    Creating different Header footer within same doc. (Word2002)

    Hi,

    I am running Word 2002 on Windows 2002. How do I configure my document to create a first page with one type of header/footer and subsequent pages with different header/footers? I know I have to configure some sort of break but I am not sure what kind.

    Thanks!

    I found my answer, but wanted to post it in case anyone had the same question [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    From the word tool bar select

    Insert > Break >

    Then select the 'Next Page' Section break from the menu that appears.

    You must also remove 'Same as previous' when creating your new header/footer in the new section.

    Hope this helps someone! [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Actually, if you only want a different first page header/footer, there's no need to insert a section break. In File -- Page Layout -- choose the Layout tab, and check the "Different First Page" box under Headers & Footers in the middle of the window.

    You only need to insert section breaks if you want to use more complex header & footer arrangements. Also, be aware that you are not limited to only "Next Page" section breaks. I quite often use Continuous section breaks in my forms, where I don't know where the pages are going to break, so I don't want to force a page break prematurely. Just don't put a continuous section break at the very top of the page, adn keep in mind that the section settings won't take effect until the next page.
