    Headers/Footers disappear (XP SP-1)

    We've just encountered a document sent to us from another firm using Word 2000, in which there are tracked changes. There are page numbers in the footers, and text in the headers. I can see and work with the H/F in Original, Original Showing Markup, and Final Showing Markup. The text in the H/F is original text - not additions or deletions. Whether in Normal or Print Layout View, when the Display for Review is set to Final, I cannot see the H/F nor can I "get into" the H/F. I can choose View, Header and Footer, and the insertion point does not move, the Header pane does not open.

    ALSO, when Tools, Options, Track Changes is set to Use Balloons in Print and Web Layout, and the Display for Review is set Final OR Final Showing Markup, I cannot see, get into, or work with the Headers/Footers.

    Any ideas as to why this might be happening?

    Thanks in advance!

    Well, my first thought was that the header and footer contents were deleted. But even if that were the case, you should be able to open those panes and see "nothing" there...

    Does this document have any protection applied to it?

    If you copy and paste all but the last paragraph into a new document, does it behave any differently?

    No protection applied to the document.

    How do I paste so that all the tracked changes are included?

    I don't think you can. Pasting will automatically "Accept" all changes. It's the same as "Final," so I thought... well, maybe it's not that useful.
