In this set of steps and screenshots, readers are provided with directions on creating a footer using the 2007 version of Word. In this chapter, you will be guided toward manually inserting a page number in your footer for your thesis or dissertation.

Step one

First open a Word document (Microsoft Word 2007 version)

Next, create the title for your manuscript and center it. Your title should be no more than 15 words, as per APA 6th edition, and should be centered left to right and about one-third from the top of the page.

After you have created your Title page and your Approval page, then either use the page break or control/enter to force a third page. The third page will be your Dedication page.

Now that we have created three pages, we will now create the page footer first for page two, because the first page does not have a page footer.

  • √ Double click footer

  • √ Go to Design
  • √ Go to Header&Footer
  • √ Click on Page Number

When you click on Page Number, go to Bottom of Page, then Plain Number 2:

Your page should resemble the following:

You must now change the page number to a lower case Roman numeral (e.g., iii, iv).

  • √ Highlight Number
  • √ Go to Page Number
  • √ Go to Format Page Number

  • √ Click on Format Page number
  • √ Click on Number Format
  • √ Highlight: i, ii, iii, …
  • √ Click OK

Your page should resemble the following:

Step two: creating a different first page

  • √ Go to Design
  • √ Go to Options
  • √ Click on icon with "Different First Page"

By following these steps, you have now created a page footer that will be at the bottom of your manuscript for pages 3 through the List of Figures (e.g., Dedication page, Abstract, Acknowledgements, Preface, Table of Contents, and List of Tables). Your Title page and Approval sheet should not be numbered. We now have to create the Running head for page one (See chapter for Running head).

Step three: to create a break in your footer to accommodate the body of your thesis (e.g., chapters or sections)

  • √ Go to Page Layout
  • √ Go to Page Setup
  • √ Click on Breaks

  • √ Click on Continuous Break

  • √ Double click on the Header
  • √ The Header title should be titled as a different section as the Header and Footer from the previous page
  • √ Make sure that the “Link to Previous” button is not clicked, otherwise, the sections will still be linked

You can now create the rest of your manuscript.
