    Excel Footer Font Size (2000)

    Is it possible to set/reset the font of a footer in Excel? Apparently the default font is set to Arial 10, and I would like to switch it to 8-pitch.

    I have the following macro for my footers, and the center footer and right footer behave nicely at 8-pitch. I can't seem to get the left footer to automatically set to 8-pitch. What am I missing?

    ActiveSheet.PageSetup.LeftFooter = ActiveWorkbook.FullName
    ActiveSheet.PageSetup.CenterFooter = "&8Page &P of &N"
    ActiveSheet.PageSetup.RightFooter = "&8Run Date: &D &T"

    Hi,
    Try:
    ActiveSheet.PageSetup.LeftFooter = "&8" & ActiveWorkbook.FullName
    Hope that helps.

    It worked!!! (I knew I was missing a little something in the syntax and I guess it was the second &.)

    Many, many thanks... <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23>
