how to add an auto-reference from a table into the footer RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Word 2007, I want to put a reference into the footer, which already exists in a table on the first page.

    I made a Word template for a letter and there is a small table on the first page. It contains a date, a reference, etc. I need this reference (which changes every time) to be automatically shown in the footer.

    Is this possible? We always forget to change the footer if we can't do it automatically.

  • Use a specific paragraph (or character) style to format the reference and then insert a STYLEREF field, pointing to the style name, in the footer. To insert the field, click Insert tab | Quick Parts | Field.
