I am translating a document using Word 2000, which requires an identical footer for the first four pages but not the last two. I can't find any way of deleting the footer from the last two pages. I tried putting in a Section Break, but the footer still continues after it. Can anyone tell me how to delete it selectively?

Section Break and then Jul 1, 2007

After having put in a section break at the right position double click the footer you wish to delete (behind the section break, right?).

Word displays a special toolbar for the footers and one of the icons is for connecting this footer with the previous ones (I have only the German version installed, so I cannot tell you the correct button names, sorry). Per default it is activated. You have to click this button once to disconnect the footer from the footer before the section break. After that you can delete the footer.

If you wish to delete the header as well, you have to repeat the process of disconnecting it first.

Hope that helps.

I just went through this ... Jul 1, 2007

Claudia is right, and although I'm using Word 2003, I thought I add this info: When you click on "View Header and Footer," a "Header/Footer" bar appears and the icon is just to the left of the one that toggles between the header and footer (or fourth from the end of the bar). When I hold the mouse over it, it says "Link to ..."

Good luck!
