    automatic footer in Word (Word 2000, SR-1)

    I would like to create an automatic footer that will show the file name and path for each Word document. Is this possible? Or do I just have to do it individually?
    Thanks,
    Nancy

    Use the field { FILENAME p }

    You can do this either by typing Control-F9 to create the { } and then typing the text yourself or from
    Insert > Field > Document Information > Filename > Options > Field Specific Switches > Add to Field > OK > OK

    Thanks for getting me started. I actually just created a new blank document with footer template, which I can open and use as needed. I just clicked on view header and footer, switched to the footer, then included an Insert Auto Text for the file and path name. This seems to be the easiest way for me.

    Nancy,

    if you want it to appear on all the documents you create, you can open the Normal.DOT template and put the field code in it. That way, whenever you create a blank document, the field is already there.
