Default Distance bottom edge of the page to bottom edge footer - not accep

Friendly Greetings To The Community ,
All my settings in Word 2003 (re. page setup etc) are correct , however Word
fights me to accept " the distance from the bottom edge of the paper to the
bottom edge of the footer ".
Bottom TEXT margin is set at 20 mm thus leaving me with 20 mm between the
bottom of my last line and the bottom of the page ; within this margin of 20
mm I would like to set the distance from the bottom edge of the footer to the
bottom edge of the page at 10 mm - thus I should have a margin of 10 mm
between the bottom edge of the page and the bottom edge of my footer.
This would give me a total footer height of about 10 mm as well , which is
now proving to be troublesome to achieve - I use the same settings for the
header without any problem whatsoever.
The bottom edge of the footer is now flush with the bottom edge of the page
and the total height of the footer is about 15 mm as well - not what I want.
Again I must also repeat that my page settings and margins are absolutely
correct.
Thanking You In Advance For Your Response(s),

Is this what you are actually getting in print or just what you are seeing
on the screen? The header and footer panes are represented differently in
Word. I'm not defending this, just stating a fact: the footer pane (judging
from the broken lines) does appear to extend to the bottom of the page, but
you will find that if you add lines of text, it will grow upward, not down.
This is just a display design flaw.

Dear Suzanne ,
Thanks for your very prompt reply - I haven't progressed to the stage of
printing a document with footer because I had noticed , as you correctly
point out , on screen the footer pane is not represented as it should be (now
using Word 2003 - whereas in earlier versions of Word this footer
misrepresentation didn't occur) .
Thus I had added text and indeed seen the top edge of the footer move up -
simply didn't know that Word 2003 has this display design flaw - I was really
focussed on the header and footer panes being represented the same , first on
screen as I always work in print view modus .
Thanks Again ,
Prince - Royal Realm

AFAIR, the footer has been displayed this way in all previous versions of
Word, but perhaps I'm remembering incorrectly. I'm sure someone who has an
earlier version can tell us.
