Help! Every second page in my Word Doc is blank

Copper Contributor

I have been working on a very large Word Document (more than 9,000 pages).


To make things easier on myself I tried to make it so that every time the text reads "/87" that it changes it to /87 with a page break. 


I thought this had worked well, but partway through the document I noticed that every time I get to a /87 it adds a completely blank page, before resuming the document as per normal. 


Is there some way to kill off these errant blank pages. I've attached what it looks like ahead of where the page break is supposed to be.

@Noone_Important What type of page break did you insert after the /87?


If it was a manual pagebreak, you could search for /87^m and replace it with /87 to remove those page breaks.
