    Footer and Page number (2003)

    I set my bottom margin to about 4 inches. Hence my text ends at that point. I would like to have the page number right under the text. But when I insert page numbers, it puts them into a footter at the bottom of the page. I want the page numbes to be right under where the text stops. (4 inches up) This would be on every page.

    How do I move the footer up, or how would I put page number right under the point where the text stops.

    Re: Footer and Page number (2003)

    I'm still using Word 2000, but I assume (hopefully) that this hasn't changed.

    1. Go into page setup.../margin tab & set the bottom margin for 4" & the footer for 4".
    2. Put the page number in the footer using the Header & Footer toolbar (don't use Insert/Page numbers, as this uses a text box which affects spacing).

    See attached.

    Thanks Phil,
    You know, I saw the setting for the "header' and 'footer' where it said 'From edge'. In my mind I thought it meant from the edge of the Left margin. Why? I don't know........ Hence I did not even try it..... I looked at your attachment page set up and saw where you made the adjustment and said....."OH, from the bottom edge!" <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39>

    Anyway, all is well.
    Thanks again
    Michael
