Two footers in a Word 2007 document

I can find plenty of examples of how to have alternating footers, but I can't find any help for how to have 2 footers on every page. I need the file path left align as a footer (which I know how to do) AND the page number right align on every page. When I do the page number it overwrites the file path. What I don't know how to do is have both of those things on every page.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You should just have one footer.
It should be setup to left align the path and right align the page.

    When I do that, because I am inserting the file path through Quick Parts in the footer and not typing it and inserting the page number and not typing it they overwrite each other where I can't have both.

    I am using 2003, but I assume this will work in 2007. It will only be a single footer. Within the footer, insert a two column table. Adjust the columns as you wish and put the filename in the left column, left-aligned and the date in the right column right-aligned. This will cause the filename to wrap instead of overwriting the date.

    Here is exactly what I am doing and it is not working. Tried: Insert - Footer - 3 Columns Left Column - Left Align - Footer Design Tab - Insert Group - Quick Parts - Field - Categories is Document Information - Field Names is FileName - Format is Title Case - Field Options - Checked Add path to filename Right Column - Footer Design Tab - Header & Footer Group - Page Number - Bottom of Page As soon as I insert the page number the file path disappears. I also tried doing a blank footer, inserting a 2 column table and doing it that way with the same results. The page number overwrites the file path. I need to not just type in the file path but have it update if someone moves the document. All help is GREATLY appreciated as I need to get this agreement prepped and signed.

    View Header/Footer and switch to footer (but you knew that already). At the top-left in Word, you should see the sort of tab character currently set. Click it until you get a right-align tab. Leave your pointer floating above until the hint pops up showing you the type (like decimal tab, right [align] tab, left [align] tab, etc). If you do not see the horizontal ruler, turn it on. This lets you see the tabs that have been set (only for the line currently selected). Click on the ruler to place the currently selected tab type at your desired position. Don't worry if it is in the wrong place because you can click the tab character and slide it where you want it. Type the path on the left and hit Tab until you reach the right-align tab location. Put in the page number. If it goes beyond the edge of the page, don't worry. Just move your cursor somewhere in the blank space after the path and hit Delete until the page number moves to the correct position.

    To remove offending tab characters, simply click and drag it out of the ruler by pulling it down and releasing the mouse button.
