As part of a gui front end that I developed to search an MS Word Document for errors against a master list, I am trying to use the Apache POI HeaderStories getFooter() method to return the footer (unique) of each page of an (n) page document where errors are found.

The API says that by passing the page number to the method, I can target that specific page's footer.Instead I only get the footer of the very last page regardless of what number I pass in. This is my first exposure to Apache poi HWPF. Can you shed some light on what I am doing wrong?
