Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "Header and footer types.docx");

foreach (Section section in doc.OfType<Section>())
    // Up to three different footers are possible in a section (for first, even and odd pages)
    // We check and delete all of them
    HeaderFooter footer = section.HeadersFooters[HeaderFooterType.FooterFirst];

    // Primary footer is the footer used for odd pages
    footer = section.HeadersFooters[HeaderFooterType.FooterPrimary];

    footer = section.HeadersFooters[HeaderFooterType.FooterEven];

doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "HeaderFooter.RemoveFooters.docx");
Creates a header and footer using the document object model and insert them into a section.
Document doc = new Document();

HeaderFooter header = new HeaderFooter(doc, HeaderFooterType.HeaderPrimary);

Paragraph para = header.AppendParagraph("My header");


HeaderFooter footer = new HeaderFooter(doc, HeaderFooterType.FooterPrimary);

// Add a paragraph with text to the footer
para = footer.AppendParagraph("My footer");
