Word 2007.

How do I change the Margins (in this case the 'bottom' setting) for a specific Page  in a Word Document without changing it for the Whole document? I know how to get into the Margins dialogue box (Page Layout - Margins).  Have looked at help, but am not enlightened.

Insert a new section as KCTS states before the page you want the margin changed and another one at the end of where you want the different margin  (Insert, Break, Section (next page if you want a new page or continuous if you want to keep the default page flow.  You will end up with 3 sections.  Then go to the section (2) you want the different margin and change it as susual but apply to this section only.

To expand on KCTS' comment, page layout settings, such as margins, page size, orientation, etc are on a by-section basis.

You can separate parts of a document into sections by inserting Section breaks via the  Breaks button in the 'Page Setup' group on the 'Page Layout' tab.
