MSAccess Report has orphan group headers

I have an Access report that I need to page break after each section and I also want the group header to display on each page the section spans.  The problem is after each section, the group header is repeated at the top on the new section right above the new section name.

First lets clear up the terminology, as it is not clear what you are calling a "Group" and what you are calling a "section".

A report can display the "Group" name, not the Section name, so when you say:
<the group header is repeated at the top on the new section right above the new section name.>
I am a bit confused.

Also confusing is when you say:
<I need to page break after each section>
"Each Section"? Well a basic Grouped Report can have at leaset 7 sections.
(Report Header, Page Header, Group header, Detail, Group Footer, Page Footer and  Report Footer.)
Your statement seems to indicate that you want a page break after "each" of the seven sections.

Finally, it is not clear how many sections or grouping levels you have in your report.

In any event , you can set the "Repeat Section" property of the Section to Yes, to have it repeat on each page.

But the whole "Page break after each section" issue is still confusing.
Can you post a sample of this report with this issue clearly visible.
Then post a sample of what you need it to look like.

Here is a sample of a Report that repeats the Group Header on every page.

Thanks Jeff... sorry to be so confusing.  As a confused person, I am likely to do that.  But I did figure it out how to get rid of my problem.  And  to clarify what I was trying to ask:

The previewed report has different sections, but in design view these are only one group header based on a sorted field.  I was adding a page break at the group footer level which I later found unnecessary because I instead set its property for Force New Page - After Section.  Access actually referred to the group as a section, which is propably why I started calling it that.  

Regardless, it now works.  It created orphan section names on the previewed report when I had the Force New Page on the header.  Setting it on the footer it worked perfectly.

Am I making any sense?
