    Word 2003 Template - different headers and footers

    Hi - I'm stuck and welcome any help with open arms!!

    I need to create a template which may be one or more pages when finished. One the first page I need to insert a footer if the document is only one page in length. If the document is two pages in length, then I need no footer on the first page, but a footer on the second page. If the document is three pages long then I need no footer on first and second, but the footer on the last page- sounds simply enough - but I just can't get it..... Please help.....

    I'm no expert, but maybe I can get you started. try this { If {PAGE} = {NUMPAGES} "Your footer here" }. Insert the field braces by pressing Ctrl+F9.

    Pam's response is correct. Like her, I am assuming that what you want is your footer on the last page of your document.
    See How to control the page numbering in a Word document.
    To make the field you can type the text that is to go in the field and select it, then press Ctrl-F9. Or press Ctrl-F9 to create a pair of field braces and type the text between them.
