Word 2003 - Word 2007

Specs: XP, P4
I created a 2 page Word document using Word 2007. When the document is opened using Word 2003, it shows a 3 page document, with the second page being completely blank. What is causing this?

It could be caused by different page set-ups, such as the top and bottom margins.

Try clicking in the middle of the third page so your insertion point is at the end of the document. Then press the backspace key to delete any extra line feeds that are at the end of the document.

But it does not make sense, if I open the document using Word 2007, I see only two pages.
But when I open it up on a computer running Word 2003, I see two pages.
The document should open up with the way it was created using Word 2007, regarding the margins and etc..

>>But it does not make sense
Who ever said that MS had to make sense. Especially Office 2007....

Look here for:
Troubleshoot page breaks and section breaks 2007


In part is says:

If you inadvertently format a manual page break (page break: The point at which one page ends and another begins. Microsoft Word inserts an "automatic" (or soft) page break for you, or you can force a page break at a specific location by inserting a "manual" (or hard) page break.) as hidden text and then specify that hidden text is not printed, Microsoft Word ignores the manual page break. The new page won't display when viewed in Print Preview (print preview: A view of a document as it will appear when you print it.) (File menu), and the new page won't print.

Could this be your problem??

Fine, it doesn't make sense.

Did you try my suggestion?

I'm sorry, I found out that she did not create the document from scratch, she used a template or something which is most likely what is causing the problem. I'm not going to bother persuing this any further. I apologize. Thanks for helping.
