So please let us know if there is any way to get the information for header and footer and remove it from the section of word document.
Please let us know if any solution is possible. It is very helpful for us.


Thanks for your inquiry. Sure, you can try specifying how headers and footers are output to HTML, MHTML or EPUB formats by using the following code snippet:

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "HeaderFooter.RemoveFooters.doc");

HtmlSaveOptions saveOptions = new HtmlSaveOptions(SaveFormat.Html);
// Disables exporting headers and footers.
saveOptions.ExportHeadersFootersMode = ExportHeadersFootersMode.None;

doc.Save(MyDir + "HeaderFooter.DisableHeadersFooters Out.html", saveOptions);

Moreover, the default value of HtmlSaveOptions.ExportHeadersFootersMode property is PerSection for HTML/MHTML and None for EPUB.

I hope, this will help.

Hi Samanvay,

Thanks for your inquiry. Please follow up the code snippet to check header and footer:

private static void ProcessDocument(Document doc)
    bool containsHeaderFooter = false;
    foreach (Section sec in doc)
        if (sec.HeadersFooters.Count > 0)
            containsHeaderFooter = true;

I hope this will help.
