Before I devolve into a raging madwoman and do something unspeakable to
this computer.....

I have a document with multiple chapters. I insert an odd section break
between each chapter so each will start on an odd page. Do a Save, a
Ctrl+A to select the entire document, an F9 to update all the fields and
the TOC. Check the TOC, and my odd section breaks have changed - it's
magic!!! - into next page section breaks - meaning, if the preceding
page is an odd page, the chapter now starts on an even page. I have
deleted these (expletive deleted) next page section breaks and inserted
odd page section breaks I don't dare count how many times (I AM trying
to retain a shred of sanity, here).

Any clue as to why Word is ignoring my wishes (well, besides that we ARE
talking Word here), and what I can do to make the blasted program honor
what I tell it to do?
