MS Word Custom Templates: Headers, Footers Not Appearing

Q: MS Word Custom Templates: Headers, Footers Not Appearing


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.

Welcome to the forum. If you post the Word document as an attachment we can better look at it. I think you cannot post attachments until your 7th post or so though. If you mail me the document and let me know on the forum, then I will post it up here for you. Also if you feel uncomfortable posting the document, just post the code instead.

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.

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 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!

I have a one year old Toshiba Touch Screen, running Windows 7 and Microsoft Office Pro 2003. I am protected by AVG Premium Security: anti virus, link scanner, email protection, firewall, identity alert/protection.
Suddenly all the custom Word templates that I have created have become corrupted with the date being displayed as { DATE \@ "dddd, dd MMMM yyyy" }. Even when I attempt to insert a date in a new, blank (non custom created) document, it is displayed similarly.
The email address area displays an historic email address that is no longer in existence and is prefaced { HYPERKLINK mailto: ...............}
I have no idea why this corruption has occurred and wonder whether I should reinstall the Office Pro 2003 software; might this solve the problem?
In any event, I would like to know why such a corruption should suddenly occur and what might have caused it - might it happen again? I have never experienced this type of error in almost a quarter of a century using stand alone computers.

I would add that I created this question in a Word document and when I cut and pasted it into this message, the date and email addresses were correctly formatted, although I had typed them in their 'program style form' as above, so I am even more confused and bemused!

I shall be really grateful for any help.

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,

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.

IN WORD XP 2003, I am creating a custom template (.dot) for a client. WORD typically hides templates away in a hidden drive to protect them from alterations. And, when you open a template, the WORD default is to bring them up as a document (.doc) with all the embedded formatting and boilerplate text from which a user to can create a unique document.

With some finagling, on my own computer I have found that I can save a template in a file of my own creation where I can find it again. If I am very careful to open the document as a template, I can then make edits to the template itself.

I want transfer the final template to my client electronically (via email).

QUESTION: Can you provide step-by-step instructions for 1) how and where the client should save the template, so it is not filed away in the default hidden drive; and 2) how the client can give designated employees access to update and edit the template?

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.

My case is I have my installed software classified in folders by type of functionality. The thing is most software comes with icons with maximum resolution of 48px so I'd want to create a new template for this situation and apply it recursively to my software folder. COmmon sense tells this should be possible but Microsoft isn't know precisely for applying it so I wonder if this is even possible.

I recently responded to an email from a known contact, changing the title and deleting the message to start a new topic. I had forgotten that this email carried an Alphadex-Attachment-Warning saying:- The original e-mail attachment "Toastmaster Spreadsheet.xls.lnk.xls" is on the list of unacceptable attachments for this site and has been replaced by this warning message. I contacted Alphadex immediately by email but received no response - and in the meantime forgot I had received this warning!

I have been receiving this periodically updated spreadsheet for several years with an .xls suffix. On 20.11.2012, the spreadsheet first appeared with the suffix .xls.lnk.xls, which I have to admit I didn't notice. I was able to open it without problem twelve times between that date and the warning message which arrived on 16.5.2013.

Since using this email to start a new topic with my contact, the formatting of my filed word processing documents and custom templates have been corrupted; additionally, inserting the date from the software is displayed:{DATE\@"dd MMMMyyyy"} - although when I copied that to this message it appeared formatted in date form.

This formatting corruption is displayed on all filed documents, newly created templates and on documents filed on a USB. I am protected by AVG Premium Security 2012 and have run a computer scan which shows no virus infection.

A:Corrupted docs and custom templates since xls.lnk.xls document

I have now discovered that the corruption was not caused by the Excel document attachment, but by a Word document. I attempted to open this attachment following my initial post on this website and was warned that opening the document 'caused a serious error' last time it was opened, so it is patently this that has corrupted my word processing documents.

Apart from corruption of the graphics (a simple coloured rectangle with rounded corners encircling the text area) and the corrupted date format, our email address in the header of all documents and templates is shown as a hyperlink, i.e. {HYPERLINK mailto:.....} and contains an old email address.

I am in serious trouble here as all my documents and templates are corrupted in this way and it will be a massive amount of work to amend them all if I am unable to find a software solution via the good offices of one of you Tech Support Guys. I really hope someone sees this and can help.

I work for a big company and i had to redesign alot of templates. Sorry.

In regards to changing the numbering, you now right click on one of the actual numbers within the document and you can change the numbering from there.

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)

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

O/S: Windows NT 4.0 SP 5-6
Application: Word 97
Short Description: A template that we have created appears to have a bug, which causes the entire PC to not respond for long periods.

We have a group of people accessing a customized template via a Novell (TCP/IP) LAN. I have created a document which I then saved as a template (.dot), about 6 months ago. When this template was placed into a group directory and accessed, it was found that after a new document, which was created from the template, was used it would start to thrash the CPU. I have watched several times when only a document (which was spawned from the template) has 90-100 % utilization; even when only Word 97 is open.

This problem is only experienced by the people who use this template, and when an effected document is taken to other PCs, it will once again (after a while) start hogging the CPU, even when there is no activity from the user.

I have recreated the document template several times but this problem still occurs.

The problem is causing major problems as the group of users who use the template, it causes the PC to be non-responsive for 5 - 20 minutes at a time.

I you would like to have a look at the template, I will email it you on demand.

I have created some templates for Word 97 and have just discovered that if a user has created an Auto Correct entry for a word, when that word is typed for the second time in the same form field, the word is deleted. It doesn't happen with every word in the Auto Correct list, though, just certain ones, eg, 'Mrs' and 'Mr' disappear, 'about' doesn't. Has anyone else experienced this, or can anyone suggest a solution?

Elaine, you've explained more than most, but could you give me an exact example? For instance, you say "when it's entered more than once..."; does that mean they're typing Mrs. in one spot in that form field, more text follows, and then they type it again and it removes itself? Would you be willing to email one of the templates that this occurs on along with one of the autotext entries that goofs this up?

I have recently been having a problem with my Word templates that I haven't had in the last two years we have been using them.

Normally, when you open a template, you actually open a new document based off of the template. However, I have a system that, when you double click on the template, instead of creating a blank document, it actually goes into the template itself. Any idea how to fix this or what caused it?

(this is for WinXP and Office 2000).
it looks like the default action for a .dot is set to 'Open' rather than 'New'.

to check this, instead of double clicking the template file name, right click on it and see which option is highlighted, I suspect your's is 'Open'.

To correct this, assuming you are in a browser window, click Tools , then Folder Options, then 'File Types' tab, scroll down to DOT, highlight it and press 'Advanced', highlight 'New' and press 'Default'.

Hi this is my first post and i have a question regarding templates in word. Let me give you you some background first, my friend runs a businness and many years ago someone set up a report system on word that involved loading the template and a series of windows would pop up requesting information i.e. name, address and some are radio buttons to select options these are then merged into the template. The program this is running on is a very early version of Winword and due to compatibilty issues he would like to use a newer version of Word. All i would like to know is if this is possible and to point me in the right direction. I know this could be done using Access and merging but i was hoping there would be another solution that would just involve using Word. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

Welcome to the forums. Without looking at the actual files, I am guessing they are using Fill-In fields and other form items. Could you e-mail the files to me so I can take a look at them? You can e-mail me by clicking on my name and selecting the option to e-mail me.

Hi, I am trying to create a template in Word (2002) with customized menus that contain auto text. For some reason, when I send my template to others, they don't get the customized menus. I have been saving everything to my desktop.

I've gotten it to work once. I wrote down all my steps and followed them exactly but can't get it to work again.

Can you help?

Hey guys, im new here!

I thought i'd ask a question thats been bugging me...

in Microsoft Word, i know you can create templates, i've created a basic one.

I want to make a letterhead as a template, but actually functions so that members of staff, at my company, can simply select and fill in the gaps, like the templates when creating a CV/Resume on Word.
My firm is a solicitors firm, so we need something that would actually benefit.

I've thought of using MACROS, i tried them and they failed.

The things im struggling on...

i want the last page to say "yours sincerly..." so i tried putting this into the footer, so its automatic so it saves time, but this enters it to every page.

Is there a way i can enter the signature on only the last page, but as a template?

I want the signature to be displayed only on the last page. If i type a letter which currently has 1 page, i want the signature to stay on the end, but if i shift to an extra page making the letter 2 pages now, i want the signature to automatically be displayed and moved to the bottom.

Also, i saw on the macro, you can make a section in capitals only.
I think this worked, but then when i saved as a template and then opened it, it wasn't in capitals, i could shift in and out of upper and lowercase.
Is there a way i can force capitals onto a certain section, such as "Ref: JHHDF525"?
incase staff enter "jhhdf525" instead?

I hope this can be done and isnt too much w... Read more
