    Mossing Footer (Word 2000)

    Don't know what I have done, but I'm missing the footer in my document. Somehow I have deleted the footer but now I can't get it back. Header is fine but when I switch between header & footer there is no dotted line showing where the footer should be. Problem started when I wanted to start page numbering with "1" on the second page.

    Re: Mossing Footer (Word 2000)

    Try the following:

    - Open the document.
    - Save it as an RTF file (.rtf).
    - Close the .rtf file, then reopen it.
    - Save it as a Word document (.doc)
    - Close the new document, then reopen it.

    Post back if this doesn't help.

    Thanks Hans, that worked fine. Funny how that happened. So now is there an easy way to put page numbers beginning with "1" on the second page? That's what I was trying to do when the footer went on vacation.

    Select Insert | Page Numbers...
    Click Format...
    Specify that page numbering should start with 0.
    Click OK.
    Clear the check box "Show number on first page".
    If you already have a page number in the footer, click Close, otherwise click OK.
