    Page Setup Layout

    I am using word 2000 sr1-a and in my document I have several sections. Originally the document had Page Setup
    Layout Headers and footers set to Different odd and even. I would like to have one section of my document to have headers and footers all the same. When I try this and apply the setting to 'this Section' it always changes every section in the document? Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    Roger

    When you open the Head/footer toolbar in the section where you want the headers and footers all the same, click that $%^&!! Same as Previous button (so that it's unchecked). Open the Page Setup window and uncheck Different First page, too.

    Thanks for your reply. I was very very careful about unchecking same as previous in both the header and footer as I have been burned by that before. Also the different first page is also unchecked in the Page Setup window. I repeated it again anyway and it still changes the whole document.

    Can you navigate from section to section with the Header footer toolbar displayed? Sounds like you only have one section or one page (just being thorough, not insulting your intelligence).

    Re: Page Setup Layout

    I can navigate from page to page and section to section with the Header footer toolbar displayed. The section number shows up by the header/footer and changes appropriately where I would expect it to. Each Section is anywhere from 5 to 10 pages and there are about 14 sections in the document. It is section 13 that I am trying to change. No, I am not superstitious but maybe I should be..

    Hi Roger:

    Do you have bookmarks in your document. I've seen the situation where the section breaks are connected to a bookmark (or the wrong bookmark) & this prevents changing the header/footer.

    Then, too, you may have some corruption in the section breaks. You could try pasting the text into a new document, create the section breaks anew, & paste the text from the header/footers into the new document.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks:
    Yes I do have bookmarks. In fact I have the same 2 bookmarks in the headers of most of the sections. This weekend I will try your suggestion and try to narrow down the problem to the least common denominator.
