Create permanent footer word 2010

Q: Create permanent footer word 2010

i know how to create a footer.

i want to create a permanent footer that has

file name and path
date file was created
page x of y

it would automatically be inserted in each new document.

help please.

Preferred Solution: Create permanent footer word 2010

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Create permanent footer word 2010

You can create a template to use for each document you create. Because each document will have three unique sets of data, you need to use placeholders. Word provides three choices for page x of y. However, a fourth option can be custom configured. Word will automatically enter the page numbers for you. The other data (file name and path and date file was created) would have to be entered manually when creating the document. Each new page will automatically include the manually entered data. It is not real obvious how to do this. I had to play with it for about fifteen minutes to figure it out.

The steps to set up the footer template include:
configure the footer
save as a template
The steps to use the template include:
create new document from template
enter data for file name and path and date file was created
escape the header that is automatically created.
type your document
I can walk you through the steps if you will tell me which of the following options you want to use for the footer.

file name and path [spaces placed here] date file was created [spaces placed here] page x of y

vertical left justified:
file name and path
date file was created
page x of y

vertical centered:
file name and path
date file was created
page x of y

vertical right justified:
file name and path
date file was created
page x of y

I am sure that there is a way to script a macro for this, but that is way above my pay grade.

Anyway reply back with the option you would like to use, and I will walk you through it. It may take more than one post to make sure that everything works like you want it to. If you have the patience, I do too.

The company I'm with recently updated from Word 2003 to Word 2010. I have a document (created before I started) which we use to print gift certificates. In the lower right hand corner of the footer we have a code which was created to track the number of the gift certificate. GCID#010-#####

In Word 2003, I used to be able to just select the ##### area, click on Page Number and type in a number (ie 01100) and then subsequent numbers would fall into line.. 01101, 01102, etc.

When I open the document in Word 2010 and attempt to do this, nothing happens. I even attempted to click on the Page Number option, set my starting page number in the footer to 01101 and still nothing happens. I even deleted the footer, recreated it and attmepted to setup the same number scheme as above but was unable to even get the number to show up correctly. It kept starting at a page number of 845, regardless what number I selected.

I'm looking for any suggestions/solutions to create an increasing page number in a footer of Word 2010 as I described above.

Edit: As I was looking further into the footer editing, I noticed the 01100 portion of the number is listed as a Frame and consists of the last 4 numbers - 1100. I was able to open an edit option of the frame but it only gave me Text wrapping and size adjustments.

We have a lot of templates (100+) set up in Word that everybody in the company uses.
For some reason, mine does not have a header set up, but everybody else's does!
Our IT guy told me to copy and paste it to all the templates but this does not seem the most efficient way and I don't want to save my signature over master templates.

It seems like there should be an easier solution.

Hi, all!

I'm hoping someone can help me to create what I need. I am tasked with printing a page that can be folded in half, with the same number showing on each half. It will be folded top-to-bottom, so the number has to be flipped upside down on the bottom half of the page. I've attached a sample of what it should look like. I did this with two text boxes. However, I need one document that will contain aprox 350 numbers like this, in order. I can only figure out how to do one page at a time, and it won't let me copy-and-paste to a new page. It will take me a month to do these one page at a time!

Does anyone know a better way to do this quickly???

The hard part is that it has to autoupdate.

If You go into Word 2003, it is in View and header and Footer. You can then drag the box into your Toolbar. you will most likely find that your friend has a template to default or something if they have the header and footer toolbar come up when they open word. As it should only open when you have selected the header and Footer command under the View Menu.

In Word 2002, how does one suppress a footer on one page only?

I have a contract that is a document that has two footers on each page. One is a short line for the initials of the parties to the contract with the word INITIALS below it. The other footer is the page number. On the last page there are signature lines for the parties so the line for initials is not needed.

Searching the Microsoft support site I discovered two possible options. I could not make either work.

The first option was to insert a section break as a next page on the next to the last page so that the last page was a different section. I did this and then deleted the initial line footer on the last page. It disappeared on all pages.

The second option was to insert a conditional field on the first page footer that read IF PAGE NUMBER < TOTAL PAGES "XX" where the XX was the line for initials. Alas I could not make that work either. (I am not experienced using fields and CTRL f9 or ALT f9.)

Any suggestions?

A:Suppressing A Footer In Word

I got this to work by using a conditional field. Here is what I did. Is there a better way?

I selected the text in the footer that I want on all pages except the last one.

I used a CTRL X to cut it.


(Where PAGE NUMBER is the insert current page number function from the header / footerand tool bar and TOTAL PAGE NUMBES is the insert total number of pages function}

I pressed CTRL F9

I inserted the cursor between the quotation marks and inserted the text that I had cut.

I pressed F9.

Hi guys,

I've got a bit of a problem with footers in Microsoft Word. Basically, the footer appears to be normal - say one of three pages when in Print View. If you then try to print it out, it says one of one, two of two, three of three etc. I am using the two commands on the Header/Footer toolbar as well.

I have also noticed that if you view each page in Print Preview, then the problem is solved - but you have to actually view each page.

Seems a bit weird to me, perhaps some setting has been changed somehow?

Thanks for your help!

I often work on a Word file over many days or weeks and like to keep prior versions. I append the date to the end of the file name as in Blue Sky 2009-0809, Blue Sky 2009-0810, etc.

My practice is to put the file name in the footer. How can I get Word to put the file name in the footer automatically? I've been inserting/changing it manually, but sometimes I forget. I think Excel will do this, but I do not see a way to make Word do it.

Hi All,

I have both WordPerfect 12 and Word 2003 on my computer. Note that I do most of my document creating in WordPerfect because I believe that WordPerfect gives greater control over what you want to do than Word.

I created a document in WP with a footer that contains my reference source for information that I cited. I converted this document to Rich Text format. The problem is that the document from the WP transfer formatted fine, except for the footer reference. When I go to Print Preview in Word or to Page Layout the footer is not there. HOWEVER, if I go to edit the footer in Word, it is there. It just is not coming through on Print Preview.

I tried just editing the footer in Word, thinking that the WP format did not carry over. The footer still does not appear in Word. How do I get Word to show the WP footer?


A:WordPerfect 12 to Word 2003 Footer Help

Hey All,

There seems to be very different parameters between Word and WP's handling of document headers and footers. I opened Word and did a Edit/Select All, to copy the text to the Clipboard. I suppose I could have opened up Notepad, and copied it into that. However, I wanted to retain formatting. So instead, I opened up Wordpad. (The very poor man's version of MS Word, with no spell check our special options that is a part of Windows.) Pasting the document into WordPad, I was finally able to successfully create and show the footer. (Just had to re-type the footer.)

Word accepts WordPad's footer formatting features, so when doing WP to Word file conversions, users may have to use the clipboard to move from one pure MS based supported Windows program to the other pure MS Windows based program. In my case, needing to transfer from Word Pad to Word for a successful footer transfer.

One area where I have always found Word to be better than WP is in Internet File based transfers. I thought Footer formats would work better between Word and WP. I will leave this topic open if anyone knows easier ways to do document header/footer transfers between Word and WP to comment.

I'm doing a LONG document in Word 2007, and I cannot understand how to do the first few pages on the footer with an i and then ii for the second page (and, then on the third page to start it as Page 1 and so on throughout the document).

Hi everybody,
how does one delete a footer in Word 2000? I have a document in which I had a footer, which I later wanted to get rid of. I couldn't find out how to delete it. The only thing I could think of was to go into the footer and delete all the text. Then the footer isn't visible any more. It is however "still there" in some ways. I notice that the spell checker goes there to check, and that a style "footer" insists on being in the document. So it is not really gone. How can I get rid of it completely?

In another document I have an "invisible footer" which still contains text. The footer is never visible when I edit the document, and it is never printed, but when I spell check the document, it complains about the spelling in the footer. Strange, I think. How did I get into this situation? How do I get rid of it completely?

I have Word 2000

Mats Westholm

A:{SOLVED}Word 2000 deleting a footer ?

I've had this happen before. Finally figured out that we'd taken a different odd/even setup document and changed it to normal layout. What was still stored was the other section header. Try changing the entire document to different odd/even page layout, delete all of the headers and footers, then change it back. You could also try setting up for different first page to see if any additional stuff is "stored" there. Make sure when you change layouts that you've got "whole document" and not "this section only" selected.

Hope this helps. Welcome to TSG.

Dear all,

Thank you for reading and answering to my urgent query. I have a document with Exposure pre-format footer (It only set the footer to the right of the document). As I have to print double-sided, I select the 'Different Odd & Even Pages' option, but it shows nothing on the even page, and there is no same footer design for even page to choose from.

Is there any way to change the Exposure footer to display on the left of the document.

Thank you!

A:Word 2007: Preformat footer problem

Thank you for reading. I have somehow managed to find the solution.

1) After selecting the 'Different Odd & Even Pages' option, in the even page, choose Exposure footer again.
2) Select the footer and right-click, choose 'Table Properties'.
3) Under Table tab, choose Left alignment.

The footer should display on the right of the document in odd pages, and on the left side in even pages.

Thank you!

Hi - I am trying to write a simple macro for MS Word (I'm using 2007 but would like it to work for 2003 too ideally)

The macro should:
insert a website address and company details into the footer of the first page of a document and then
insert a logo into the footer of all subsequent pages.
I'm a bit of a newbie and I've tried to record a macro to do this but it puts everything into the first footer.

I have searched through these forums and come up with a macro that lets me place text into the first page only - but I can't then add the alternative footer for subsequent pages.

Here's my macro (apologies in advance....)
Sub footer()
' footer Macro

ActiveDocument.PageSetup.DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter = True
Selection.Font.Size = 8
Selection.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = wdAlignParagraphRight
Selection.TypeText Text:= _

ActiveWindow.View.Type = wdPrintView

What I found was that using Office Button/ Word Options (at the foot) and then Advanced; there is - right at the very end of the advanced options - a section which says "Lay Out this document as if created in.." and I selected Word 2003. This immediately revealed the H&Fs as per Word 2003 and I was able to edit them. Moreover .. when I reverted to viewing as 2007 layout it was still there AND the H&F menu section had appeared on the Insert Ribbon AND it has continued to appear on re-starting Word. So it must have been a "first-time" problem on switching over to 2007.
(But why does it have to be so complicated ???)

Frustrated new member here...I am trying to figure out how to make my letterhead logo only appear on the first page of a 2003 Word document. I figured out how to add the header and footer, but it wants to print out on every page. How do I limit it to just the first page? Any wisdom, greatly appreciated.

A:Word 2003 Header/Footer First Page Only Help Needed!


Short answer is -- make the first page a separate section, then apply the header/footer to just that section.

If you get stuck putting this into practice, post back.

ETA: read "How to Create Different Headers and Footers for Sections of a Document" here.

Dear all,

I have a Word 2007 document that contains 3 pages. A table runs continuously in the 3 pages. The table remains as 1 table when I added in a footer.

But when I select 'Different Odd & Even Pages' option, it changes to 4 pages. As part of the table in page 2 goes to page 3, it leaves a big space in page 2.

How can I let the table appear as it is before I select the 'Different Odd & Even Pages' option?

Thank you very much.

I have a large number of Word files and would like to add a footer or header to each showing the filename. I know how to do it by opening each file one at a time but this will be quite time consuming and I was wondering if there was a way to do a batch of files at once? Any suggestions would be much appreciated as there is quite a large number of files I need to change.Thanks.

A:Inserting Header/footer In Multiple Word Files

I can't think of a way of doing this to previously saved files but if you edit the normal.dot file to have this on then it will do this for all new documents.

The only other way would be to use a VB script to add it on opening of a file. This would mean coding it and then opening every file. The only advantage to this is hat you would not need to do manually for every file.

Any way of displaying header/footer info on all pages but the last page.

i.e x of y for 6 pages.
page 5 should still say 5 of 6, but page 6 should display no header or footer.

A:Solved: Word - Remove header/footer from last page.

Hi ittrain,

Insert a Section break before the last page, then for the Header / Footer in that section ensure that it is blank, and not 'same as previous'.

I have managed to lose the drop down menu that displays when one selects Header/Footer from the "View" option on the Word toolbar.

What I did was accidentally drag it over the toolbar and released the mouse button which resulted in the drop down menu not displaying when I select Header/Footer from the "View" option.

What does happen when I select Header/Footer is the header and footer in the document currently open displays the header/footer boxes.
I can edit what exists in the open document but there is no way to create new headers/footers or use the options normally available on the Header/Footer drop down menu.

I've searched on just about every word and phrase I can think of in Word Help, but alas it's not being very helpful. Perhaps someone here can help me out.

Many thanks!

A:Retrieving Word Header/Footer Drop Down Menu

The toolbar should have embedded itself in the main toolbar in that case. You should be able to grab the left hand end of it and undock it.

If that does not work for some reason, I think toolbar settings are held in "normal.dot", so with Word closed, search for and rename any "normal.dot" files to "normal.old". Then restart Word.

You will need to enable hidden files and folders under Search or you will not find the file(s). There must be at least one.

Normal.dot is the default template, and when Word does nor find the file when it runs, it creates a new one with all standard defaults.

I'm trying to get a Word template that has the auto-text "file name and path" inserted into the footer. I want it to update automatically whenever I save the document into a new directory. Right now it stays the same. Can anyone point me in the right direction? This is a work computer that does NOT have the ribbon.


A:Microsoft Word 2003 Header-Footer Question

you just want to to state where it resides in the footer? in the header/footer section, select footer > tools button on the toolbar > insert auto text > filename and path. Then save the template, should be good to go.
