    Footers in a Template (XP)

    I've set up some templates which are our headed notepaper, nothing overly complex. However, the footer gets replicated on each new page and i want it to only be on the first page and then each of the new pages 2 onwards to have no footer at all.

    You can get around it by inserting page breaks if you've gone onto a second page, then clicking on the footer, stop it being linked and delete it. This however seems an overly complex way around it, and its a hassle teaching everyone how to use it properly.

    I've tried going into the page setup and having the first page different, but that then moves the footer off the first page all together and sticks it on the bottom of the second, which is exactly the opposite of what i want.

    So what i'm after is a quick and simple way to keep the footer there on the first page and not the second so i can save the template and everyone else can use it super simply.

    Any help much appreciated

    You can use an IF field and a PAGE field to control this, by using the syntax
    <code>{ IF { PAGE } = 1 "Your footer goes here" "" }</code>
    Use Control-F9 to insert the curly braces { }
    Replace the text "Your footer goes here" with your actual footer.

    Using different first page header/footer is what you want. However, don't create the footer until after you've done this. Then it will stay on the first page & the rest will be blank. i.e. it's the order in which you take the steps. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
