    I have MS Word 2002. I am using the Labels function to access Avery 3 x 5 Index card format. I want to put a header with brief topic note and page # on each card with my project text below. Whenever, I try to do this, card 1 moves to the bottom of the page and the next card of text is above it instead of the way document normally works with the 1st page at the top and the following pages descending. I never had any trouble with index cards using my WordPerfect 6 for Windows 3.1. So I am frustrated. I have a big project to brainstorm on index cards. Help!

    I'll give it a go if you want to send any current file you may have.

    What you need is to create yourself a template of the index cards. Then, in the first index card, but a form field for your title or whatever and give it a bookmark name "Title". In the remaining cards, put a cross-reference to the bookmark named "Title". When you type the title in, it'll auto-fill the rest. You'll need to learn a bit about forms:
