Access VBA Create Word Header on Each Page

I'm using the following code and would like to create a Word header on each page. Thoughts?


Function Export2DOC(sQuery As String)
    Dim oWord           As Object
    Dim oWordDoc        As Object
    Dim oWordTbl        As Object
    Dim bWordOpened     As Boolean
    Dim db              As DAO.Database
    Dim rs              As DAO.Recordset
    Dim iCols           As Integer
    Dim iRecCount       As Integer
    Dim iFldCount       As Integer
    Dim i               As Integer
    Dim j               As Integer
    Const wdPrintView = 3
    Const wdWord9TableBehavior = 1
    Const wdAutoFitFixed = 0
 
 
    'Start Word
   On Error Resume Next
    Set oWord = GetObject("Word.Application")    'Bind to existing instance of Word
 
    If Err.Number <> 0 Then    'Could not get instance of Word, so create a new one
        Err.Clear
        On Error GoTo Error_Handler
        Set oWord = CreateObject("Word.application")
        bWordOpened = False
    Else    'Word was already running
        bWordOpened = True
    End If
    On Error GoTo Error_Handler
    oWord.Visible = False   'Keep Word hidden until we are done with our manipulation
    Set oWordDoc = oWord.Documents.Add   'Start a new document
 
    'Open our SQL Statement, Table, Query
    Set db = CurrentDb
    Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("tblSearch")
    With rs
        If .RecordCount <> 0 Then
            .MoveLast   'Ensure proper count
            iRecCount = .RecordCount + 1    'Number of records returned by the table/query
            .MoveFirst
            iFldCount = .Fields.Count   'Number of fields/columns returned by the table/query
 
            oWord.ActiveWindow.View.Type = wdPrintView 'Switch to print preview mode (not req&#39;d just a personal preference)

Is this a duplicate of this (solved) question Access VBA Add Column Heading to All Word Page?

No - I want to add a Word Header to each page not column headings as in the previous post. The text in the header = " Appendix of Appeals"

Sorry, didn't read through the whole question.

If you want to add a header try this.
oWordDoc.Sections(1).Headers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).Range.Text = "Appendix of Appeals"

10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

Did you know that ransomware is the most widespread, destructive malware in the world today? It accounts for 39% of all security breaches, with ransomware gangsters projected to make $11.5B in profits from online extortion by 2019.

for your codes, you should apply instead, like:

With oWord.ActiveDocument.Sections(1).Headers(1).Range
                .Text = "Appendix of Appeals"
                .Font.Italic = True
                .Paragraphs.Alignment = 2 'Align Right
            End With

I was wondering if early or late binding was being used and was going to substitute wdHeaderFooterPrimary with it's value but earlier in the code Word VBA constants are being used, for example.
 oWord.ActiveWindow.View.Type = wdPrintView

yes Norie, so in this case, if we're not adding a reference of Microsoft Word Object library, then we shall define a Constant for wdHeaderFooterPrimary if we wish to use it in the codes.
