Before you begin

Before taking this course, it will help you to have a basic familiarity with adding headers and footers to Word 2007 documents. For that, look at this training course: Header and footer basics.

Your Word 2007 document has several parts. How do you apply headers and footers and vary them so they're appropriate to each part?

If your document has a cover page, for example, you may want no page number to show there. And you'd like the headers for each chapter to contain the title for that chapter only.

See how to tailor your headers and footers to your content. Read this page fully to get the scope of this course, and then click Next to continue.
