    Re: different header per page (word 2002)

    There can be up to 3 headers per section (sections created using Insert > Break, then a section type other than Continuous): first page, even pages, odd pages.

    Would the content of your header be based on something in the body of the document? For example, it is common to use a {STYLEREF} field to create "phone directory" style "from" and "to" information. (I think the help file for the STYLEREF field explains how to do this.)

    Worst case scenario is separate sections for each page with manual entry in the header. Remember to "unpush" the Same as Previous button on the Header/Footer toolbar so that your changes in, say, the Section 2 Header do not replace the contents of your Section 1 Header.

    I know this is pretty general. If you explain your needs in more detail and we probably can help more.

    Hi dillon, I forgot to mention: it is often best to use View>Normal while editing this type of document so you can see the section breaks. In other view, they just look like page breaks...

    Regarding uploading, maybe the file is too large? Or maybe you previewed your post -- which is good -- but then you have to re-browse the file location so it uploads when you click Post it.

    In addition to Jefferson's remarks: if the document is too large to attach (we have a limit of 100 KB), create a zip file containing the document and attach that.

    Re: different header per page (word 2002)

    Hello HansV, Jscher:

    No worries, I delete the header, and only kept the footer part, I did not like the extra page, from the section break.

    I have another question. I have a table that I created, that has four cells horiziontal, and eight verticle, I can completely fill in the cells with information, as the info has not been provided. I am trying to leave room for more infomation.

    I need to insert a new page and continue the table, what is the best way to create this new page?

    Thanks

    I'm not sure what exactly you mean.

    By default, the height of the rows in a table is automatic, i.e. Word increases/decreases the height as needed to fit the cell contents. If you wish, you can set the row height to an exact amount or to at least a specified amount:
    - Click anywhere in the table.
    - Select Table | Select | Table or press Alt+5 (on the numeric keypad) to select the entire table.
    - Select Table | Table Properties...
    - Activate the Row tab.
    - Tick the check box 'Specify height'.
    - Specify a height in the text box next to it.
    - Select either 'At least' or 'Exactly' in the dropdown list.
    - Click OK.

    Re: different header per page (word 2002)

    Hello HansV

    What I meant was that I am creating cells without the proper detailed infomation, I have added some text, but not all per cell. I have dones a hard section break to go onto the next page.

    I just don't want the user to start adding the information,only to find the table splitting in the wrong sections, so I wanted to leave room for additional text.

    Your rewritten explantion as usual is fab, will keep your instructions in mind.

    can you confirm for me that 6 pt is equal to one return and 12 pt is equal to two returns?

    No more questions for tonight, I promise.

    Re: different header per page (word 2002)

    How many points per line depends on the font size and line spacing.
    In Word, the default setting for line spacing is 'Single', i.e. let Word figure it out based on font size. So 18 point text will have a larger spacing than 12 point text. Space before and space after set in the Format | Paragraph dialog also affects line spacing (at the first / lasty line of a paragraph).

    With 12 point Times New Roman and single line spacing, a line will be about 15 points high.
