Insert The Chapter Number And Title In A Header Or Footer

First divided your document into sections in order to insert chapter numbers and titles into headers and footers.

1. If you haven't done so already, insert a section break where you want to start a new section that contains a different chapter.
a. Click where you want to insert a section break.
b. On the Insert menu, click Break.
c. Under Section break types, click the option that describes where you want the new section to begin.

Note: If you have already inserted a page break to cause the chapter to start on a new page, delete the page break and replace it with a section break that starts on a new page.

2. Apply a built-in heading style to the chapter number and chapter title by clicking a heading style in the Style box on the Formatting toolbar.

Or to have Microsoft Word automatically number headings, use the Bullets and Numbering dialog box to format chapter headings.

a. On the Format menu, click Bullets and Numbering, and then click the Outline Numbered tab.
b. Click a chapter-numbering style (one that includes the text "Heading 1" or "Heading 2," and so on), and then click OK.
c. Type the text you want for the numbered heading, and then press ENTER.
d. To add the next numbered heading, go to the next chapter heading, click the arrow next to the Style box on the Formatting toolbar, and then select the heading style you specified in step 2.

===========================================

1. In the first chapter, on the View menu, click Header and Footer.

2. If necessary, move the insertion point to the header or footer you want to change.

3. Insert the chapter number or title.
a. On the Insert menu, point to Reference, and then click Cross-reference.
b. In the Reference type box, click Heading.
c. In the For which heading box, click the heading that contains the chapter number and title.
d. In the Insert reference to box, select what you want to insert in the header or footer. For example,
• Click Heading number to insert the chapter number.
• Click Heading text to insert the chapter heading.
e. Click Insert, and then click Close.

4. Click Show Next Button image to move to the header or footer of the next chapter.

5. If the header or footer in this chapter matches the one you just created, click Link to Previous Button image on the Header and Footer toolbar to break the connection between the header or footer in the current chapter and the previous chapter.

6. If there's already text in the header or footer that you don't want, delete the text before inserting the chapter number and title.

7. Repeat step 5 to insert the chapter number or title of the current chapter.

8. For each chapter in the document, repeat steps 5 through 9.

SOURCE: Revision Date Insert into MS Word

Since you would be "saving" a change to the document (being a revision), you may want to look into inserting a "Field" named "SaveDate" so it will hold the date the doc was saved.

Position your cursor where you'd like the date to be in your docuemnt, then: Insert > Field... > In Field names, select SaveDate, select a format and click <OK>.

Hope this helps!

How to remove headers on chapter pages only with word 2010


That would depend on how you have your document set up.

If each chapter is defined as a "section" in Word, when editing the header for each section, in the Design tab, Options panel, select Different First Page.

That will make the header appear only on the frst page of each chapter.

If this isn't what you meant, please be more specific about the layout of your book, document, chapters, etc.

Hi there when i log into slide show expressions i get a ' black/blank window right in the middle of the title page. pse HELP i need to remove this window


This is quite normal. It just means that no project is opened up yet. You need to either create a new project / slide show or open an existing one. The little black window in the middle is only "reserving" the spot where the chapter icon will appear on your menu page once you've newly created a chapter or slide show. Later on, the little black window will be replaced with one showing one of the photos you have inserted - you can choose which photo you want to display as chapter icon. You can also alter the position of these chapter icons in the "Design" tab.

This may sound trivial, but my husband has written a WordPerfect document and needs to add a title page at the very beginning. We can't figure out how to insert the page without messing up the whole...


Well, I don't know wordperfect very well, but if the document is going to be delivered in printed form, you could always just create a new, one-page document as your title page and print the two documents separately.
