Change headers and footers in Word


word2003iconQ. I have this fancy report (resume, essay, etc.), but I would like to change the header and the footer only on the front page.

A. That's fairly easy to do. When you change the header and the footer on one page, it changes it on all the others, so you need to divide the document into sections. Unfortunately, Word allows you to have only Different odd and even or Different first page. You cannot have custom sections (at least Office version 2003 - may be later versions allow you to have those)

To change the header or footer on the first page only, do the following (MS Word 2003):

1. On the File menu, click Page Setup, and then click the Layout tab.
2. Under Headers and Footers, select Different odd and even or Different first page.

To view/activate the header and footer in a section of the document go to View menu and click on Header and Footer.

I know that Open Office allows you to have as many styles as you want, not only first page and odd/even pages.
Not sure if later versions of Word have that (version 2007 and 2010)

my 2 cents
