inserting a field / title that appears the same throughout the document in both main body and header

This is hard to explain
I have a document with a cover sheet, in the main body of text on the cover sheet i would like to insert a subject / name (not in the header)
then, on the next page and all pages afterwards, i want that text to appear in a box in the header.  This is being used as a template ultimately so ideally i want the user to only be able to edit the cover sheet.

I hope that makes sense

Give the text a Style that is to be unique in your document. Create a new one from the particular style if you expect it to be used elsewhere.

Ensure that your document has more than one page (temporarily if necessary).

Double-click on the Header area to edit the header. Tick the Different First Page box on the Header & Footer Tools/Design tab. Navigate to the next header  - labelled Header and not First Page Header.

Insert a StyleRef field, choosing your unique style which should appear in the list.
