Word, Sections, and Headers/Footers


Crush T Velour

I am using MS Word 2002 on WinXP.

I am creating a book with multiple chapters.

I am printing on both sides of the paper since this will be used as a
"book". Naturally I want my chapters to always start on odd pages (so
they will always display on the right side.

To do this, I place a section break between chapters.


Whenever a chapter ENDS on an ODD page, naturally a blank page EVEN
will be produced between the last page of the chapter and the first
page of the second chapter.

But whenever it DOES that, the page is produced with out Headers or
Footers (i.e. it is TOTALLY blank). How can I get Word to print the
blank last even page with Headers and Footers?

If you really want this to look like a book, then you *want* the page to be
completely blank; this is publishing convention. If for some reason you
*must* have the header/footer, see
