    Hello!

    After banging my head against the wall and fighting with Visual Basic to create a template full of fancy bells and whistles for my client, I've come up against a probably simple, but amazingly annoying issue.

    When I apply my template to a document, the headers and footers don't appear. I don't understand. (Yes, I click View --> Headers, Footers.) They're not there.

    I go back to the template. They exist. I create a new document. They exist. I apply the template to a document with no headers/footers (or in some cases existing headers/footers) and nothing.

    If it were just for me, I'd come up with a workaround. But I need to hand this template off to a client who needs to work with it. Cutting and pasting, etc, isn't going to do it.

    Surely there is a way to make the headers and footers appear when applying to an EXISTING document.

    Thank you so much, in advance, for any help you might provide.

    Cheers,
    Michelle

    Welcome to the forum. If you post the Word document as an attachment we can better look at it. I think you cannot post attachments until your 7th post or so though. If you mail me the document and let me know on the forum, then I will post it up here for you. Also if you feel uncomfortable posting the document, just post the code instead. ;)
