How to transfer Lotus Notes data to a MS Word header or footer


It's not possible to add a form field to a header or footer in Word.


In order to map a Notes field into a header or footer, you will have to use bookmarks. Here is the procedure:

Open Word document and set the cursor in the header (or footer) of the document.

Go to the Insert - Bookmark, enter the name of the bookmark and press "Add".

The bookmark will be created, although you might not be able to see it (in order to see all the bookmarks, you should enable the bookmarks view: Tools->Options...->View tab->Show section->Bookmarks checkbox).

Once you have created a Word template, you can proceed with field mappings. Bookmarks are generally mapped with the following syntax:

Notice that you can have more than one bookmark defined on your Word template.
