I have a large number of Word files and would like to add a footer or header to each showing the filename. I know how to do it by opening each file one at a time but this will be quite time consuming and I was wondering if there was a way to do a batch of files at once? Any suggestions would be much appreciated as there is quite a large number of files I need to change.Thanks.

I can't think of a way of doing this to previously saved files but if you edit the normal.dot file to have this on then it will do this for all new documents.

The only other way would be to use a VB script to add it on opening of a file. This would mean coding it and then opening every file. The only advantage to this is hat you would not need to do manually for every file.

Mmm, looks like I need to find another way to approach the problem since I need to add it to saved files and am not up to writing a script. Oh well thanks anyway,Gail.
