MS-Word -- Landscape on one page of a multiple page document?

I am looking for a way to make only one page of a multiple page Word document landscape. Everytime I set it, it effects the entire document opposed to just the one page

    Suppose you have 10 pages and 5th page has to be converted to Landscape layout.

    Follow these steps:

    1. Goto the page (5 in our case) which has to be made in Landscape layout.

    2. Just before that page, add SECTION BREAK. (for our example, go to page 4 and add section break)

    If you dont know how to add section break, see the information at this link:

    http://www.ehow.com/how_9207_insert-page-section.h...

    Introduction of a section break will make next page as active(the one which has to be converted to landscape). In our case, page 5 will be the current one.

    3. Open File Menu, GoTo Page Setup --> Layout and select Lanscape. Make sure to pick Choose <Apply To this section>.

    (This will make pages 5 to 10 in landscape).

    4. Now go to Page 6 and again open Page Setup and revert the page layout to portrait. (Choose apply to section).

    At the end, you should have 1-4 in portrait, 5th in landscape and 6-10 in portrait again.

    Ta!
