Choose the "View" menu, and select "Headers and Footer." The "Header" page appears with the "Header and Footer" toolbar.
Click the cursor into the "Header" box, and type in the text you want to appear as a running head. You can use buttons on the toolbar to insert automatic text such as the date, time and page numbers. Format this information using the standard formatting menu options and buttons.
Click "Close" on the toolbar to return to the document. To view your headers, choose the "View" menu, and select "Print Layout." Your running heads appear on the top of every page.
Select the "File" menu and "Page Setup" to make different heads for the first, odd and even pages. The "Page Setup" dialogue appears.
Click the "Layout" tab, and then click "Different First Page" and "Different Odd and Even," depending on how you want the headers to different. Click "OK" to accept your changes.
Go to the first, odd-numbered or even-numbered page, and define a header by selecting the "Header" box and typing the text. The "Header" box now says "First Page Header," "Odd Page Header" or "Even Page Header." The text you create for those boxes apply only to those pages. Leaving the box blank prevents a header from appearing on that page.For example, you may want to use a blank header for the first title page, have the page number appear on the right for an odd-numbered page and place the page number on the left for an even-numbered page.
Page 1 should read in the Header box: bold: Running head: UNIT TWO REQUIRED ACTIVITIES AND ASSIGNMENTS the page number 1 should be right flush.
Page 2 and subsequent pages should read in the header box: in bold: UNIT TWO REQUIRED ACTIVITIES AND ASSIGNMENTS with the page number 2 (and on for the next pages) so pages 3, 4, and on should have the same header as page two and the appropriate numbering for those pages all flush right.
