Inserting Dates and Page Numbers in Headers and Footers

Open the View menu and choose Header and Footer.

Press Tab twice to move to the right edge of the header area, and click the Insert Date button.

Word inserts the current date. (To insert the current time, click the Insert Time button to the right of the Insert Date button.)

Click the Switch Between Header and Footer button to move to the footer area.

INTRODUCTION

The Header and Footer toolbar makes it easy to insert commonly used blocks of text into a header or footer, as well as fields for the date, the page number, the time, and so on. Here, you take a quick tour of some of the options available on the toolbar. Feel free to experiment on your own.


Click the Insert AutoText button, and then choose one of the AutoText entries you'd like to see.

Word inserts the AutoText entry in the footer. Select and delete this entry. Try a few other AutoText entries, and delete the last one.

Press the Tab key, type Page, and then press the Spacebar.

Click the Insert Page Number button, and then click Close in the Header and Footer toolbar.
