Default Centering pages for print in Word 2003...

Hi, Suzanne, i am quite near the end of my task of typesetting my
book using Word 2003. I have just about everything in order
except the last step, and I am hoping you can help me with this,
otherwise I shall have to request the printers to solve this problem
in the course of producing the book, which could not only cost me
too much but end up getting the book's pagination wrong..

The final page size of my book sounds weird, but it is actually a
standard US & European size: 6,14" high x 9.21" wide, which is
expressed in millimeters as 234 x 156, with the height coming first.

This page size comes out printed on standard 8 1/2" x 11" office
paper, but not centered, far too close to the top of the page.
My final task is that I must exactly center these odd-sized pages
onto the standard US paper, so that the left & right marins are equal
to each other and the top and bottom margins are also equal to each
other. Otherwise the pages will not print correctly.

My left & right margins are close to perfect. But so far I am going
somewhat crazy trying to center & equalize the top & bottom
margins,.. So far as I can tell, the problem may lie in my headers &
footers, which I am so far unable to push up & down within the
required vertical page size. When i increase the "distance from
edge" of these headers & footers in the page layout tab on the
header & footer toolbar, i end up with less actual printed matter
deposited onto each page, which ends up increasing the size of the
book (its total number of pages) to an impossible degree.

Do you know of any solution to this, Suzanne...???

all the best!
