WORD 2007 - Solid line above page footer

I have a document which contains a footer with a page number. As per the screenshot below, the footer has a horizontal line above it.

Subsequently, I created a 2nd document (with corrections to page 15).  I inserted a footer with "Page 15 - Corrected" at the bottom but it does NOT contain a horizaontal line.

How can I get this line to appear?
Thanks

It's not easy to be sure from a picture, but it could be a Font underline

Select the option to Edit the footer on a page where it is showing the line correctly.  Once you are in the footer area, press CTRL + A to select all in the footer, then press CTRL + C to copy it.  Now go to the page where the line is missing and select the option to Edit the footer.  Then press CTRL + A to select all, then press CTRL + V to paste the footer from the other page.  Then make any changes necessary to the page number.

Seaton -
I tried that but the underline still does not appear. Thanks.

Graham - sorry the screenshot wasn't more helpful but thanks for checking in on this one.

Graham,
OK let's try the paragraph border. How do I add one?
Tks.

If that didn't work, then the line may not be in the footer, but just at the bottom of the page.  Try selecting all on the page, then copy it and past it to a new page, and see if the line shows up.

Graham:
Thanks again. I credited two of your comments b/c when taken together, they comprise the solution.

Seaton:
Thanks for your efforts to help!

Ciao for now,

Thanks. It still could have been font underlining. To try that, select the text, open the Font dialogue with the tiny arrow in the Font group, and choose an 'Underline style'

I'll try that when I get a chance. Thanks again.
