Footer style changing entire footer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on Office.Interop.Word using c#. I have a simple winform and has a button and all this button does,  place the name of the document at the footer. 

    If I use the following code, it changed the style for the existing footer (like page number or any other footer). How can I not changes the existing footer style and add the new footer as I want.

    //footerRange = wordSection.Footers[word.WdHeaderFooterIndex.wdHeaderFooterPrimary].Range;
                            //footerRange.Font.ColorIndex = word.WdColorIndex.wdBlack;
                            //footerRange.Font.Size = 6;
                            //footerRange.Font.Name = "Arial";

  • Hello,

    You could try to select the end of the footer range and then set font style for the selected range.

    Here is the simple code.

                string documentName = oDoc.Name;
                oWord.ScreenUpdating = false;
                Word.HeaderFooter footer = oDoc.Sections[1].Footers[Word.WdHeaderFooterIndex.wdHeaderFooterPrimary]; 
                oDoc.ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.SeekView = Word.WdSeekView.wdSeekCurrentPageFooter;
                oWord.Selection.MoveRight(Word.WdUnits.wdCharacter, 1);
                oWord.Selection.Font.ColorIndex = Word.WdColorIndex.wdRed;
                oWord.Selection.Font.Size = 6;
                oWord.Selection.Font.Name = "Arial";
                oDoc.ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.SeekView = Word.WdSeekView.wdSeekMainDocument;
                oWord.ScreenUpdating = true;
