    I use Word 2002 and need a document with a header on page one, but not on page 2. As advised I use View>Header and Footer>, and then click Layout on the toolbar. As instructed I click Different first page. I've made a template with this header but documents created with this template still have the header on the second page.
    I've also tried recreating the document template from scratch and replacing the original, but the same problem reappears.
    I attached a zipped copy of this template.
    I would warmly appreciate any suggestions.

    Stephen.

    You may be neglecting one extra step. If you choose to have a different header on the first page only, you will need to set up the first page and then the other pages. You may need to go to page two, select Header and Footer and blank out the information for the remaining pages to create a blank header. Then your check in "Different First Page" will use the page one data on the first page only.

    There's a good (but old) tutorial here.

    Hi JDL,
    Yes; that seems to have done the trick. Thanks for your info and I'll have a look at that tutorial.
    Thanks again.
    Stephen.
