      Header and footer basics The lesson includes a list of suggested tasks and a set of test questions.
    • 3. Overview: Little signposts Header and footer basics Headers and footers are those little identifiers that run across the top and bottom of your document, providing important background information about it. They include such things as page numbers, dates, book or chapter titles, and author name. These small signposts improve the usability of your document, and they make it look professional. In this course, you’ll see how to add and work with headers and footers

      Header and footer basics
    • 5. Lesson Add page numbers, date, and more
    • 6. Add page numbers, date, and more Header and footer basics Think of page formatting in a book. The book title is at the top of one page, the chapter title is at the top of the facing page, and the page number is at the bottom. These textual details are headers and footers , and they have a similar application in Word documents. Most commonly, you want page numbers throughout a document, but there are all sorts of other types of information you can include — there’s no prescription.
    • 7. The header and footer workspace Header and footer basics Before we go into specifics, here’s a word about the header and footer workspace . This workspace includes areas at the top and bottom of a document page that are specifically for header and footer content. After you insert a header or footer, the areas become active and editable, and they’re marked with a dashed line, as the picture shows.
    • 8. The header and footer workspace Header and footer basics The main point is that header and footer content inhabits a layer of the document that is separate from the main body, and behaves differently from your document’s main content. When you add one header or footer, such as a page number or date, it appears on every page. In the case of page numbers, they’re programmed to be consecutive and to update themselves automatically when the number of pages changes.
    • 9. Insert page numbers Header and footer basics Page numbers are the most common type of header or footer. They’re such a necessary element in documents that they get their own button and gallery of choices. On the Insert tab, in the Header & Footer group, click Page Number . Choose where you want the numbers on the page, at the top or on the bottom, for example. To add page numbers:
    • 10. Insert page numbers Header and footer basics Page numbers are the most common type of header or footer. They’re such a necessary element in documents that they get their own button and gallery of choices. Then choose a page number style from a gallery of possibilities. To add page numbers:
    • 11. Edit the page numbers
      • [Author: .swf gets inserted here; delete this placeholder before inserting .swf file.]
      Header and footer basics When you insert page numbers or other headers and footers, Word opens the header and footer workspace, enabling you to make formatting changes or add text of your own. For example, select the page number and use the Mini toolbar to change the font size. Various commands in Header & Footer Tools help you do other things too, as the animation shows. Animation: Right-click, and click Play .
    • 12. Edit the page numbers Header and footer basics When you insert page numbers or other headers and footers, Word opens the header and footer workspace. This enables you to make formatting changes or add text of your own. For example, select the page number and use the Mini toolbar to change the font size.
    • 13. Other headers and footers
      • [Author: .swf gets inserted here; delete this placeholder before inserting .swf file.]
      Header and footer basics Page numbers are one type of header or footer. Now see what else is available by looking at the Header and Footer galleries. On the Insert tab, click Header or Footer next to the Page Number button, and choose what you want. As the animation shows, you can select header and footer styles that match, such as the Alphabet style. Animation: Right-click, and click Play .
    • 14. Other headers and footers Header and footer basics Page numbers are one type of header or footer. Now see what else is available by looking at the Header and Footer galleries. On the Insert tab, click Header or Footer next to the Page Number button, and choose what you want.
    • 15. Add the current date Header and footer basics Some of the headers and footers available in the galleries include a special text area for the date. Click in the header or footer where you want the date to go. If there’s text there already that you don’t want, select it. But you can also separately add the current date and time to a header or footer:
    • 16. Add the current date Header and footer basics Some of the headers and footers available in the galleries include a special text area for the date. In the Insert group, click Date & Time . Choose a format. You can have just the date, just the time, or both. Select the Update automatically check box.
    • 17. Add the current date Header and footer basics You can also update while the file is open, and set Word options to update before printing. The Date & Time feature has this updating capacity because it is a field . A field has functionality built into it that makes it perform certain actions.
    • 18. Add the document path and file name Header and footer basics Another common need in headers or footers is to include the document’s file name and the path to its location. To insert this information, you once again use fields. Don’t worry, no special training in fields is required.
    • 19. Add the document path and file name Header and footer basics First, position the cursor where you want the file name and path to go. In the Insert group, click Quick Parts , and click Field . In the Field dialog box, under Field names , click FileName (you may have to scroll). Click the Add path to filename check box to select that option. Then follow these simple steps.
    • 20. Remove a header or footer Header and footer basics You might inherit a document and find you need to remove header or footer content. For example, say that the footer information, such as a document path and file name, is no longer current or desired. In the Header & Footer group, click Footer .
    • 21. Remove a header or footer Header and footer basics You might inherit a document and find you need to remove header or footer content. At the bottom of the Footer gallery, click Remove Footer . That wipes the footer clean.
