I have a Word document with close to 5000 pages.  The document has page breaks, but they are all in the wrong places.  I need to remove the current page breaks and insert new breaks.  The document contains the wording "PROGRAM NO", which should appear at the top of every page.  So for every instance of "PROGRAM NO", I want to go up one line and insert a page break, but I'm not sure how to do it.

If the current page breaks are soft (or automatic), i.e. they only occur when the page overflows, you simply need to insert some hard (or manual) page breaks:

Use Edit/Find

In the Find Box: PROGRAM NO
In the Replace : ^mPROGRAM NO

Why would you not put "Program No" in the document header if you wanted it at the top of every page?
