I am creating a template and I want to put footnotes in it. On the first footnote. I want the footnote character in the body of the document and at the bottom of the page to be an asterisk. I want all consecutive footnotes in the body and at the bottom to be numbers, starting with the number 1. Is it possible to do this and if so how?

I have just tried it, and it seems to work. When you insert the first footnote, put an asterisk in the 'Custom mark' box. For the second footnote, select '1' in the 'Start at:' box.

In Word 2007, to get to the Dialog box that Graham is talking about, it is necessary to click the dialog launch icon located at the bottom right of the group.
