Suppress Headers and Footers

Yesterday I posed the question, how do you suppress headers and or footers on individual pages within a word document. I was given a couple of answers, but none worked. I could suppress the header but I also suppressed the footer (I did not want too). I appreciate the help, but its been to no avail. There has to be a way to do this. I am talking about random pages in a report that a header or footer needs to be suppressed. I  am going to try again. In Wordperfect  there is a button to do it, simple, but Word in another story. I am hoping for a solution. I have followed instructions and still not been able to accomplish what I need. I pull my hair out if I had any.

The basic rule for headers (and footers) are applied to each page, as defined at printing time. There are, basically two ways to be certain that individual pages have cerain headers (or footers). Firstly, you can divide the document with next page section breaks, wherever you need a header or footer to be different from the previous one, or you can embed the header or footer text in the true part of an IF field the tests the page number.

As I have already implied, Word starts with the presumption that  headers or footers are running text that is to appear on each page. This saves  the user from analysing the document minutely and adding a some text at the top or bottom of each page. Remember that pagination depends on the current printer driver, so the (soft) page breaks could appear at different places in different environments.

If pages are defined by manual (inserted) page breaks (or next page section breaks) and there is adequate space (under any printer) for each page so defined, then it would be possible to be sure of each page's number. Given that you could use the IF field solution that test's the page number

It  isn't clear how WordPerfect resolves the solution of different printer drivers, but however it is done, there is no chance of getting Word to work in the same way in time to suit your particular problem.

If I understand your question correctly, you can do this with section breaks and selective use of 'Same as Previous' in the header and footer sections.

See the attached example

I think that both grahamskan and I answered the question as raised. The points should at least be split
