    Page break before adds extra page (Word 2002)

    I have a heading structure with outline numbering where all the heading are linked in the same numbered list and work as they should. There are five Heading 1 paras for different document sections and one, only one, adds an extra blank page when I use Page Break before.

    I change the style to anything else or remove the Page Break before from the individual para and the blank page disappears and the paras follow on as they should. I change the style back to Heading 1 and the extra blank page is reinserted. It only happens at the one place in the document, not with any of the other Heading 1 paras.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Geoff

    hi Geoff ,

    Are you able to post a stripped-down copy of the offending document, with anything sensitive removed?
    Cheers,

    Is there a hard page break in front of that paragraph as well as the Paragraph formatting setting of a Page Break before? When these are doubled up you would get that behaviour.

    What happens if you completely delete the errant heading, and then insert a new Heading 1 with the correct text?

    Are there tracked revisions in the document?

    Hi guys

    Thanks for the advice but I found the problem was that somehow, Word was inserting the Heading 1 style from somewhere other than the Outline Numbered styles list. I have no idea whay but I going back to reread the stuff on Outline numbered lists.

    Thanks again, Geoff
