Re: want help with headers in Word 2000

Yardbird and all;
If I understand you correctly, you can place your cursor in the header area by 
selecting headers and footers from the view menu. As for accessing the auto 
text; you can either go to the header footer tool bar by pressing alt and then 
ctrl tab or just go to the insert menu and select auto text. You should find 
the selection with title author, and page. 

Now, this also got me thinking about how one can have two headers, one for even 
pages and one for odd pages but I have forgotten how to do this.

  Go to the view menu

  Press enter on header and footer.

  Type the title.

  Press the alt key and then control tab until you hear the toolbar for 
  headers and footers. It should say insert auto text.

  Arrow down to page and hit enter.

   You should be back in the header. At this point you should have the 
  title and page. Here you can manipulate the type as you would in Word, 
  point size, font, alignment.



  To have numbering pick up on the second page, go to the insert menu, 
  enter on page numbers and uncheck show number on first page.

  Debbie,

  Do you know how to include a changing page number in a header?  I don't 
  mean
  by using the Insert/Date and time feature, I mean within a header. 
  Let's
  say you're creating a document of five or so pages about creating 
  headers
  using Jaws.  You want the header to begin on page 2, so, as Judith
  suggested, you go to the beginning of page 2 before beginning your 
  header.
  Now, let's say you want the header to read

  Headers-- 2 on this page, header-- 3 on the next, etc.  (Francis, I know 
  you
  don't like the appearance of this style of header, but it's required in
  certain professional areas).  I remember from a few years ago, a few
  versions of Word ago, that you would type the text you wanted, Headers, 
  in
  this case, and the em dash, a space, and then a certain code that told 
  Word
  to insert the current page number.

  I don't know how it's done, now, and have a lot of trouble accessing my 
  word
  help with Jaws in Word 2000.  Do you know how this is done, currently?

  Thanks.

  To add to this header discussion;
  I often add auto text to my header like the file name, file and path, 
  and or
  the date created. You can then also press the down arrow and create a
  footer. Auto text has the page number x of y so your numbers show as say
  page 1 of 2. If you add more pages, your footer will adjust accordingly.

    Francis, of course there's more than one way, etc.  I'm just talking 
  the
    most standard.  And I wasn't comparing anything to the toolbar.  I 
  can't
  see
    the toolbar, so that isn't what I was comparing anything to.  but 
  okay,
  I'll
    remember I can just change the view if my C key happens to stick...
    <grin>

    Hi Daniel,

    Yup, you can do Alt C, but I found you can save your work in the 
  header
  and
    exit the header edit area by going to change the view to normal.  I 
  found
  it
    by accident, and it's a lot easier than working with the toolbar.
  However,
    the nice thing about Windows is that there is no one way to get the 
  job
    done.

    Francis
