Creating Separate Headers and Footer in Words

There might come a time in your life when you are creating a word document that requires you to have separate headers for different chapters or categories.

It took me the weekend to understand the help file built in on Microsoft Words to do it but finally I did it. That is persistence for you.

Well, first and foremost, you will need to break your pages into categories. This is done by inserting breaks. To do so, click on Insert on your header menu and select Break. A window will pop up and click on Next Page under Section Break Types. You have now successfully created a break between the two pages or sections. You may repeat this process for all your categories and chapters if needed.

Now, click on View and then Header and Footer. Start inserting text into them and you will notice that all pages are still showing the same headers and footers. No worries, this is because they are set as default to be the same as the previous. Simple click a button on the screen to unlink the headers and footers from each breaks.

That's it! You have successfully created different headers and footers for your pages.

Until next time, take care.

Thanks for your tips about this blog. 1 thing I wish
to say is always that purchasing consumer electronics items from the
Internet is certainly not new. Actually, in the past decade alone,
the market for online electronic products has grown drastically.
Today, you will find practically any type of electronic gizmo and tools on the Internet, which
include cameras along with camcorders to computer parts and gaming consoles.
