Adding chapter name and number to header in word

I have a large report, and I want to include the chapter name in the header of my document, but only on even pages.  The chapter name should be right aligned, and the page number should be on the inside of the page.

My chapter names are style heading 1.  My abstract heading (and a couple of other preliminary sections) are also of type heading 1, except I do not want these preliminary headings to appear as chapters in the header.  The more complex header should start at the table of contents.

Finally, I have a numbered list set up as heading 5.  This number corresponds to the chapter number (starting at the table of contents).  I would like to include this number in the header as well.

Any tips, or links to information that would help me would be appreciated.

Create section breaks where you want the headers to change. (Create the section breaks at the end of the previous page to break at the next page.)

Change the header footer to Odd or Even pages as you wish.
