Q: How do I move sections or pages between notebooks in the OneNote Web App?

A: You can't. That's a limitation of the web app. You can copy/paste individual note containers, but not sections or pages. If you have the full version of OneNote installed on your computer you can move the sections/pages in that and those changes will be reflected next time you open the web app.

Microsoft offers a nice collection of free support forums for Microsoft OneNote.  You can post questions, read answers or even answer some questions yourself if you like.  They're free and easy and just a click away.

How to Ask a Question:  When posting a question to a newsgroup please be sure to indicate what software you're using, what version of the software you're using, what SPECIFICALLY you are trying to do and what happens when you try to do that (especially any error messages you may be receiving).  It is also helpful if you tell us what you have already tried in an effort to fix it so that we don't waste time telling you to try things you've already attempted.

What's an MVP?

An MVP or "Most Valuable Professional" is a volunteer who has been recognized by Microsoft as an expert on a particular technology.  You'll commonly find them in the Microsoft Support Newsgroups, but they can sometimes be found in other forums or lists.  They can be very helpful but keep in mind that they are only volunteers providing assistance in their spare time.
