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.

Shows how to add/remove sections in a document.
Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

builder.Write("Section 1");
builder.Write("Section 2");

// This shows what is in the document originally. The document has two sections

// Delete the first section from the document

// 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();

// Check what the document contains after we changed it
