Windows – Why does the whole document change page orientation instead of just a single page

microsoft wordmicrosoft-word-2007windows 7

I want to make just one page in my document change from portrait to landscape orientation. I have followed the instructions for How can I make just one page of a Word document horizontal?

However, the whole document changes to landscape orientation! How can I prevent this? I'm using Word 2007 on Windows 7.

The page layout applies to sections. Normally all pages of a document are in one section. You have to break your document into three sections (two section breaks). Apply the page orientation to the appropriate section only.

For word 2007 see scribd: Changing Orientation of a single page with Word 2007

If you show formatting marks, you should see two of ::::::Section Break(New Page)::::::
