Can you explain.
"Word moves the continuous section break up to the previous section break"
Sorry, but I don't understand.
And I don't see much problems with having a superfluous section break generally.
RE: Can you explain
I guess it's no big deal to have an extra section break in a document as long as the headers and footers are behaving.
What happens is that I have multiple "next page" section breaks. When I try to remove the continuous one, the "next page" break that occurs next earliest in the document is replaced by the continuous break.
Some are from the page length.
Does this break move if you change the page size from 8x11 to 8x14?
The following site explains section breaks, and why your continuous break moves up to replace the previous breakwhen you delete it. Paragraph formatting is also affected in a similar manner. This is apparently ?by design,? though only MS knows why.
At the end of the article is a section on merging sections, which is what you are doing by deleting a section break. The work around seems a little clumsy to me, but should work.
Hope this helps
...and everyone else who responded. I'll try the site you mentioned.

Remove/Delete a Page Break from a Word Document
Try the below;
a. Change your Word Document from Print Layout to Normal View. To Switch = Toolbar = "View" = "Normal".
b. Page breaks are identified in the Normal view document as dotted lines (page breaks you insert are identified as ''Page Break''.
c. On the screen click on the left edge of the dotted lines and select the page break.
d. Press the [Delete] key or click on the Cut button. You can also click below the page break, then press [Backspace].

Delete Section Break
I'm using Word on a MacBook. It was a simple solution and it worked, thanks!
this solution is really simple and works great!
To get rid of a continuous section break successfully (so it doesn?t keep replacing the previous Next Page section break): First highlight a few lines above and after the continuous section break (including the continuous section break itself) then go to File - Page Setup - Layout - Next to ?Section Start? choose ?New Page". This will change the continuous section break to a new page section break. Then just delete the new page section break. BAM your done
You are my HERO!!! This is a problem that has been troublesome for me and numerous colleagues!
I tried this... and it worked for me.
Im running WinXP, Office 2003 also.
1. Place a section break (next page) before and after the section break (continuous).
2. Delete the section break (next page) after the section break (continuous).
3. Now delete the section break (continuous).
Hope this works for others who encounter the same problem...
I just had this problem. I was also tracking changes within the document at the time. I had 2 section breaks where my problem on. One deleted normally. The other, I put my cursor on it, then right click chose "Accept Deletion" and then the 2nd section break went away without changing anything else in my document. Hope this helps.
Track Changes was my problem!
The track changes bit was what I needed! Section breaks had been deleted but weren't showing as deleted until I accepted those changes! Thanks for mentioning that!! Thank you, thank you I have been trying to solve this for a loooong time. I understand that it's by design, but I didn't think of it! Thanks again, profuse thanks for mentioning that
