GetHuman5312350's customer service issue with Microsoft Word from September 2020

Help with my Microsoft Word issue
The issue in GetHuman5312350's own words
I have a Word doc with a TOC, different sections and different headers and footers. In edit view there are no blank pages in the document. However, when I go to print view, an extra blank page is being added after the second page of the document. This is throwing off my page numbers, and my footers because they are different for odd and even pages. How do I get rid of this extra page that doesn't show up in edit view?? I checked for an extra page break but I don't see one.

GetHuman5312350 did not yet indicate what Microsoft Word should do to make this right.

How GetHuman5312350 fixed the problem
My document is front and back, like a book. I think Word was adding a page because it wanted odd numbered pages on one side of the doc and not the other. I couldn't figure out a way to change that so I just added a page with the statement "This page left blank intentionally". That seems to have worked.
