Hello Wizz kids,

I have created some word templates. The first page has a header and a footer. I would like further pages to be either totally blank or with only the footer.

I cant seem to work this out. Can anyone help me out?

Regards

Constantine

Hi Constantine,

The easiest way that I can find to do this is to create "Sections" in your Template/Document. By using Sections you can create different Headers or Footers for each Section.

Check this link out, you should get the general idea.

Another way you can restrict a header or footer to the first page only is as follows:

Click on File then Page Setup and then click on the Page Layout tab.

The second section down on that tab says Headers and Footers. Click on the little box by First Page Only to put a check mark there. Now, your first page header will appear only on the first page. NOTE: If you have several sections in your paper, this will cause the first page header or footer to appear on the first page of every section unless you unlink the headers or footers. In order to unlink them, Click on View then Header and Footer. On the tool bar that pops up, click on the little icon third from the left on the bottom. I have it boxed in reddish purple in the picture below.

That way, you can have a separate header or footer for the first page of every section and yet other headers for pages 2-section end for each section. You will also have to unlink the headers and footers for the pages following each section's first page if you want a different header or footer from the 2+ pages in the previous sections.

Glad I could help. I remember actually tearing some of my hair out dealing with header issues when I was working papers for grad. school. Figured I'd save you the bald patches :thumbsup: and share what I learned.

Hello again Orange Blossum,
I appreciate you concern about my hair. But if you look at my picture there under my name, you will notice that any change to my appearance could only be for the better.

Once again, thanks for the tips. Happy Thanksgiving:)
