I keyed in on the words permanent and new. This will take a custom template. You have to create and save the template yourself. This gives it a reusable (permanent) nature. When creating a new document, you create it from the saved template.

to create a template:
  • open a new document in the normal way
  • create your footer, and test print it (NOTE: select the page numbering style from the ribbon [insert tab>page number])
  • edit if necessary, and test print again until you have the desired results
  • click file, then save as
  • give it a descriptive name you will recognize like name-date-page footer in the file name box
  • click the down arrow on the right side of the save as type box
  • from the drop down menu, select Word Template (*.dotx)
  • click save
to create a new document using the template:
  • open a new document in the normal way
  • click file, then new
  • in the window which opens click My Templates
  • Select the template with the name you gave it with the instructions above
  • in the create new box at the lower right select document, and click OK
  • type your document
  • save in the normal way, using the extension of your choice (.doc, .docx., etc.) Do not save the document as a template, or the document will become another template.
PLEASE NOTE: If you use my method, you will have to manually enter the file name, path, and date for the first page. All subsequent pages will take duplicate this data. The page of page will automatically adjust its self with the addition of each new page.
