How do I stop the header on my letterhead from printing on each page? I use Word 2000.

You can insert a "section break," and remove the header for the pages you want to be blank.

Response by poster: That doesn't seem to work. The header still remains on the second page. Argh!

You want to open up the headers and footers toolbar (view menu), select Document Layout (it's an icon of an open book), and then select different first page.

Response by poster: I tried the different first page and that didn't work either.

I'm going to ask the obvious: where is your letterhead text stored? In Word's header section? As an include? It could even be pre-printed on to the paper for all we know... Until you tell us that, we're just giving you the obvious answers, which aren't working for you...

I haven't used that in a while but IIRC there is a header/footer selection under "view". Check there and you should be able to suppress or delete the header and/or select which pages you want it on.

Khalad is on the right track, but there's one more step.

1) create a new section on the page you want the headers to be blank.

2) On the first page to have a blank header, the same page as step 1, double-click on the header to edit it. Find the "do this header like the previous one" button on the edit bar that pops up. It looks like the tops of two pages side-by-side with a arrow linking them. Turn this button off.

3) Now delete the header.

That should do it.
