    Bulk removal (and addition) of headers and footers in Word

    Hello

    I would like to remove a whole load of headers / footers from Word. All googling seems to lead back to this site:sobolsoft

    This will only do 1 file at a time unless you pay 20 bucks. I don't mind that so much if I have to but is there a free one before I pay?

    Also, free mass adding of headers and footers would also be good.

    Would it not be possible to change the base template somehow?

    Just thinking a bit outside the box..

    Do you mean you might have 100's of Word documents using a specific header and footer and you want to remove or edit it on each one?

    Without something third party I can't see how else you can do this.

    Thanks for the reply. Almost. 100s with different headers and footers so want to strip them all out.

    I agree. The link I provided seems to work but I would prefer a free app if anyone knows of one.

    Could you not script this somehow? Some kind of VBScript could probably do it or an AutoIt script would probably do the trick... you could then sell it for £19 and undercut the other guy

    Heres some freeware:

    I haven't tested it but it does not seem to have any viruses in it when I scanned it

    Word is also has full automation with VBS, examples here:
