No, you don't. Just find any old rtf file you have with page breaks in it, then change them to section breaks and back again. Just don't save the file when you're done, to be on the safe side. Or make a backup copy and put it in a different folder before you start. I would do both, that way you can play with the file without anxiety. But if you want to wait for a file with section breaks in it from the start, then just wait for Carrie's next batch of submissions, which won't be long.

Open up a .rtf file that has section breaks in it. Type control-F to get to the find command. Type alt-P to get to the replace command. (you're already positioned at the From field) Type ^b (section break) Type the tab key (to get to the To field) Type ^m (page break) Type alt-A for replace all (global replace) Could you please try this, and see if it works? It seemed to work for me. Thanks, Carrie siss52 <siss52@xxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: Carrie, I have v2002. Now do you use control f for find and replace instead of control h for search and replace? I do not see from, to, and global, but I have been doing search and replace. Could you give more details please? Gerald couldn't figure it out for me. Thanks, Sue S. ----- Original Message ----- From: Carrie Karnos To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Sunday, July 29, 2007 1:02 AM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: section breaks to page breaks In my version of Microsoft Word (MS Word 2002 SP3), if you go to the Find or Replace command, and click on More, and then click on Special, you can see the list of special characters it recognizes. Section break is ^b, page break is ^m, and column break is ^n. To change section breaks to page breaks, put ^b in the From field, ^m in the To field, and click on Global replace. Works every time for me. What version of Word do you use, Sue? I'm amazed that it doesn't work for you. Do you get an error message? Sure would be nice if we could figure this out. Carrie siss52 <siss52@xxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: Hi Lisa, Well, I haven't been able to validate Carrie's submissions because I thought the code for page breaks was ^m. That did not work, so I have always had to release them back to Step 1. So the code is really ^n? Wow! If that is true, no wonder Word would not replace the section breaks.

Here's what I do using Word 2002. First, I verify how many section breaks there are because the number of section breaks should convert exactly to page breaks when the find and replace is finished. I just use Control+end to go to the end of the file to do this. Then I go to the find and replace dialog with Control+H and type in ^b (for those who aren't using their screen reader punctuation, this is karat plus the lower case b with no spaces.), in the find box and ^n (karat plus the lower case n with no spaces)in the replace box and tab to Replace all and press enter. A dialog pops up saying that word has made X replacements. This is why I check before hand. If the new page breaks are the same as the section breaks, I save the file and go on to validating. Oh, and the karat is made by pressing shift+6 on the numbers row. Hope this helps. Lisa ----- Original Message ----- From: "E."
