  1. I’m having an issue with 2007 section break/page number. I created a section break in my document and unlinked the new section from the previous section. I went into the footer of the new section and asked it to change the page number style from iii to 1,2,3 for the new section and to restart with 1. It won’t do it. Even though they are no longer linked when the new section changes so does the previous one. This is the exact instructions that Microsoft gives, so do you have any idea why it won’t work?

    • It sounds like you’re doing things correctly. My biggest tip for sections is to turn off all “Link to Previous” options for headers/footers in all your sections. Start at the header of the first section and then click Next. Click ‘Link to previous’ to make sure it is turned off, then click ‘Next Header’ to go to the next section header. Click ‘Link to previous’ to turn it off and then click ‘Next header’. Repeat until you’re in the header of the last section. Then click the ‘Go to Footer’ button. Click ‘Link to previous’ to turn it off and then click ‘Previous Footer’. Click ‘Link to previous’ to turn it off, then click ‘Previous footer’. Repeat until you’re in the footer of the first section. Essentially you’re making a loop through your headers, switching to footer and then making a loop back through your footers to the beginning…all the while, turning off “link to previous”. After that is done, then try updating your page number format. If that doesn’t work, feel free to send me the document and I’ll take a look at it. vsevans at redcapeco dot com.
