    No space between pages in Word Pro 2003
    I have Microsoft Office Pro 2003. When I clicked on the Word icon to open up a new document today, I noticed that there were no spaces between the three pages of data that I had pasted on it. Just dotted lines that signified what I guess you would call a page break.

    Let me see if I can explain that better. It used to be that when I opened up Word to start a new document, there was one white page displayed with a colored border all the way around it. I don't know where that border or color comes from or how to change the color. I just see it in front of me.

    Then, after I finish typing on page 1, Word automatically brings up page two, but there's a good quarter inch of space between the two pages and I can even see that color I mentioned.

    Obviously something is wrong and either there's a setting somewhere that will restore it to the way I described above or I'll have to run a repair installation on Office, maybe even an uninstall and reinstall.

    But first, your thoughts.
    Thank you

    Bottom LEFT corner there are several icons.
    From your description it sounds like you have Normal View selected but you want to use Print Layout View

    Try it out and let us know.

    Hey Curlyben... Keeping you guys busy, aren't I! I opened up a document that had three pages of data on it. It was in Normal view, but when I clicked Print Layout View, all that did was open up one big page with the three pages all on it together, but smaller in size. I was also able to see the color now. See attached screenshot.

    What the heck is going on here?
