    Word 2000 - Paste landscape into portrait document (2000)

    I have a 16 page document. I want to copy/paste or Insert-File a 2 page document in the middle (I've tried both ways). The first of the 2 pages is portrait, and the 2nd page is landscape. I have a section break-next page in the 2 page document, but the second page goes portrait when I put it into the 16 page document.

    Make sure there is a next page section break at the end of the landscape page. You can insert one after you paste the text in, then reformat the appropriate section as landscape.

    Section formatting is included in the section break at the END of a section (or the paragraph marker at the end of the document for the last section). When you paste your two pages into the larger document, the second of the two pages is picking up section formatting from the end of the target document.
