Yes, headers and footers can convey key information about your document. Yes, headers and footers can be a headache. The new Get control of page numbers, headers, and footers training course on Office.com provides a cure for that.
The intermediate self-paced course for Word 2010 includes video, so that you can see what's going on in real time, and a practice session, so that you can try it yourself on a practice document, not that all-important report that's due in an hour.
By the end of the course, you'll be able to:

Slightly bizarre, but a Word document opened on a iphone can show with an old header and footer form a previous version of the file - we have a document which is updated regularly including the header and footer, but when it is read on an iphone the footer reverts to as it was in the original documant six months ago. Tried using "accept changes" and even the "remove hidden data" tool but the problem remains. Must be something to do with the iphone Word viewer - but how can I completly clean the Word document. We are using Word 2003 on Windows 7 machine and Outlook/exchange to send emails.
I have read everything there is to read about creating a footer. I have watched the videos. I am doing exactly what it says, BUT, the footer still doesn't appear on subsequent pages. What am I doing wrong?
Barrie -- We're looking into it.
bmoscate -- Have you tried this? Double-click in the footer that's on your first page, and then make sure that Different First Page (on the Header & Footer Tools tab) is not selected.
I hope this helps.
Okay, so I need some help! I am writing papers in APA format. I have learned how to properly format the Headers. However, when I insert a header the footer automatically appears. I don't need a footer!!!! When I click on delete footer it doesn't go away. This is causing the bottom of my pages to print out more than 1" from the bottom and my professors are saying something to me! How do I get a header without the footer feature automatically turning on?
The footer feature turns on automatically, but it won't add a footer unless you type content into it (or choose a footer from the gallery). You can double-click the footer area and delete anything if it was added. Then double-click in the body of your document. But I'm also thinking that maybe your body text has extra spacing after it, and that is causing the spacing at the bottom of the page to be wrong. Check you normal style and confirm that the line spacing is 1 (not 1.15) and that there is 0 space after a paragraph.
A friend of mine showed me how to use a Macro in Excel to add specific footer information. I wondered if I could do the same thing with Word. I am very unfamiliar with the terms that are used in a Macro. Here is the Macro info he gave me for Excel:
' Footer2 Macro
For Each ws In Sheets
.LeftFooter = "&Z&F"
.CenterFooter = ""
.RightFooter = "&D" & Chr(10) & "&A"
How do I put this into Word terms for a Macro?? I liked the idea of simply hitting Cntrl-_ (Whatever button I chose) to add this info to a Word document. What are your thoughts?
You can't use exactly the same macro for Word, because some thing will be different. But you can quickly create a macro to use in Word by recording it. For more information, see office.microsoft.com/.../record-or-run-a-macro-HA010099769.aspx.
I have checked my line spacing and format. It is set to 1.0 and I do not have spaces inbetween lines/paragraphs. The paper comes out formatted correctly except the extra space at the bottom due to my "non-existant" footer. This is really driving me crazy as I need to have it formatted perfectly for my professors who seem to be APA gurus. I don't have any text in my footer and even set my footer to start at 0.0 from bottom of page. Do you have any other suggestions?
I only wanttheheader on the first page how do i prevent on the next pages
I am trying to get the header and the pager number on the same page but every time I put the header first and then put the page number the header disappears. I really need help on this because I have trouble with this for every APA paper and I saw a blog on how to do this but I can't find some of the stuff I need to make a custom header.
I am having trouble getting my header to allow a page number that changes with every page. This is standard APA formatting so why does 2010 not offer this? HELP!!!!
It's easier if you decide first what you want in the header and footer (including that page number). That can determine which procedure you use. We walk you through the decision process and the steps here: office.microsoft.com/.../add-or-remove-headers-footers-and-page-numbers-HA010372690.aspx.
Without seeing the actual document, it's hard to determine the problem. Are you using a page number from the gallery? Are you using the PAGE field? For more information on headers and footers, see blogs.office.com/.../header-and-footer-recap.aspx. Or try http://answers.microsoft.com.
any news on cleaning the header/footer information? we are also having this problem when read on iphone/ipad
