How to insert header/footer into specific pages in word?

Here we want to add specific page number/title/heading style into header/footer of word document. Let’s start!

We can eliminate/hide header from next page by :

Layout -> break -> next page

We can make first page a cover page or different by :

Header & Footer tools -> Options -> check “Different First Page”

and we could make different odd/even page’s header by :

Header & Footer tools -> Options -> check “Different Odd & Even Pages”

We could insert page number & specific heading for even & odd pages by :

1) Header & Footer tools -> Options -> check “Different Odd & Even Pages”
2) insert table in header (2 columns * 1 row)
In Right Cell (or as you wish) :
3) Header & Footer tools -> insert -> Document Info -> Field… -> styleRef -> Heading 1
In Left Cell (or as you wish) :
4) Header & Footer tools -> insert -> Document Info -> Field… -> Page
5) & Do same for odd/even page as you wish.

We could insert these information into Specific pages by “IF” statement by :

  1. Instead of the automatically added page numbers, press Ctrl+F9 to add the special brackets: {}
  2. Enter IF and then again click Ctrl+9 to add PAGE field to get the current page number: {IF{PAGE}}
  3. Enter <> (not equal) and then number of the page in quotes that you want to hide, in this example, “7” : {IF{PAGE}<>”7″}
  4. Add the text that you want to see for pages with number not equal 7 in quotes: {IF{PAGE}<>”7″ “Page{PAGE}”}
    You can add text for the page number 7 (Text if formula is FALSE) in quotes, if necessary.
  5. Format text in quotes if needed, for example: {IF{PAGE}<>”7″ “Page|{PAGE}”}
  6. Right-click on the field and choose Toggle Field Codes.
