Thanks Greg,

Not the answer I was hoping for but I will live with it. I think what I
will actually do is use my two templates, copy them and paste them over
the top of every page.

A little more time consuming that I was hoping for, but a solution none
the less. I will need to wait until after each page is complete to
complete this task. :-( At the end will be messy as I will then need to
add page titles to every page as they sit on top of the template.

Thanks for your help,
