Automatic Footers in WORD

  • Follow


Hello

Is it possible to set the footer in Word so that it appears automatically on 
each new document without having to add it manually?

Thank you, Jean

Here below are two methids of doing what you want:
1. Create a template that has what you want built-in. See 
http://word.mvps.org/faqs/customization/CreateATemplatePart1.htm for help on 
templates.
2. Create an autotext entry of the footer. For more on AutoText, see 
http://word.mvps.org/faqs/customization/AutoText.htm and 
http://gregmaxey.mvps.org/Word2007_Building_Blocks_&_AutoText.htm.

Hope this helps
DeanH

Hi Jean,

Yes. Simply modify the template upon which the documents are based.

Thank you DeanH and Macropod.
The business i work for needs to ensure that all documents can be marked 
either with 'internal', 'confidential', 'public' etc for PCI-DSS.

From what you have both said, would we as a business be able to create 
templates that then could be rolled out across our business so that employees 
would be able to choose which one most suited the purpose? Could this be done 
via SMS to you think?
Thanks for your help. I am new to all of this.

Hi Jean,

You want to distribute Word documents/templates via SMS? Somehow, I don't think that'll work.

Thanks Macropod
We need to create templates that then need to be distributed to 1000's of 
employees, wasnt too sure if this could be done by SMS but from your thoughts 
it doesnt sound like it.

Thank you, Jean
