    Footnote (Word2000)

    Having inserted a footnote on a letterhead, when the letter now extends over 2 pages the footnote appears on the second page. How am I able to have the footnote, which is the company address ,only appear on page 1 of a 2 or more page document.
    Thanks

    Under File, Page Setup, set it to "Different First Page"

    Thanks, but now the footnote disappears from page 1 and appears twice on page 2. Just to be sure that I made myself clear, I want the address to be on page 1 of a letter but not on page 2

    I'm assuming you are talking about a footer. Copy the footer from the 2nd page, go back to the first page footer, paste it in there then delete it from the 2nd page footer.

    Really appreciate your help, but there must be a way of only having a footer on page 1 and not on the pages that follow page 1. Whilst I'm sure what you say will work does this mean that I would have to do this every time I write a letter that contains more than one page

    You could create a template with set up as different first page with company info in footer on page one only. When letter needs to expand to 2 pages, footer only shows up on first page.

    By creating the template, you will only need to create it once and it will be available for use everytime after that.

    Where's clippy when you need him? All letters need to have the option for a different first page header and footer.
