    headers and footers ('97)

    How do I make a header/footer refer to a cell?
    (So that I can change the text in that cell and the header/footer will change accordingly)

    Thanks, I'll try it.
    What about linking a cell to a text box?

    If you have a text box on a worksheet, you can make it display the contents of a cell, say A1:
    - Select the text box.
    - Click in the formula bar.
    - Type =A1 and press Enter.

    But, you can't put a text box in a header or footer.

    Correct. I interpreted it as a more or less independent follow-up question, referring to text boxes in general, but I may be mistaken...
