Thanks, Jamie. I have suggested this before. Oftentimes, there is a tab after 
the header and before the page number on the right page, and a tab before the 
header and after the page number on the left page. I have used this technique 
of removing headers with their associated tabs to eliminate thousands of 
headers without fear of removing text that I shouldn't.

It is also true, as you say, that search and replace should always be used with

  Lots of times there is a tab after the header. If you search for the text 
plus a tab you might have better luck in doing a global replace, but I 
recommend using a global replace very carefully.

  For example if it is The Catcher in the Rye that is the header look for The 
Catcher in the Rye^t (^t is the tab symbol in Word 2003).
