Default Anchoring a section break to the bottom of a page, and having a table pass over it???

Hi,

I have a document that I'm trying to make easier to use. This is a 'form' (using the term loosly) where people will open up the template, edit fields in the table on the form, and save it with a new name.

There are headers and footers on the form, and the second page's header has to be a little different. So at the bottom of the table I added a section break to do this.

This becomes a little difficult when people start to fill in the bottom half of the table, as the height of each row will change as the cell expands due to word wrap and the number of characters needed varies. This pushes the remaining cells that were below to the next page along with the section break. Careful deletion of rows to account for larger previous rows can fix this, but unfortunately not everyone is so careful.

Can I somehow anchor the section break to the bottom of the first page so that I can have page 2 always start as section 2? It would be nice if, as rows expand they just jumped over this section break... but I'm probably just dreaming there... but I have to ask, is there a way?



I uploaded the example as an attachment, I'm sure my description could use some work.

Default Section break anchor

Instead of using a section break, try this:

Go to your page set up options and select the Layout tab. Check the box that says "Different first page."

Does that do the trick for you?
