Thanks for taking the trouble to offer help.
Perhaps if I describe my 'case' it will help to see where I am coming
from. I wanted to define a header for each page that is either a
copy of the previous header or a new one.
The application in my current case is collection of handwritten court
papers (from 1813) that I want to transcribe. The originals are in
jpeg. Some are just single sheets, some sheets are left and right pages
together, some are just snippets. Obviously the order is
important, and the source names of the jpeg files serve very well as a
header that should not of itself belong the the transcription text.
hence my simple requirement.
It was a deliberate choice to try to use the header feature (rather
than headings within the body of the text) because it made sense to me
to keep the metadata (i.e. file names of each sheet) separate from the
actual content of each sheet. In the end, I would have a complete LO
text document in which each page was headed with the file name to
identify its source and a page full of text showing the textual content
of each sheet. The resulting document would evidently contain 29 pages
with about 20 different headers.
I was expecting some simple implementation but, to my surprise, did not
find such. In the meantime Remy has made a suggestion that show how
much more complex it could be, than expected.

What do you mean by "describe"? There exists some variables like
number and text, that will adapt automatically to the content of the

of each page to copy (or not) the header of the previous page. How
mistaken could I be?!!
