If I remember correctly thinking back to use of Office 2000, I think the Header & Footer options were on the Insert Menu.

Select Footer and it goes into a dialogue where you can set standard or custom headers & footers.

There will be three areas into which to insert your required entries; left, centre and right. Select which area you need the footer to appear by placing the cursor into it. Along the bottom of the window there are some icons for inserting some Auto text entries:

- date looks like a calendar; this will insert text  "&date" which when printed will show current date
- path looks like a folder; this will insert text "&file" which will show as file name and path

Insert spaces between them as required by using the space bar.

For this to be applied to all documents it will have to be written into the Normal.dot template but once the Normal.dot template has been amended it will only apply to future documents not those already created.

You should put a Date field and a FileName field in the footer. There is an option to update fields before printing which should be set. I know little about GPO, but I guess it would be possible to set up Word options,

Where to put the footer is more problematic. If the footer in in the Normal template, then it would not be in documents created from other templates. Also the Normal template should be considered as a user's own template. It will reside in the user's own PC (or an unshared network folder). If it is deleted or damaged, Word creates a new default one, hence losing any specialisation. Because it cannot be shared, each user would need their own copy.

Ideally, the footer could be put in each 'company' template in a shared folder.

Another possibility is to create a macro in a template in the Word Startup folder. GPO could, I'm sure, modify each user's  Startup folder setting to be a single one on a network share. It could ensure that the macro is loaded as an add-in.

It would only show in new documents created from the Normal template.

Good.That means that you do have the 'Update before Printing' option set.

Otherwise you can press F9. Then all fields in the Selection are updated, so Ctrl+A, F9 will update all fields in the current view.
