Sorry, I thought I was talking to OpenOffice experts. I have just started using OpenOffice and struck a snag. The procedure is much the same as MSWord -Insert Footer; then fields; then document info; but there is no 'number of words'
. I clicked on 'Other' which opened up a table containing "statistics' on one table and 'words' on the other and I clicked that. The number '0' came up but as
I typed more words nothing happened and the number of words was not updated
.WAIT I have experimented some more and find that if I type a few words
and then click on Tools/ Word Count it updates the footer. Wow. Cracked it. Sorry
again. I owe you a beer.

I'm glad to to hear that your solved your issue.

This forum is for any type of "office" application question, although the vast majority of the questions are related to Excel. That said, a well written question in any forum should include all of the information that readers might need to help answer it.

If you go back and re-read your post, making believe that you are one of us way out here on the interweb, you'll note that it would hard to discern the details behind your post.

I don't mention this as criticism, but only as a "teaching moment" so that in the future you can get prompt answers to your questions by providing all of the relevant information upfront.

Thank you. You are quite right. I don't know what I did on my first post to
be so vague. I was so agitated at the time that I didn't proof read. Sorry and thankyou
