Default (2003) Different first page when using letter wizard

I have used the letter wizard to set up my letter leaving a 5cm space for my
letterhead. However, for some reason, Word is assuming I wish to print every
page of my letter on headed paper, and has left a 5cm gap at the top of
every page (there are two pages). I have attempted to use the header and
footer settings and set 'different first page' but that hasn't worked -
there is *STILL* a 5cm gap at the top of the second page.

How do I set it (and I'm sure there must be a setting I'm overlooking) so
that the gap is only at the top of the first page - different odd and even
hasn't worked either.

Word 2003 SP1 on Windows XP Pro SP2.

Or am I blonde?

I should add that I cannot add a section/page break as it buggers up my
numbered bullets.

I don't know if you just let the wizard take care of everything, but I
would suggest that before you print, you can go into the second page and
use the Page Setup option and change the margin to whatever you want
and select it to take affect from this point forward. That should allow
every page after the first page to have normal margins versus taking on
the first page margins setup.

You can find the Page Setup under the File menu.

I would suggest creating and using your own template rather than the letter
wizard. It is clunky and doesn't produce good letterhead. For more on the
different kinds of templates, tabs on the file new dialog, and locations of
templates folders see http://addbalance.com/usersguide/templates.htm.

Take a look at: How to set up letterhead or some other document where you
want one header on the first page and a different header on other pages.
http://www.addbalance.com/word/headersfooters.htm This gives step-by-step
instructions. (It also has the following links)

Some other pages to look at:

Letterhead Tips and Instructions
http://home.earthlink.net/~wordfaqs/Letterhead.htm

Letterhead Textboxes and Styles tutorial
http://addbalance.com/word/download....StylesTutorial

Template Basics
http://www.addbalance.com/usersguide/templates.htm

How to Create a Template - Part 2 - essential reading
http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/Custom...platePart2.htm

Word "Forms"
http://www.addbalance.com/word/wordw...rces.htm#Forms and

Word for Word Perfect Users
http://www.addbalance.com/word/wordperfect.htm if you are coming from a WP
environment (or even if you are not).

If you are interested in creating templates that will work with the letter
wizard or use that wizard, you should look at the chapter on Advanced
Document Formatting in Using Office 2003 (or whatever your version is),
Special Edition, by Ed Bott and Woody Leonhard. It has detailed instructions
including instructions on getting the fields you want from your Outlook
Contacts for addressing a letter. (Chapter 19 of SE Using Office 2003) You
should be able to get this through your public library or at Amazon.com
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/IS...ncecheckbookA/

Finally, take a look at the letter templates that come with Word. While they
are no great shakes as letterhead, they do use styles and AutoText lists
very well. If you use the same style names that are used in those templates
in your own letterhead for the same parts of the document, you will have
better luck with using the built-in AutoText entries in Word.

Hope this helps,
