Chapter 5. Formatting a Document with Word > Adding Headers and Footers

Adding Headers and Footers

Most books, including this one, use headers and footers to help you keep track of where you are. A header is text printed in the top margin of every page within a document. Footer text is printed in the bottom margin. Commonly used headers and footers contain your name, the document title, the filename, the print date, and page numbers. If you divide your document into sections, you can create different headers and footers for each section.

Create and Edit Headers and Footers

Click the View menu, and then click Header And Footer.

If necessary, click the Switch Between Header And Footer button on the Header And Footer toolbar to display the footer text area.

Click the header or footer box, and then type the text you want.

To insert common phrases, click the Insert AutoText button on the Header And Footer toolbar, and then click the text you want.

Edit and format header or footer text as usual.

When you're done, click the Close button on the Header And Footer toolbar.
