Page Numbers and headers & footers



In Word 2007, how do I make the page number a footer on the first page and
header on subsequent pages? I also need to switch back to footers in the
bibliography later on? Is there a simple way to do this?

In Header & Footer Tools Design tab of the Ribbon, check the Different First
Page box in the Options section and in the First Page Footer pane, insert a
{ PAGE } field where you want it in the Footer and then go to the Primary
Header Pane (scroll down to the second page of your document) insert the {
PAGE } field where you want it in the Header.

For the Bibliography, you will need to insert a Section break before it and
unlink the headers and footers in that section from those in the previous
section so that you can set them up independent of those in the first
Section of your document.

Hope this helps.
