Headers/Footers and Section Breaks

Hi Community,


I have a 2010 Word document with two section breaks (I added the second section break in order to merge a file with an existing one). Each section has a header and footer, and they are unlinked.  However, when I remove the second section break, the header and footer in the first section disappears.  How can I remove the second section break (and its content) and retain the header and footer in the first section? Thank you in advance.

The simplest way is copy and paste. Copy the headers and footers that you want to retain into the last section's headers and footers. Then delete the section break.

The final paragraph mark in the document is actually the final section break. It will define the preceding section. It cannot be deleted.
