Default Footers

I need to discontinue the footer on the last two pages of a document. I have
different first page checked and a section break at the bottom of the
previous page. When I delete the footer on page 4 it deletes the footer on
the entire document!
Thanks

Default Footers

You need to unlink the footers in the last section from the ones in the
previous section. Note that the First Page Footer is linked to the previous
First Page Footer and the Footer to the previous Footer, and both must be
unlinked (unless you disable "Different first page" in the last section, in
which case you have only the Footer to unlink).

Default Footers

Hi cheribrady,

You could do this with a field coded as:
{IF{={NUMPAGES}-{PAGE}} 2 "Existing footer"}

Note: The field brace pairs (ie '{ }') for the above example are created via Ctrl-F9 - you can't simply type them or copy & paste
them from this message.
