    File Name in Footer

    I am using an add-on product called Worldox that is a document manager. It assigns a DOS file name, but you can also add your own file name (descriptive) and comments. How do I add a footer that automatically shows the file name once it's created?

    Thanks

    Re: File Name in Footer

    Hi, Sherri! You don't mention what version of word. However, if your on 2000, while viewing the footer, click on Insert / Autotext. There are two options. One is Filename and the other Filepath. See if one of those will do it for you.

    Re: File Name in Footer

    <P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1>Edited by Phil Rabichow on 01/01/11 06:33.</FONT></P>This macro will insert the filepath in the footer, TNR size 8, in the right bottom corner. You can add it to a toolbar or menu if you wish.

    Hope this helps.

    Well, I'll be. Not only did I forget to post the macro, but when Karen reminded me, I couldn't find the post. OK, here's the macro:

    Edited a second time because Gary told me how to use pre tags so it looks better:

    <pre>Sub InsPath()
    '
    ' Macro modified 10/12/00 by Phil Rabichow
    '
    ' InsPath Macro
    ' Inserts complete filepath in footer, right justified, 8 pt, TNR
    '
    Dim UserView As Integer
    With ActiveWindow
    UserView = .View.Type
    If UserView <> wdPageView Then
    .View.Type = wdPageView
    End If
    .ActivePane.View.SeekView = wdSeekCurrentPageHeader
    With Selection
    .MoveDown Unit:=wdLine, Count:=1
    .TypeText Text:=vbTab & vbTab
    .Fields.Add Range:=.Range, Type:=wdFieldEmpty, Text:= _
    "FILENAME p ", PreserveFormatting:=True
    .MoveLeft Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=1, Extend:=wdExtend
    With .Font
    .Name = "Times New Roman"
    .Size = 8
    .Bold = False
    End With
    End With
    .ActivePane.View.SeekView = wdSeekMainDocument
    .View.Type = UserView
    End With
    End Sub</pre>

    Re: File Name in Footer

    Word 97 also has these Autotext as standard.

    For a fully automatic insertion into a new document, consider defining a dedicated template (*). Then either use afore mentioned autotext or use Insert|Field where can choose not only "Filename with the /p option" but lots of other document information related functions.

    (*) You could take the normal.dot for this, but then it is for all new documents. In this case make and keep regular backups, the normal.dot gets corrupted too easily.

    Re: File Name in Footer

    Sherri,

    In the original letter template, create the footer and insert the filename (or path and filename) into the footer. This will ensure that your footer appears on all letters.

    You might also consider this option for all other document templates.

    If you require assistance, your Worldox representative should be able to help you - they may be able to program Worldox to do this for you!! - [img]/w3timages/icons/clever.gif[/img] - they are, after all, the professionals.


    Hope this helps.
