Headers (and footers) are a property of page styles. If you want a
header on some parts of your document but not on others - or headers
with different contents - then you need different page styles for those
parts. You could create your own styles if necessary, of course, but
you may find that the standard First Page and Default page styles will
o Go to Format | Styles and Formatting (or use the Styles and Formatting
button in the Formatting toolbar, or press F11).
o Click the Page Styles button.
o With the cursor in the first page of your text, double-click the
required page style - probably First Page.
Since your text will presumably flow naturally across from the first
page to the second, you will need the change of page style to occur at
that point, wherever in the text that happens to be. You do this by
defining a Next Style on the Organizer tab of the first page style - and
you will see that First Page's Next Style is already set to Default, so
that has been taken care of. Default's Next Style is Default, so your
first page has First Page page style and all other pages will have
Default page style.
(There is another method which suits different cases. Where there is a
clear separation between the material that must occur on the first and
second pages, you will anyway wish to insert a manual page break at this
point. And you can make the change in page style explicit at that point.)
Also how do I keep numbering in footer correct?
What's the problem? It's only when you want the page numbering *not* to
follow on normally that you need to tinker.
I trust this helps.
