Click on the page that you want to change the orentation of, and then go to the

Page Layout Tab, Page Setup Group, and look in the Breaks menu .

You will see four-five different section breaks you can choose. If you have an existing document, it is best to use the “Continuous” section break.

Try to change the orentation again… you will notice it will change it for the current section (section 2).

Now all the pages after that page are landscape..We just repeat the process to create a third section using the Continuous Section Break, then change the orentation back to where we wanted it to be.

It works in Office Word 2007  and 2010.

    Great. But how to continue page numbers?

  28. 28. Marie Says:

    Sorry, this didn’t work for me. I have MS Word 2010 and it throws in an extra (empty) page that can’t be removed. Since I’m working with page limits, this is a really, really frustrating problem. Any help would be appreciated.

    Marie: The same thing happened to me at first, but I realized I already had a page break for the point at which I restarted the 3rd section. So I went back and started it over after removing that page break, and it worked fine (no blank page inserted).

    To reformat page number, go to Header/Footer –> Format Page Numbers and choose ‘Continue from previous’

  42. 42. RKRK Says:
