How to Create a Different Header on Each Page

Many word processors give users the opportunity to enter information into a header. A header is the space on the top of a document where text and graphics can be inserted. Unless modified, the information in a header will be repeated on the top of every page. To create a different header on each page, the document will need to be divided into sections. Once the program recognizes each page as a different section, headers can be individualized on each page of the document.

Open your word processor and the document you wish to modify.

Click the "Page Layout" tab and click "Breaks." A drop-down menu will appear.

Step

Click "Link to Previous" to deselect this feature. Change the header as needed. Repeat these actions on every page of the document that requires an individualized header.
