I cant seem to get that to work.  Can you explain the steps to achieve a header only on page 1 and footer on every page?

Thx.

From the menu: File/Page Setup, Layout tab, tick the 'Different first page' checkbox.

Use the  Header and Footer view to see and edit the different headers

That's what I had tried initially, but it made the header disappear on the first page.

That is because your current one is the 'Prime' header, which is the default. If you need it for the first page only, cut it from its current position and paste it into the blank First Page header.

Hi hedgeselect,

You must set the "File/Page Setup, Layout tab, tick the 'Different first page'" FIRST.

Then, go to the second page of the document and recopy the header to the FIRST PAGE header.

Finally, remove the header from the second page.

Any idea how I can add a header to page 12 out of 13.  I cant seem to get it to work again now for later pages in the document?

Thx.
