Adding a Standard Header or Footer in Excel 2007
Headers and footers typically appear on every page of a report. In Excel 2007, a header is printed in the top margin, and a footer is printed in the bottom margin. Headers and footers are often used to identify the document used to produce the report and to display the page numbers and the date and time of printing. Unless you specify otherwise, Excel does not automatically add either a header or footer to a new workbook.
Position the mouse pointer over the Click to Add Header section at the top, or in the Click to Add Footer section at the bottom.
Before you click one of these areas, decide whether you want your headers or footers on the left, one the right, or in the middle.
Click to position the insertion point in either the left, center, or right section of the header or footer area.
Excel adds a Header & Footer Tools contextual tab with its own Design tab.
Click the Design tab if it isn’t already selected.
The Design tab is divided into Header & Footer, Header & Footer Elements, Navigation, and Options groups.
Click either the Header or Footer button (as appropriate) in the Header & Footer group at the left end of the Design tab.
The standard options for the Header or Footer display in a drop-down list.
Click the header or footer example you want to use on the Header or Footer drop-down menu.
The option you selected now appears in the header or footer area of the worksheet. Repeat Steps 3–6 if you want to try another selection.
You won’t see the added header or footer in Normal view, but it’s there when you preview or print the worksheet.
If, after selecting some stock header or footer info, you decide that you no longer need either the header or footer printed in your report, you can remove it. Simply click the (None) option at the top of the Header button’s or Footer button’s drop-down menus.
Use the Go to Header and Go to Footer buttons in the Navigation group of the Design tab to quickly jump between the header and footer of the worksheet. Remember that the Design tab appears only after you've clicked inside the header or footer area.
