Headers and footers are areas in the top and bottom margins (margin: The blank space outside the printing area on a page.) of each page in a document.
You can insert text or graphics in headers and footers — for example, page numbers, the date, a company logo, the document's title or file name, or the author's name — that are printed at the top or bottom of each page in a document.
You can work in the header and footer areas by clicking Header and Footer on the View menu.
