MS word-header footer problem cannot set

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -


I am having some tough time dealing with header and footer in ms office word 2007.

I set the header and footer to a page and set the time and page number and date format. But and I proceed to the next page the date number, and the page remains the same and I do not know what else to do.

I need someone to tell a way to fix it. Please someone kindly help me.

Frank Marlow.

Differentiating the Header and footer or page number is an essential element working in the word field. If you select one kind of header or footer, then the whole document would be same header or footer. But this can be fixed in the following way. Just follow my instructions and your problem will be solved.

So you want to set a different header / footer or page number for next page/pages.

It is not difficult. Just go to the page "set up" options.

For word 2003 [scroll to File tab and select page setup]

For word 2007 & 2010 [click "Page Layout" tab and select page set up]

Page Layout Setup

In the page setup window click the "layout" tab and check the box "Different first page"

You can also select under section select "new page" to go for more or other options as you like.

Setup for New Page

Hope this helps you.
