Copying footers from multiple documents RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to copy the information in the footers of hundreds of word documents into one word document as a list. Is there an easier way to do this than manually copying and pasting it over?

  • This can be done with a macro, but the biggest issues you'll need to address are:
    • the fact that every Section of a given Word document has three different footers, each of which may or may not have any content; and
    • the impact on fields that might be present in the footers as, when copied and pasted elsewhere, they may not display the correct results.
