Headers Property

Returns a HeadersFooters collection that represents the headers for the specified section. Read-only.

For information about returning a single member of a collection, see Returning an Object from a Collection .


To return a HeadersFooters collection that represents the footers for the specified section, use the Footers property.


This example adds centered page numbers to every page in the active document except the first. (A separate header is created for the first page.)

With ActiveDocument.Sections(1).Headers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary)
    .PageNumbers.Add _
        PageNumberAlignment:=wdAlignPageNumberCenter, _
End With

This example adds text to the first-page header in the active document.

ActiveDocument.PageSetup.DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter = True
With ActiveDocument.Sections(1).Headers(wdHeaderFooterFirstPage)
    .Range.InsertAfter("First Page Text")
    .Range.Paragraphs.Alignment = wdAlignParagraphRight
End With
