Okay.

I'm sure this is something stupid, easy, etc..

I've got a bunch of machines (all WinXP, Office 2003) that won't show headers and footers in Print Layout mode.

Any tips or suggestions would be really vv-much appreciated!

I'll ask the obvious...  So what happens when you select Header and Footer from the View menu?  Is the option not even available?  Do the header and footer editing regions appear at all?  Are you saying that the header and footer appear in other views, but simply disappear when you switch to Print Layout?

Can you see the text in the headers/footers when you're in print preview mode?

Oh me, Oh my..  

Thanks to all of you for your help.  I can't believe it.  I've just nominated myself for the "blonde Bimbo" of the week award.

Archerslo's got it.  Turn the viewing of 'em on, and they show up.  

Now..  if I only had a rubber chicken to slap myself about the face with.
