I have a fairly large document with headers and footers on each page. I
would like to select an entire page including the header and footer to copy
to another new document? any help would be appreciated
Thank You

To include the header and footer, you need to copy the section break (if
any) at the end of the selection or the final paragraph mark of the
document. See http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Formatting/WorkWithSections.htm

This is a document that was passed along to me for my use in a project. Once
again, a new user stumped. I don't have a clue as to whether or not there is
a section break? Do you mean a hard return at end of page

When you reply you have to remember I am using 2007. It has no File heading
in its ribbon at the top of the page. I am ready to throw in the towel on
Word and go back to WP

OK
On ribbon is main heading insert, and there is sub drop down insert section
break. We will see what happens

So, if someone thinks page or section breaks are confusing or convoluted in
MSW 97-03 format, you should take a look at what you have to deal with in
MSW 2007 under page layout/breaks

If you insert a section break at the end of the portion you want to copy and
include the section break in the copied portion, it will transfer the
formatting.
