Default section issue

When formatting sections, you pretty much have to go to the very beginning of
the document and run through the sections in order being sure that "same as
previous" is turned on or off on each different page of the section (first,
odd, even, if you have all three) in both headers and footers.

If you add a Section Break at the very end of the document and check all those
things immediately, you might not have problems with it.

Please don't delete previous discussion.

That suggests that "Different Odd and Even" is checked. It, too, is inherited
from the previous Section when you put a Section Break at the end of a document.

Oh, you're not talking about handling pages within sections, but about the
different kinds of Section Break.

You probably have a lot of Section Breaks in your document because you
experimented.

The way to see them is to change to Draft View. You can then Select and
Delete the ones you don't want.

Are you restarting page numbering to 1 for your new section? In that
case, Word often forces the section start onto the following odd page.
This may also happen when "Different odd and even" is selected for
headers and footers in Page Setup.

As Peter suggested, you should look at the document in Draft view and
figure out if you have excessive section breaks.

For "everything" on sections in Word, see
