    How do I delete an unwanted last blank page in a Word document?

    Help! Nobody knows.

    Thank you.

    just delete all the lines in the last page (by pressing Ctrl-End once and
    Backspace until the page disappears).

    if the second-last page contains a table and Word is forcing you to insert a
    new sheet, expand the Bottom Margin so that the cursor can fit to the
    second-last page as well and Word will remove the last page for you.

    This can be caused by the final paragraph mark overflowing - if so, you
    could try selecting it and either

    (a) changing its font size to 1 (or as small as need be), or
    (b) hiding it

    Enjoy,
    Tony

    Hi... try changing your "view" to "Normal"... go to the end of the documetn,
    and you will probably see that pesky blank page!
    Then just delete it.

  8. There is a great article here which describes some of the many ways that a
    blank page ends up at the end of a document.
