Word Macro

Trying to go to final page/section, unlink to previous footers, then delete this footer.  However, get an error on the 2nd line.  After testing, noticed that the RecordMacro does not record accessing the Footer.  What is the command for that?  Thank you.

    Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdStory
    Selection.HeaderFooter.LinkToPrevious = Not Selection.HeaderFooter. _
        LinkToPrevious
    Selection.WholeStory
    Selection.Delete Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=1
    ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.SeekView = wdSeekMainDocument

I would do it like this:
Sub HeaderRange()
    Dim sec As Section
    
    Set sec = ActiveDocument.Sections.Last
    sec.Headers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).LinkToPrevious = False
    sec.Headers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).Range.Delete
End Sub

I probably wan't clear.  I meant to delete the Footer.  See below.   Giving credit anyway.

Sub HeaderRange()
    Dim sec As Section
   
    Set sec = ActiveDocument.Sections.Last
    sec.Footers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).LinkToPrevious = False
    sec.Footers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).Range.Delete

End Sub

Yes. You can delete the footer in the same way.
