Thanks, Remy. I think this could be close to the solution I am looking
for, but that means I have some 20 page styles for 29 pages of
document....but...OKIs the MS-Word solution patented? If not, could it
be implemented here?

The header is attached to the page style you are using. For a given
page style, the header will be the same. I think you are looking for
a function similat to MS-WORD where you can link consecutive headers
and footers to have them "copied" from one section to the other, when
pages are separated with section breaks. LO does not operate quite
like that: LO provides page styles that contain the complete
definition of what your page should look like, along with header and
footer. So, for a given page style, the header will be the same when
it is applied to a page, what ever the page is.
So, to have the same header on pages 1-5, use Page Style 1To have a
different header on page 6, use Page Style 2To have the same header
on pages 7-10 as on pages 1-5, apply Page Style 1 to those pagesEtc.
To quickly see the page style, look in the middle of the status bar
at the bottom of the screen. You can right-click to set the page
style for the current page (actually from the last manual page break
to the next one). If you want to insert a page break and jump on a
new style, then go to Insert -> Other Breaks > Manual Break and on
the dialog, select page break and set the name of the style you want
from the drop-down.
To create a new style, go Style -> Manage Styles and when the thing
opens on the right, go to page styles and create what you need (right
click on a style and then New...)
I hope this helps.

My intention was to use the header function to describe each page
of a29 page document separately, with a couple of exceptions where
twopages may have the same header.
I thought that it would just be a simple question of telling the
headerof each page to copy (or not) the header of the previous
page. Howmistaken could I be?!!
No matter what I tried, I was totally unable to find the trick for
sucha simple that I am beginning to question my
sanity. ;-)The final result was that the first header was all
right, but all thesubsequent headers oscillated between the one for
page 29 and page 26.J-)
I'm using LO on Linux.

So what's the trick? I am sure that other users have been down
asimilar path.
