You can do this in Word 97 without making each page a separate section.
Define a style for your section numbers (IA.123 and similar), then insert a
STYLEREF field into your page header. If you select the appropriate
switches for the field, the header will pick up the first (or last,
whichever you specify) paragraph with that style on the page. E-mail me
offlist if you want the procedure spelled out in detail.
