Remarks

A Microsoft Word document can contain multiple sections. To create a section in a Microsoft Word, select the Insert/Break command and select a break type. The break specifies whether section starts on a new page or on the same page.

Programmatically inserting and removing sections can be used to customize documents produced during mail merge. If a document needs to have different content or parts of the content depending on some criteria, then you can create a "master" document that contains multiple sections and delete some of the sections before or after mail merge.

Examples
Shows how to add/remove sections in a document.
// Open the document.
Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "Section.AddRemove.doc");

// This shows what is in the document originally. The document has two sections.
Console.WriteLine(doc.GetText());

// Delete the first section from the document
doc.Sections.RemoveAt(0);

// Duplicate the last section and append the copy to the end of the document.
int lastSectionIdx = doc.Sections.Count - 1;
Section newSection = doc.Sections[lastSectionIdx].Clone();
doc.Sections.Add(newSection);

// Check what the document contains after we changed it.
Console.WriteLine(doc.GetText());
