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

Go to View -> Header and Footer.

That will open the tool bar for you.


That is the problem — it does not appear when we try to open it that way…it’s gone!



You can manually add the Header and Footer button in Tools -> Customize.

In the Commands tab go to the View Category. Scroll down until you see Header and Footer near the bottom of the list. Drag that icon to an existing toolbar to add it there.

    If you are not find header and footer option in your word application, then you would have to install it's individual features. If the feature that you want is not installed automatically in Office 2003, follow these steps: 1. Quit all programs. 2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. 3. Double-click Add or Remove Programs, click Microsoft Office 2003, and then click Change. 4. In the Microsoft Office 2003 Setup dialog box, click Add or Remove Features, and then click Next. 5. Click to select the check boxes of the components that you want to install. 6. Click to select the Choose advance customization of applications check box, and then click Next. 7. Expand the product that you want to customize, click the icon to the left of the feature name, and then click the installation state that you want. For example, if you want to remove a feature, set it to Not Available. To install a feature immediately, click Run from My Computer, or click Installed on First Use if you want to install the feature when it is requested for the first time. 8. When you finish changing the installation states, click Update.
