    I'm running Word 200 on Vista. I have a book - pages are 6 x 9.

    I have a book with many sections. There are no page numbers for the first 6 sections. When I start the odd and even page numbers (they start at page 3), the odd pages are positioned in the footer correctly and increment properly for the rest of the document. But the evens, which are positioned correctly do not increment. They're all page 4. I called Microsoft 's Word 2007 free-for-30-days tech support (they're in India) and the guy spent two hours and couldn't figure it out. BUT I NOTICED AFTERWARDS THE FOLLOWING:

    When the odd page numbering begins, THE HEADERS COMPLETELY DISAPPEAR. Not even their "shadows" are there. But I can't get the even headers to disappear. Or the footers to disappear.

    1) The reason why I want the headers to go away is that it may make the even page numbers work like the odd page numbers.

    2) Or, failing that, if I can get the footers to disappear I can definitely lower the margin, since I will have freed up that space -- and I can enter the page numbers by hand. The page numbers can be no higher than .5 from the bottom. But the closest I can get them now, lowering margins, is about 7/8" (.875).

    Can either the headers or the footers be deleted entirely --like you could do in earlier versions of Word?
