Edit footers in Excel 2007 by using the Insert tab on the ribbon. When you're editing a footer, you can use the default footer templates that are included with Excel 2007. If you decide to create a custom footer, you can manually type the information in the three sections that are visible when you are creating headers and footers. The three sections give you access to the left, centre and right sections of the footer.
