How to adjust Footer distance from page edge in MS WORD 2003

  K*B 20:44 10 Sep 2013

Friends, I have a document prepared in MS Word 2003 with a Footer. I'm not satisfied with the distance of the Footer from the bottom edge of the page. I have tried many options but have failed. How then do I do that? I need to move the Footer as far down of the page as poosible. Please help. Thanks in advance.

Could be one or other of two things (or both of them): The doc is 'Read Only' and/or the page size is set to 'Letter' and you are using A4.

First make a copy of the document (to play with). rightclick the copy file and click on 'Properties', untick the 'Read Only'

Open your copy of the document and click on: File | Page Setup | and 'Paper' tab and choose A4 from combo drop down list.

Click on 'Layout' tab and alter Headers and Footers from edge of paper. (this is the measurement that leaves a gap (blank part) before the Header starts and leaves a gap (blank part) to the edge of paper after the Footer has finished.
