    continuous section breaks are turned to next page (Word 2002 /XP SP3)

    Hello

    When printing documnets that include continuous section breaks are turned into next page section breaks. This only happens on certain documents.

    Would this have anything to do with how the sections are formatted? ie in File, Page Setup, Layout, Section Start = New Page.

    Someone mentioned it was a Word bug and mentioend the below - but I dont feel this is accurate:

    If you have:

    Section Break (Continuous)
    Section Break (Next Page)
    Section Break (Continuous)

    then delete the last SectionBreak (Continuous), you end up with

    Section Break (Continuous)
    Section Break (Continuous) s/b cn

    In other words, if you delete the section break between two other section breaks, the previous section break changes to be the same as the last section break.



    Any ideas?

    thank you

    Could you attach a document that exhibits this behavior? You can remove most text (but leave enough to demonstrate the problem).

    I have seen problems like this in the past but not for a long time. <post:=294,341>post 294,341</post:> sounds like a similar case although it states the problem was fixed in Word XP.

    Other than agree that you may have a rogue document, I don't think I can help much. Perhaps you could try saving out to RTF or XML and then see if the file starts behaving itself.
