I need to create my document without header only for chapter pages, but footer is same for all pages...what I need to do for that?

I used \usepackage{fancyhdr} and


\lfoot{Department cdo}

If you use a KOMA-class, chapter pages have the pagestyle \chapterpagestyle which can be modified. – Marco Daniel Mar 8 '13 at 16:08

The standard way would be this one. With \leftmark you refer to the current chapter title. Since you're using 12pt type, also the \headheight needs to be adjusted.


\fancyhf{}                    % clear all fields
\fancyhead[R]{\leftmark}      % right header
\fancyfoot[L]{Department cdo} % left footer
\fancyfoot[R]{\thepage}       % right footer

\fancypagestyle{plain}{% chapter pages use style plain
  \renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0pt} % no top rule
  \fancyhf{}%                    clear all fields
  \fancyfoot[L]{Department cdo}% left footer
  \fancyfoot[R]{\thepage}%       right footer

\usepackage{lipsum} % mock text


If you want to change the font size in the footer, just use something like

\fancyfoot[L]{\footnotesize Department cdo} % left footer
\fancyfoot[R]{\footnotesize \thepage}       % right footer

in both places.
