution

    She emailed me this morning to say:
    Okay. Tried that (the suggestion in last lounge post). Didn't work. However, if I click on "new page", insert a continuous break, insert the autotext, then delete the first continuous break that I just had to insert, I have the desired result.

    Thanks for your help!
