Insert Fields into Headers / Footers


You may want to insert more than text into the header or footer. One option is to select Insert and then Fields which will allow you to choose from these items.

If you choose Date it will look something like this, notice text has already been added.

You can position the field anywhere in the header or footer that you like. Here the footer has the page number in the center of the footer.

When you insert fields into a document you will notice the gray background around the field. Though this won't print, however, you may want to eliminate the gray. This can be done by choosing View and Field Shadings, which is a toggle turning it on or off.
