                  WORD 2003 - HEADERS AND FOOTERS
A header or footer is text or graphics such as a page number, the date, a company logo,

    the one shown below) at the top of each page of the document and a text box
    labeled Footer at the bottom of each page.




    The Header and Footer toolbar buttons:

2. To Insert Text in a Header or Footer:

    Note: When entering text in a header or footer, it is automatically left aligned. To
    center text, press Tab and type your text. To right align text, press Tab twice.

    In the header text box, type Your Name at the left margin.

    Press Tab to move to the center and Tab again to move to the right margin.
    Type Your Department here. Your header should look like this:




    Press the Switch between header and footer button          on the Header /Footer
    toolbar. Your cursor should now be in the Footer text box.

3. Using the Insert AutoText feature:

    The Insert AutoText button automatically inserts the selected text, such as the
    filename and path of a document or Page X of Y, which displays the page number
    and the total number of pages in a document.

    At the left margin, insert the current date by clicking on the Insert Date button
    on the Header/Footer toolbar.

    Press Tab to move to the center. Using the Insert AutoText button,
    choose Filename. Notice the other options in this menu. For example: Page X of Y,
    Created by, and Filename and Path.

    Press Tab to move to the right margin. Insert the page number using the Insert
    Page Number button.

     Your footer should now look similar to this:




    The grayed areas of the text indicate that it is AutoText and will update automatically
    as needed.

4. Formatting Page Numbers and Text:

    Text in a header or footer can be formatted in the same way as any other text in a
    Word document.

    Select all of the text in the footer. Change the font size to 10.

    To do so, click on Format on the Menu bar and choose Font. Change the font, size,
    style, etc. OR: You can use the drop down boxes on the formatting toolbar.


    Now select the filename. Change the font to Times New Roman and Bold.

    You can also change the format of the page numbers in the header or footer.
    Highlight the page number and click on the Format Page Number button.



                                                    The Page Number Format box allows you
                                                    to change the number format, include
                                                    chapter numbers, and change the page
                                                    numbering.

                                                    Change the number format
                                                    to Roman Numerals.


                                                    Click OK.




    Your footer should now look like this:




                     5. Exiting the Header/Footer edit area:

                     Now that you have created a header and footer, click Close on the
                     Header/Footer toolbar to return to the document.

                     If you switch your view to Print Layout View (Click View on the
                     menu toolbar and choose Print Layout), you will see the header
                     and footer as light gray text at the top and bottom of the page.

                                                        Footer to the first page:
                                                        This feature is useful if you want to
                                                        change or delete a header or footer on
                                                        the first page.

                                                        From the View menu, click Header
                                                        and Footer.

                                                        On the Header and Footer toolbar,
                                                        click the Page Setup button.

                                                        Click the Layout tab.

                                                        Select the Different first page check
                                                        box, and then click OK.

                                                        Notice that the header and footer do
                                                        not appear on the first page.

                                                 To omit a header or footer from the
                                                 first page, leave the header and footer
                                                 areas blank, as we will for this
    document. If you would like a header and/or footer on the first page, enter one as
    usual in the Page One header and footer text boxes.

    Click on the Show Next button        to show the header for page two. Notice that
    the original header appears on page two, but page one was blank.

   This feature is especially useful for a document that will be printed back to back and
   bound in a book or binder.

    On the Header/Footer toolbar, click the Page Setup button.

    Click the Layout tab.

    Select the Different odd and even check box,                                          and then
    click OK.

    Word automatically positions you in the header of page two. The original header
    and footer will be on the odd numbers as it was originally entered on page one, an




    odd page.

    Type Your Department at the left margin (ex: Training Services).

    Your header for the even pages should look like this:

    Now create a footer for the even pages. Click on the Switch Between Header and
    Footer button     on the Header /Footer toolbar.

    At the left margin, type Page with a space after it and click on the Insert Page
    Number button           on the Header/Footer toolbar.

    Tab once to get to the center of the footer. Type Your Name here.

    Tab again to position your cursor at the right margin. Click on the Insert Date
    button on the Header/Footer toolbar.

    The footer for even pages should now look similar to this:




    To move to the header or footer on the next odd-numbered page, click on the
    Show Next button         on the Header/Footer toolbar. The header and footer we
    created previously will appear on all of the odd numbered pages.

3. Adjusting the vertical position of a header or footer

    You can also adjust the vertical position of a header or footer. To do this:

    On the Header/Footer toolbar, click the Page Setup.

    The page setup dialog box will appear.

                                                                      iCIT Helpdesk and Training Services




                                                Click on the Layout tab.

                                                In the Header box, enter .75 as the distance
                                                you want from the top edge of the page to
                                                the top of the header.

                                                In the Footer box, enter .75 as the distance
                                                you want from the bottom edge of the page
                                                to the bottom of the footer.

                                                Click OK.

                                                   Notice now, that your header text boxes
                                                become smaller and your footer text boxes
                                                become larger. The first line of the header
                                                and footer is now positioned .75 inches from
                                                the top and bottom of the pages.

                                                 Your header text box for page three (and all
                                                odd numbered pages) should look like
                                                 this:




    Click Close on the Header/Footer toolbar to return to the document.

    Chose File from the menu bar and Print Preview to see the headers and footers
    you have created and how they will appear on a printout of the document.

    The following three pages are the first three pages of the practice document. This
    should match what you see in Print Preview.

    Click Close to exit Print Preview.
