Each section in the document can have its own set of headers and footers. If no headers or footers are defined for a given section, the headers and footers from the previous section (if any) are used. The header (or footer) can be different for odd pages, even pages or the first page.
The following client commands are available for manipulating headers/footers programmatically. Call the commands in the notation given below:

To insert fields displaying a current page number or the total number of pages, use the Page Number and the Page Count ribbon commands (located in the ribbon's Insert tab in the Header & Footer group). You can also insert required field codes manually.
