Changing type of section breaks in Word using VBA

I would like to change next-page section breaks into odd-page section breaks in Word using VBA. How come this code below does not work? I guess Word gets upset since the page numbering has to be rebuild completely, then?

Sub ChangeSecBrk()
Dim sec As Section
For Each sec In ActiveDocument.Sections
    If sec.PageSetup.SectionStart = wdSectionNextPage Then
        sec.PageSetup.SectionStart = wdSectionOddPage
    End If
Next sec
End Sub

Strangely enough, I tried to change "odd-page" section breaks into "next-page" section breaks using above VBA syntax (and adjusting the code) and the odd-page section breaks turned into continuous ones.
