    Footer on 2-column page (2000)

    How do you make the footer different for each page when it is a 2-column set-up?

    Re: Footer on 2-column page (2000)

    If it's an odd/even footer, then you would use the odd/even feature under Page Setup. Are you hoping to get a footer for each column? If that's it, you might try a table, but I can't imagine how the page numbering would work.

    If you could post a document with specifics, I'd be happy to look at it.

    Thank you for your response. It's not actually an odd/even footer. It is a different footer for EACH page. Anyhow, my friend (it was her question) has decided that the best solution (since it is different for each page) to put a text box on each page. But thank you very much for such a quick response.

    Depending on how many pages, you could use a section break for each page and then you would have a new footer for each page. You would have to make sure Different First Page is UNchecked.

    SJ Miller has the solution, but I would go back and seriously question why you would want to.

    I've created many manuals for organisations - many of these originally had different footers/headers for each page, but this really makes the document (especially if it is long) hard to handle. It means you can't use Word's automatic pagination facility - a fairly basic 'though major benefit of using a word processor.

    I have never had anyone who insisted on sticking with different header/footer per page once they understood the reasons against. You may just have to think laterally about how the document is laid out so that people can easily use it.

    What is it that you want to be different on each page? This can often be accomplished with dynamic content (like the page number) in a single footer.

    I can think of two choices at this late hour:

    1. Make each page a separate section.

    2. Depending on the content desired in the footer, you might be able to use fields to change the content.
