    hidden section break causing loop in word (word97 sr2b)

    Hiya - we have a word document with 5 section breaks.
    we have code that updates footers - therefore it goes to the next footer.

    However when a doc doesnt have a next sequentional header/footer due to a continous section break inserted instead of being ie section 3, section 4, section 5
    so when a continous section break is inserted the headers/footers are displayed as section 3, section 5
    the code goes into a loop because it cant find section 4.

    normally i find the continous section break & amend by placing a page break & it works.
    However for this doc I cant find section 4 section break.

    I've searched all the breaks -searched for hidden text - viewed in normal view
    Is there anyway I track down this section break for section 4.
    do you need more info?
    TIA Diana

    Can you use ranges instead of selection objects? Appended below is an example that should give you enough guidance.
    <pre>Public Function HeaderTableChange(bPortrait As Boolean, iSect As Integer)
    'called by PageSetupFlip sub
    Dim aTable As Table
    With ActiveDocument.Sections(iSect)
    For Each aTable In .Headers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).Range.Tables
    If aTable.Columns.count = 3 Then
    aTable.Columns(1).Width = CentimetersToPoints(3)
    aTable.Columns(3).Width = CentimetersToPoints(3)
    If bPortrait Then
    aTable.Columns(2).Width = CentimetersToPoints(10)
    aTable.Columns(2).Width = CentimetersToPoints(19.7)
    End If
    End If 'Columns.Count EndIf
    Next aTable 'Loop for any other tables in header
    End With 'Sections(iSect) End With
    End Function</pre>
