QAT is the Quick Access Toolbar, which is the little row of buttons to the right of the Office button.

In Office 2007 it's the quick way to assign a macro to button

A tutorial in creating macros is a bit beyond the scope of these little boxes, however, if you want to learn more there are lots of resources on the Web that will lead you through the process.

Here is one

But if you Google 'Word 2007 macro tutorial' or similar you should find a lot of help out there

Alternatively, have a look on Amazon.  They have loads of books on VBA/Macro programming

Hope this helps

When you make a footer you can do first, last, all, odd, even, etc...

Thanks. I got that one. What I am asking is can there be multiple selections on the first page only?

Not sure what you mean by 'multiple selections'

I don't think that you can save footers into the footer gallery that are customised as first page only

You could create a macros to do the same thing, then stick it on the QAT

Something like:

Sub AddFirstPageFooter()
   
    ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.SeekView = wdSeekCurrentPageFooter
    Application.ActiveDocument.PageSetup.DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter = True
    ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.SeekView = wdSeekFirstPageFooter

    Selection.TypeText Text:="Your first page footer text or fields here"
    ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.SeekView = wdSeekMainDocument
End Sub
