    chapter name in footer

    I have word 2010. I am working on a new book and have about 250 pages with 96 chapters.
    The chapter name is always the top of a page.
    The chapter name is always styled with TimesNewRoman size: 17
    (Each chapter is already bookmarked-if that helps any)

    There is nothing else in the book with that style.

    I would like the chapter name to appear in the footer along with the page number.


    Thank you for any help
    Michael

    Go to the footer and position where you would like the chapter name to appear.
    Under the insert tab select the Quick Parts option then select Field.
    Under field names (make sure categories is ALL) select the Ref option. Then select the Bookmark name you have assigned to the Chapter you would like to be displayed in this sections footer. Then click okay.

    You should see something like {REF chapter1} if you see it appear like this press the f9 key while holding down the alt key to toggle the field code. You should see the chapter name if you have bookmarked it correctly.

    After the } add a space and then go to the insert menu and select Page number.


    Repeat the above steps for each section of your document.

    The suggestions posted in response to this question are both very labour intensive - although both would work. There is a much easier way.

    The way I would do this is by using a styleref field in the footer that points to the last used occurrence of a style. If the style for Chapter headings is "Heading 1" then the styleref field would look like {StyleRef "Heading 1"}

    Here are a couple of past threads that give more information
