A

Sections in Microsoft Word allow you to divide a document into different parts, so that you can format each part differently.

For example, if you want the top part of a page to display text in one column, and the bottom part to display text in two columns, you need to add a section break in the middle to separate them.

You can use sections to make (or fence in) formatting changes on the same or different pages in your document for formatting task like:

  • Rotate a page to landscape or portrait orientation - You need to add a section break before the rotation and a section break after the rotation.
  • Change header and/or footer for each chapter of a book - You need to add a section break before each chapter.
  • Restart page numbering from 1 after table of contents You need to add a section break after table of contents.
  • Change from one column to two columns - You need to add a section break before the change.
  • Change page borders and margins - You need to add a section break before the change.
