Hello Dana,

there have been some replies to your question (which immediatly come to
mind after having inspected the Help function), namely to set the Option
CellAutoOverwrite -> False.

Perhaps this will suffice to your purpose, but I noticed that if you
Plot something (inbetween your Section headlines) the Plot output will
show up behind the very end of all sections you generated with your
command, i.e. still not where you expect that. (To the contrary Print
shows up at "the right place".)

I think this is the consequence of another Option of StylePrint, namely
GeneratedCell -> True. I suppose this had been set so, such as to
generate the boxes in "the right order". But if you do

Do[StylePrint[StringJoin["Problem # ", ToString[i]], "Section", 
   GeneratedCell -> False, 
   CellAutoOverwrite -> False], {i, 10, 1, -1}]

(look at the iterator!) then everything should come fine, as then you'll
have all the same Options as if your Sections were generated by hand.

Kind regards, Hartmut
