Microsoft Word/Word 2010 Vertical space of header too large


How can I fix the problem of the vertical space being too large in the header on only 2 pages out of 316? Have tried re-positioning the header to .4 or .5, however, all it does is change all pages headers to that same spacing and does not correct the problem on the  2 pages I am having trouble with.

Janette - you probably need to insert a next page section break before and after the 2 pages you are having the trouble with.  Section breaks allow you to change the page formatting of pages without effecting the entire document.

To find out more about section breaks go to...

This is a free tutorial from Microsoft.

I hope this helps.
