Question Printing a document with multiple sections with different headers and footers


I have a word document with different sections - each section having different headers and footers. It looks fine until I try to print it. As soon as I go to print preview the sections revert to having the header from the first page.... When I back out of printing, close the document and open it again - it looks like I want it to.


SO FRUSTRATED!

Have you tried repairing the Office installation (via Windows Control Panel > Programs > Programs & Features > Microsoft Office (version) > Change > Repair)?

Also, make sure your system's screen drivers are fully updated.

How was the header content added? Is it possible that the header contains a field which updates as you switch to print preview?
