    Footer on last page only (Word 97 SR2)

    Hi all. I know this should be easy but I have a mental block.
    I am creating a 4 page, 1 section document and I only want the footer to appear on the last page only. For some reason wherever I place the footer it appears on the bottom of all pages. Anyone know where my problem is?
    Thanks in advance.

    Bill

    Hi Bill:
    Use the following field in a footer:

    {IF {Page} = {Numpages} "{Page}" "" }

    Note that the curly braces are inserted by pressing Ctrl+F9, not by typing. This nested field says to put in the page when the page number = the number of pages (i.e. the last page); otherwise put nothing.
    Cheers,

    Phil. Thanks for that, however where and how do I put this nested code into the footer? When I go to enter the { by using the Ctrl + F9 combination as you suggested, nothing happens. I was using the Insert-Field menu. Thanks heaps.

    Phil hi

    I know this is going back some but I am having a similar problem to that which Bill posted on 19th Nov.

    I have inserted a table in the footer of an invoice that I only want to show on the last page of the invoice whether it is page 1, 2 or 3. I have created the table in the footer that calculates the values from bookmarks in a table in the main document as a sub-total, calculates the GST (sales tax) and sums the both.

    I have inserted the formula you suggested for Bill Northby in the previous posting this only appears to show the last page number where the formula is inserted.

    What am I doing wrong?
    cheers

    Phil,

    did you by chance insert Phil R.'s formula by pasting it ?
    You have to create all brackets (in this example 3 pairs) with Ctrl-F9.

    { If { Page } = { Numpages } "Your Table" ""}

    You can switch between viewing Field Code and Field Result with Alt-F9.
    If you don't see your table in the Header and Footer view after switching to
    Field Result don't worry, it will be there as soon as you switched back to
    Print Layout View.

    I hope this helps you,
    Oana

    Hi Oana:
    Thanks for responding to this. I've been away from the lounge today. It's going to be a busy week. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    If I strain my eyes and look at the horizon, I can see a faint glimmer of weekend.
    You'll see it too, albeit 9 hours later.

    Oana thnaks for that

    I developed the formula using Ctrl-F9. The table shows on all pages, not just the last as expected.

    W/hat do you mean by "Your Table"?

    Cheers

    Re: Footer on last page only (Word 97 SR2)

    Sorry, Phil, I assumed you had checked the "Different first page" option.

    Go to File > Page Setup > Layout and check under Headers and Footers Different first page.
    By "Your Table" I mean whatever it is that you want to put in the footer, i.e. the table with the values from bookmarks and GST calculation.

    Don't forget to switch back to Page Layout or Normal View with Alt-F9.

    Cheers and tell me please how it went,
    Oana

    Thanks Oana

    If I set, Headers and Footers Different first page, I do not get the footer with the table in it on a 1 page invoice.

    How do I specifiy a table in a string?

    I have Word set to use Print Layout as the default as I find I usually need to check formatting as I go.

    cheers

    Re: Footer on last page only (Word 97 SR2)

    I tried to reproduce it in a document of my own, and the Footer appears even if the document is just one page long (the first page is also the last one).
    You can put everything you want in a footer, clips, pictures, files, objects etc. You just insert it between the first pair of quotes. In my document I selected a table and put it in the footer by "Cut and Paste".
    Could you send me your document by private mail , or an example with the bit you want to put in the footer highlighted ?

    Here is an example with a table inserted in the correct place in the formula.

    Type Alt-F9 to see the field codes.
    Replace the table with your table and copy the whole footer to your document.
