Microsoft Word/disappearing section breaks in MS Word 2010

Advertisement


Question
Hi Dave,
I am editing a large technical document.  I've used section breaks for years to separate TOC page numbering from Chapter numbering.  Mysteriously, I am having an issue where I lose the next page section break following the TOC when I update fields or save.  Every time.  Which then screws up the page numbering.  I can't figure out what changed.  Something in a style?  What would make this happen?
Any thoughts or suggestions extremely appreciated!
Thanks,
Lisa Young

Answer
Hi Lisa,

Just for the record; I must report that I donít have Word 2010 and have yet to be convinced that I need it.

Feel free to ask one or all of the other volunteers about this issue.

One of them just may have run into a similar situation and they all are a lot smarter than I am.

Good Luck.

Experience

Microsoft Office and Microsoft Word in particular is one of the most popular programs that our firm, Computer Help provides instruction, one on one tutoring and consultation. I personally use MS Word for almost every task: Envelopes, Mailing Labels, Database, WordArt, Interactive Forms, Faxes, Letters, Lists, Newsletters, Tables, Email Editor and much more. The exception, Graphics and Web Pages. For graphics I use Ulead's PhotoImpact and Microsoft's FrontPage for web site design.
