Extra large header area

In Word 2003, I put in a section break, next page for the last page of my doc. For some reason, the header area takes up half the page, and I can't seem to make it smaller. I can't readjust the dotted lines that designate the header area. How can I make the header area smaller so it doesn't take up half the page?

Thanks,

Check your vertical alignment settings for that section of your document. I've seen issues similar to this with the vertical alignment set to Center.

1. File > Page Setup > Layout tab
2. Under Page, change the Vertical Alignment setting to Top
3. Under Apply to: box, select Whole Document
4. Click OK
