    I am so glad to have found this forum!

    Yes, I am using outdated software, but this 5-yr old laptop came with XP and it still works great for my purposes. I am also using Office 2003.

    I have been asked to format a Word 2003 document with a header/page numbering system as follows: Name / Title / page number; e.g., Smith / Report / 17. It should appear at the upper right.

    I see there is a way to do something close: Author, Page #, Date, by going to View, Header and Footer, Insert AutoText. But that's not going to cut it.

    Is there a way to accomplish what I've been asked to do (Smith / Report / 17)?

    Many thanks!

    You don't need to use AutoText. Since only the page number changes, just type in the rest how you want it and insert the page number field at the end.
