I want to build a macro that can change different documents so that they all are in the same template. for example change font, size and add header and footer.

Anyone know a good way to do this. I think i can do the code i just don't know how it should work?? Any ideas

j8547,

How are you doing?

You can achieve this in numerous ways, something as simple as:
    Selection.Font.Name = "Times New Roman" 
    Selection.Font.Size = 10 

Open in new window

Allows you to change all text to "Times New Roman" and "10" size.

As for your headers/footers, something along the lines of:
Sub EditHeadersAndFooters()

Dim i As Long

For i = 1 To ActiveDocument.Sections.Count
    With ActiveDocument.Sections(i)
        .Headers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).Range.Text = "HeaderText"
        .Footers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).Range.Text = "FooterText"
    End With
Next

End Sub

Open in new window

Might work - replacing "HeaderText" with whatever you want in the header and "FooterText" with whatever you want in the Footer.

These are basic examples but should allow you to get started. If you run into issues or wish to make these more complex, such as adding page numbers, referencing sections of the document differently, then please post a new question with whatever code you have created and we can build on that to get you all squared away!

Hope this helps,
Kevin
