Chris Morton wondered: <<I'm using Word 2003 SP3 and have inherited
some docs from another user. On pages past page 1, there is a
horizontal rule above the page header that I'd like to remove, but
cannot figure out how to do so. Where is the hidden option to turn
this bloody thing off?>>

Odds are good it's a paragraph "border", and has been defined as part
of the paragraph style. So your first step is to learn what style has
been applied to these headers. Odds are good it will be the default
style for running headings, "Header". Edit the properties of this
style (in Word 2003, via the Styles palette): select the "Border"
property, and set it to "none", click your way out of the dialog, and
you should be good to go.

You can also do this manually, one instance of the problem at a time,
but editing the style definition is a better approach because it will
fix the problem once and for all.
