Add headers to Word outputs

Design templates, styles, & page layouts

These are the high-level steps required to include a header in your document's printed output. The following topics provide more information on creating the quick parts, specifying the entry in Author, and setting the entries used by different sections.

  1. Identify the information you want to include.
  2. In your Word publishing template, create a header and apply formatting.

    Use Fields for information that may change from section to section, such as the chapter name, or from document to document, such as release version, in order to use the same header in more than one place.

  3. Select the entire header area and save it to Word's quick part gallery.
  4. Name the quick part.
  5. In the Media object for the sections of your document where you want to include that header, select the quick part's name.
