Ask Sam: What about us Word 2003 users?

Last week, I provided instructions for setting up a different first page header in a Word 2007 document. Word 2003 users wanted to know why I left them out. So for y'all, here is how you accomplish the same task in Word 2003.
  1. Open your document and select File > Page Setup. The Page Setup dialog appears.
  2. Click the Layout Tab.
  3. Check "Different first page" and click OK.
  4. Click View > Header and Footer. The header at the top of page one of the file (your cover page) is labeled "First Page Header".
  5. On the Header and Footer toolbar, click Show Next. The cursor moves to the second page header, where the label is "Header."
  6. On the Header and Footer toolbar, click the Format Page Number Button.
  7. Click the "Start at" radio button and set the value to 0. Click OK.
Once you have your header set up the way you want, either click the Close button on the Header and Footer toolbar, or double-click in the body of the document.

"Ask Sam" is a weekly feature. If you have questions about using Windows (XP, Vista, or Windows 7) or Word (2003 or 2007), send e-mail to stfalco AT and I'll try to answer your questions here.
