    Header and Footer problem (XP SP2)

    Hi

    We have a document that originally had 2 Footers in it: 1 with Page Numbering and 1 with some text. The text has now been deleted, but the Page Numbers won't show up, no matter what we do.

    Page 80 is the last page on which the Numbers appear, and when I click on this Footer, it says that it's Footer-Section 1.
    Page 81 doesn't have the Footer visible, although when I click on the Footer, the page number becomes visible. This also says Footer-Section 1.

    I could understand if these were two different Sections but the Footer on both pages says Footer-Section 1.

    There is a Section Break (Next Page) in the document, but this shouldn't affect the Page Numbering, should it? Also, why is the Page Number visible when in the Footer, but yet it disappears in Print Layout/Preview.

    I am extremely frustrated and am hoping someone can help . . . please <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15> <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23> <img src=/S/igiveup.gif border=0 alt=igiveup width=31 height=23>

    The reply by <!profile=SourceDoc>SourceDoc<!/profile> was removed by me because it was considered a blatant violation of <!rule=12>Rule 12<!/rule>, especially considering that the resulting page requested users details before anything could be done, and also the fact that SourceDoc, without any indication thereof, works for the company promoted.

    All section breaks impact the headers and footers. Section breaks are where the information for these elements is stored (along with page setup information). The last return in the document also holds this same information.

    If the page number becomes visible ONLY when you select it - could it be formatted as White text on a white background.

    You need to provide more information for us to solve this problem. Where is the section break - is it on page 81? What does right clicking on the page number (in each section) and choosing Toggle Field Codes reveal.

    Alternatively you could remove most of the content of the file and post it here so we can have a look.

    I thought it might've been white text too, but alas, it wasn't. Deleting the Section Break did solve the problem, but it seemed to do something weird. All the Field Codes suddenly toggled themselves on, and it appeared that the document repaginated itself. As it was a 100-page document, we were worried that it might have affected it beyond just repagination, so we saved it with a new name, just in case something else weird happened?

    Love to know why the Section Break rendered the text invisible, though, despite it saying that they were both Section 1 Footers, but I won't waste any more of your time.

    Thanks for posting back.

    Kind regards <img src=/S/bow.gif border=0 alt=bow width=15 height=15>
