I'm creating a dynamic word document, in which I am adding headers & footers. I have ran into an issue where I need to add page numbers on the left of my footer, and a disclaimer on the right of my footer. I figured the best way to do this would be to add a table to my footer, and separate the text with cells. Though I can't get it to work.

The code I added to the Code section is what I have tried so far.
Though after adding text to oTableFooter, its just being added to the body, not the footer.

All help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Range wrdRng = oDoc.Bookmarks.get_Item(ref oEndOfDoc).Range;
oDoc.ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.SeekView = WdSeekView.wdSeekCurrentPageFooter;
Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Table oTableFooter = oDoc.ActiveWindow.Selection.Tables.Add(wrdRng, 1, 2, ref oMissing, ref oMissing);

I think I just figured it out myself.

I resulted to just writing tabs to my footer, to try and space the text out... though it appears when you add tabs, it'll automatically assume you want the text in the left, center or right side of the page.

The following code snippet will add page numbers to the left side of each footer page, the date the document was created in the center of each footer page, and disclaimer text on the right of each footer page.

It is relative to how the text is aligned though. Aligning the text to the right, the first text you write to the footer will show up on the right. After doing one tab, the next text will be in the center.

Hope this helps anyone else having the same problem.
oDoc.ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.SeekView = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdSeekView.wdSeekCurrentPageFooter;
                    oDoc.ActiveWindow.ActivePane.Selection.Paragraphs.Alignment = WdParagraphAlignment.wdAlignParagraphLeft;
oDoc.ActiveWindow.Selection.Font.Name = "Times New Roman";
oDoc.ActiveWindow.Selection.Font.Size = 10;
oDoc.ActiveWindow.Selection.TypeText("Page ");
Object CurrentPage = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdFieldType.wdFieldPage;
                    oDoc.ActiveWindow.Selection.Fields.Add(oDoc.ActiveWindow.Selection.Range, ref CurrentPage, ref oMissing, ref oMissing);
oDoc.ActiveWindow.Selection.TypeText(" of ");
Object TotalPages = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdFieldType.wdFieldNumPages;
                    oDoc.ActiveWindow.Selection.Fields.Add(oDoc.ActiveWindow.Selection.Range, ref TotalPages, ref oMissing, ref oMissing);
oDoc.ActiveWindow.Selection.TypeText("\t");
 
string dt = DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString() + " " + DateTime.Now.ToShortTimeString();
oDoc.ActiveWindow.Selection.TypeText(dt);
oDoc.ActiveWindow.Selection.TypeText("\t");
oDoc.ActiveWindow.Selection.TypeText("Disclaimer...");
