Please explain how I can now add a header to page 12 of 13 when a header is already on just page 1.

Thx.

Y can have different headers on different pages by dividing your document into sections using Insert > Break > Section Break.

On the first page of the 2nd section, you have the choice of using the same header from the previous section, or using a different one. Once you make your selection, the header of all pages in that section will use the header you chose.

So in your example, you'd have a section break at the bottom of page 11, and another at the bottom pf page 12. You would then set your header just for page 12 since it is it's own section.

In order to do this you must create a new section at the beginning of page 12. The header you now add here will ONLY appear on page 12, since you have already indicated 'Different first page' in the previous section.

Just to note that, when you create a new section, its headers and footers (first page, prime and even page) will automatically be linked to, and hence the same as, those of the previous section. You will have to use the 'Link to Previous' button on the 'Header and Footer' toolbar to make them independent header and footer sets.

ragnarok89,
ok that seems to work.  Problem I now have is  that I have my page numbers centred at the bottom in the header, but I also need to enter the name of the document in the left justified.  How can I enter text to the left whilst centre justifying the page numbers because it seems one or non?  I tried using the tab to centre the page number but its not quite the same as centre justifying.

Actually I think I have sorted the margin issue, just used the ruler thing to centre the tabs.
