Ive just emailed a document to a friend who when he opened it on his mac says its showing header and footer details that I have deleated on my windows desk pc. How do I fully remove these items that the mac picks up as using windows I cant see them anymore to get rid of them ?

Is this a Word document? if so then what version Word are you using?

How did you delete the header and footer details? (What did you do)

Did you re-save the document with your changes before you emailed it? (he may have been able to undo your changes or the emailed doc was the unchanged version)

You could also check what info is saved within the 'Properties' of the document. (In word 2003, Properties is on File menu)

If you deleted any information (that you had previously put in) in the headers and footers and then saved the document, and then emailed it there wouldn't have been any info in the headers and footers for him to see.. Had you previously put information in the headers and footers? Headers & Footers microsoft.com

That's very strange. Have you asked him to email the document back to you so you can see what the headers and footers show for you?
