Summary 
It is common for a user to have different page headers or footers for some pages. This article should provide an information on how to achieve the objective.

1. Create a header and footer for our first section of our page. This would automatically turn all your pages to have header and footer to what you will select if you currently have more than one.



2. You should be able to result when you did the first step, screenshot may be different based on the header or footer template you selected.




3. To let Microsoft Word know that you will now have a different page section you have to click on Page Layout tab and select breaks and click on Next Page



4. This will create a duplicate page based on the template of the previous page but with Microsoft Word knowing that this will now be a different type of section.

5. Double click on the header of the new page that was created and you should see that the footer section of the first page is labeled as Section 1 and the header section of the second page is labeled as Section 2.




6. Click on the Design contextual tab (Green) and un-toggle the Link to Previous Button.



7. Once you un-toggle the button, Microsoft word will now know that it should not affect the previous header and footer template for the first page. Note that you have to do this too on the footer of the current page and execute step 6 again.

8. You can now go back to the Insert tab and change the design for your Section 2's header and footer template.

9. The result now should look like this
