Q: Headers and Footers Word 2000


I am using Mircosoft Word 2000 and when I try to create headers and footers in my document by selecting view - headers and footers the document opens in print preview not print layout and I am unable to edit the headers and footers.

Can anyone please offer some assistance?

Thank you.

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: Headers and Footers Word 2000

You should be able to change the view in the same area as the footers/headers. Near the top of the pull down menu there are areas that indicate normal - web - print etc. Also at the bottom of your page are buttons showing the different view modes for your document. Hit the normal view and you should be able to work on your headers/footers.

I am using Word 2003 and I have created a template containing a header/footer combination with my company letterhead information. This was working fine but the problem I now have is that when I open a new document by loading the template the header and footer are not shown. I must switch into them (using View/Header and Footer)
and they then appear. After that they stay visible. Apparently I have accidentally changed something.

My question is whether anyone knows how to have the header and footer visible by default when I open a new document using the template.

After banging my head against the wall and fighting with Visual Basic to create a template full of fancy bells and whistles for my client, I've come up against a probably simple, but amazingly annoying issue.

When I apply my template to a document, the headers and footers don't appear. I don't understand. (Yes, I click View --> Headers, Footers.) They're not there.

I go back to the template. They exist. I create a new document. They exist. I apply the template to a document with no headers/footers (or in some cases existing headers/footers) and nothing.

If it were just for me, I'd come up with a workaround. But I need to hand this template off to a client who needs to work with it. Cutting and pasting, etc, isn't going to do it.

Surely there is a way to make the headers and footers appear when applying to an EXISTING document.

Thank you so much, in advance, for any help you might provide.

I have had trouble formatting Word 2003 documents so that the header is suppressed on the first page but the footer prints. It is probably some little thing that I am missing. I am a dyed-in-the-wool WordPerfect fan and use Word only as a last resort, so am not familiar with some of the fine points of the latter. To briefly summarize: I have gone to the View / Headers and Footers menu and entered the desired text for the header and the footer. Then I have gone to the Page Layout button and run into trouble there. If I click on First Page different, I suppress printing of both the header and the footer. I have tried choosing "From this point forward" and then entering header text on the second page rather than the first, but either both header and footer are blank on the first page, or if I unclick the box for First Page Different, then the header displays as well as the footer. I will appreciate any help.

A:Solved: Formatting Headers/Footers in Word 2003

Sounds like what you need is a section break. At the end of the first page, insert a section break - make sure you make it a page section break. This will allow you to have different headers for each section. On page 2 (which is now the first page of section 2), enter your header. On the header and footer toolbar, there is a "link to previous" button. It's selected by default, so you'll have to unselect it. The header might have automatically been put onto the first page; if so, go to page one and delete the header. As long as the "link to previous" button is not enabled, this should delete the header on only the first page, leaving you with the footer on all pages. Let us know if you need clarification on any of the steps since you're not used to using Word. Good luck!

A:Excel 2003 Headers and Footers

Hi JFresh,
Sounds like a margin problem to me. Go to File/Page Setup/Margins and set the top margin to a higher number or the header margin to a lower number. For example, if the header is 0.5 and the top is 1, try changing the top to 1.5. Let us know if that doesn't seem to do the trick.

I'm having a problem with a Word 2k3 document:

I'm trying to make changes to this document such as setting the margin to 2.5" from the top on one page and a 1/2" to 1" on all others.
I make the changes, and everything looks ok until I hit the save button. Upon hitting the button the formatting reverts back to its original state (as if I didn't make any changes).

I've unchecked the 'update links' and the 'update fields' boxes under Tools -> Options -> Print tab but to no avail.

However one thing I think it may be related to is the headers and footers in the document. Just above the beginning of the text on the page (which is centered) there is a grayed out carraige return charcter (the backwards p looking thing). It's greyed out similar to the way field codes are displayed in grey. If I double click on it then the header toolbar appears and I am able to edit the contents of that header or footer. Also when I do double click on it, all of the text that I've typed turns grey. Finally, if I click the close button on the Header toolbar then the backwards p symbol disappears, and my document appears exactly as it should (with the revisions I made).

I apologize if this seems very confusing. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask and I'll try to clarify as best I can.

Thanks for all your help,


A:headers/footers, and wierd formatting

Might you have your document in Outlook?
I have seen many people have a document in Outlook, they make edits and save them, but when they reopen the document they are surprised that none of their edits are there. The obvious reason is that their edits were done to the "temp" copy in the Outlook on-drive storage location, not really their one in the Outlook email.

Just a guess.

Otherwise, you could place a copy of your doc here in the Board, and we could look at it here, to see what you are seeing.

If this can't be done, how else can I accomplish this?


A:dont want headers/footers to print

Go into the header and footer of each section of the document. Hit Ctrl+A, Format-Font, Hidden text.

Of course, you may then need to go to Tools-Options, View tab and choose to view hidden text.

I have a short document (14 pages) written in Word 2000. Starting about the middle of the document, and only for a couple of pages before it reverts back to normal, the header somehow goes from being 1/2-inch high to something like 5 inches high. This of course means the first line of text is in the middle of the page.

If I select the offending header and try to adjust its margin with the vertical ruler, the change won't stick - when I release the mouse button the header immediately reverts to its large size.

What would cause this? And how can I fix it??

A:Office 2007-Word-Footers and Page #'s

I'm not following. Headers and footers don't go away. They are always there even if there's nothing in them. If you insert page number field then it should display. It will also "stay in the document" unless you remove it.

Is your problem perhaps that the page number displays on, say, the first page but not others? If that is the case, you need to go into Page Layout and change the settings for Headers and Footers.

I'm running Word 200 on Vista. I have a book - pages are 6 x 9.

I have a book with many sections. There are no page numbers for the first 6 sections. When I start the odd and even page numbers (they start at page 3), the odd pages are positioned in the footer correctly and increment properly for the rest of the document. But the evens, which are positioned correctly do not increment. They're all page 4. I called Microsoft 's Word 2007 free-for-30-days tech support (they're in India) and the guy spent two hours and couldn't figure it out. BUT I NOTICED AFTERWARDS THE FOLLOWING:

When the odd page numbering begins, THE HEADERS COMPLETELY DISAPPEAR. Not even their "shadows" are there. But I can't get the even headers to disappear. Or the footers to disappear.

1) The reason why I want the headers to go away is that it may make the even page numbers work like the odd page numbers.

2) Or, failing that, if I can get the footers to disappear I can definitely lower the margin, since I will have freed up that space -- and I can enter the page numbers by hand. The page numbers can be no higher than .5 from the bottom. But the closest I can get them now, lowering margins, is about 7/8" (.875).

Can either the headers or the footers be deleted entirely --like you could do in earlier versions of Word?

How are you getting out of the program? (exiting the screen.) This is what I found from Word Perfect 12's Help Menu:

In working with Headers or Footers note that they do not display in Draft Mode. The document must be open in Page or Two Page View.

To View a header or footer: Click view and than click one of the following: (Uncheck Draft Mode if checked)


-Two Page

To Switch the document view, click View and than either page or two page.

To Edit the text in a header or footer: (Must not be in draft mode)

Click Insert/Header and Footer

Enable one of the following options:

Header A
Header B
Footer A
Footer B

Make any changes to the text

Click File, Close

If the document is displayed in Page View or Two Pages View you can also edit the header or footer by clicking anywhere inside the header or footer.

I planned to seek help from TSG about finding an easier way of getting into headers in the MSWord 2007. Word had changed rather drastically from the previous version and I found the new version unnecessarily complicated when it came to dealing with headers.

But before posting, I decided to look at the situation very carefully once more so I could describe the issue accurately. Lo, and behold, I discovered the existence of something called the "Quick Access Toolbar." Now maybe you knew all about that, if so, this post is not for you.

Right-click on an empty place on the top menu bar to the right of the menu items (Home, Insert, Page Layout, etc). When you do that, you will see a menu window appear that provides these options: "Customize Quick Access Toolbar," "Show Quick Access Toolbar Above (or below) the Ribbon," and "Minimize the Ribbon" (The Ribbon being the entire collection of menu icons and subdivisions).

In the Customization Window that appears, you can select items from the extensive list of items in the left column and move them to the "to be included" (my term) column on the right by means of a directional arrow betweem the columns in the middle. You can also remove things you don't want by selecting them in the right column and using the directional arrow between the columns to move them back into the "items from which to select" column on the left.

A:Solved: Discontinue headers in Word

You may be neglecting one extra step. If you choose to have a different header on the first page only, you will need to set up the first page and then the other pages. You may need to go to page two, select Header and Footer and blank out the information for the remaining pages to create a blank header. Then your check in "Different First Page" will use the page one data on the first page only.

There's a good (but old) tutorial here.

At work, when we send out proposal documents (Word 2002 Office XP) we send them out in two different ways- as paper printouts and as pdfs. My boss is very particular about the company branding so when we send out paper versions they must be printed on letter-headed paper. When we send out pdfs we set up headers and footers that look like the letter-headed paper. Unfortunately this means that whenever we create a proposal we end up editing two documents, one with headers and footers, one without. This is time consuming and has led to differences between the versions in the past.

- Ideally, we would just edit the version with the header and footer, and then be able to hide them when printing onto paper- I can't find a button in Word to do this!
- I've tried to persuade the boss to just print the pdfs onto normal paper for the paper versions, bur apparently this isn't good enough
- I've tried inserting an image of the letter-headed paper as a watermark (which could easily be removed for printing to paper) but even I can see the result isn't good enough quality- it also isn't very flexible.

Has anyone got any bright ideas that could help? I've read on these forums about Master Documents but I don't really understand what they are- could they be the answer?
