I have a series of ISO controlled documents that need to have a watermark appear only when printed that says something like "UNCONTROLLED WHEN PRINTED". This watermark would appear in the footer of the printed document. I do not want this watermark to appear when the document is read electronically.

Looked around online and couldn't find a solution that works the way I want it to. I can setup a watermark in the print driver settings but that isn't the solution I need. It looks like I will have to use VBA to accomplish this as this isn't a feature in Microsoft Word 2010.

  • You are correct. You need to use VBA to acomplish this. – Ramhound May 29 '15 at 13:17

    Yes, but if you have to be careful if you have any other hidden text that you don't want printed. – Chenmunka May 29 '15 at 13:24
