I'm having a heck of a time deleting section breaks after rotating page orientation in the same document:
NOTE: When you delete a section break, the text that was above the break becomes part of the section that was below the break—making them one section—and that first section will now take on the properties and formatting of the section that was initially below it.
I took a look at How to stop MS Word from skipping pages?, Continuous page numbers in Word 2007 document with section breaks, and Word replacing “next page” section breaks with continuous section breaks. I didn't find a solution.
Basically I have a document in portrait.
Right, then I needed to add a table, in portrait
But, it added a section break with a blank landscape page between the document and the table!
I also needed a landscape table, so I put that in after the vertical table and again, a blank page that's landscape!
Anytime I try to remove the page or the section break, it reverts the formatting.
- If I remove the first blank page, the entire document before the vertical table becomes landscape.
- If I remove the second blank page, the entire document becomes landscape.
I don't understand how I can fix this, manually or with VBA. Is there a way to keep a section break without a blank page? Yes, it's 2007.
