I created a template in Word 2010. In this template, there is a footer and a header. When I create a document based on this template, I'd like for some pages not to show them.
Place each part of your document that requires a different header/footer in separate
sections, by adding "Next page" section-breaks (Page layout -> Breaks -> Section breaks -> Next page).
Then, for each section, insert header/footer. When editing header/footer, "de-click" the button "Link to previous" in the toolbar. That indicates that this header/footer will be different from the header/footer of the previous section. Then edit the header/footer, affecting only this section (possibly also the next ones, but not the previous). Do this for all sections.
Try this. I'm sure it will help. Remove Header or Footer from the Second Page of a Word 2007 Document
- Click on the first page of your document (within the body).
Go to the Page Layout tab on the ribbon (third tab) and click on the tiny arrow in the lower right of the Page Setup group to expand it (see image).
Click on the Layout tab (third tab).
- Check the “Different first page” checkbox.
- Ensure that the “Apply to” field is set to “This point Forward.”
Click on OK.
It seem that Microsoft has excluded any away to specifically pick which individual page to show or not show the header or footer. Here the few limited options available: effect all pages at once; effect odd and even pages differently; effect the first page differently from the rest; the combination of all these.
How to configure heading and footer differently depending the page:
- Select the Laytop tab from the ribbon
- [Click] on either Header or Footer
- Select the wanted design
- Notice under the sub tab of Design there are check boxes: (See Note 1)
- Different First Page
- Different Odd & Even Pages (See Note 2)
- Show Document Text (Can be disregarded since it's not related this subject.)
- Select the wanted settings
Note 1: These choices will effect both the footer and header. Exampe: It isn't possible to have different odd & even pages selected for header with out having different odd & even pages selected for the footer too. Additionally, to have all the pages effected the same, remove the check marks from both choices.
Note 2: When first editing an odd or even page the heading or footer will effect both types pages even if Different Odd & Even Pages is selected. Do not worry, after finishing with the current page header or footer, select the next page and make your changes. Once this has been done, all old pages will be the same as will the even ones.
