Default Header & Footer not on first page but on subsequent pages

My understanding is that when you want to insert a header that will not
appear on the first page but will on all subsequent pages all you need to do
is: click on view / header - type header on first page / click on page
setup on header toolbar / click on layout tab / click on different first page
/ apply to whole document / click OK Then the header will appear on page
2 and on subsequent pages but not on page one. However, when I did this in a
template I have for work it showed up on all pages. If I pulled up a new
template and tried it again it worked. Is there a better way to set these up
and is this some type of problem in Word 2003 that causes this to happen
intermitently.

Your understanding is correct. I can't see why your method wouldn't work
unless you have copied the Header content into the First Page Header.

You have to uncheck the same as previous checkbox in the header toolbar.
However to avoid sections you could simply use a conditional field eg
{If {page} 1 "Put your header here" }

No section break is involved here, so Same as Previous is irrelevant. The OP
is using the "Different first page" setting.

This is not a known intermittent problem in Word. It is probably directly
related to how your template is set up. Take a look at: How to set up
letterhead or some other document where you want one header on the first
page and a different header on other pages.
http://www.addbalance.com/word/headersfooters.htm This gives step-by-step
instructions.

I am doing this correctly and it has worked fine int the past. It was this
one time trying to put a header on all pages but the first, even with the
check on "Different First Page" the header showed on the first page as well.
It was weird. Pulled up a blank template and tried it, worked fine. Just
not on the template, identical to the blank, I was wokring in at the time.
Had to go to the second page and try the header there with the different
first page check, then it worked. If I copied what I typed to the same but
new (blank) template it worked fine. Strange. That is why I asked the
question regarding an intermitent problem with the header feature. I know
that this is true with the autotext auto correct feature when expecting it to
always popup with a suggestion 100% of a time. I use F3 now, which works
much better.

Somehow, as Suzanne pointed out, you have duplicated the contents of you
"header" into the "first-page header." Call up your template and delete the
contents of your first-page header.

If this doesn't do it, you have an errant continuous section break on your
first page somewhere.

I am sorry, I do not understand what you mean by duplicating the contents of
your header into the first page header. Do you mean that the header was
typed in twice on the first page. Say once in the begining, then after
selecting different first page, retyping the header in the first page
again??? I am not sure what you mean, please explain so I can figure out
what happened.

I tried this already and it deleted the headers on all pages. In this
template, I had to type it on the second page and select different first page
for it to work. Again, if I pulled up a new template, it worked as expected.
If it happens again I will try and determine what exactly is going on, but

If it deleted the header on all pages then either it wasn't the First Page

Sue, let me make sure I am understanding you correctly. If I type a header
in the first page header section it should appear as a header on all pages
unless I have checked different first page. Now in my scenario, I had done
this and the header still appeared on the first page. Deleted it in the
first page and all headers were deleted as if the different first page was
not checked. If the different first page option is not checked, whenever the
header is deleted on any page, all headers are deleted. I thought this was
normal behavior for headers and footers.

Again, this sounds to me like you have a section break in your first page.

If you have enabled "Different first page," then the header on the first
page is the First Page Header, which you must leave blank. If deleting
content from the First Page Header is deleting content from the headers on
subsequent pages, then they are also (linked) First Page Headers, which
means that you must have section breaks between your pages (the First Page
Header is, by default, repeated on the first page of each section). This
would be expected in, for example, a letter-type mail merge, where each
letter is created as a separate section.

If you like, you can send me a *small* sample of the problem document, and
I'll take a look at it.

Sue, that would be great except for one thing. Once I had accomplished what
I wanted by following the same procedure on the second page, it worked and I
cannot reproduce it on this template. What i will do is email you if it
happens again before fooling with it to see if you can determine what's up.
If it does not happen again then it was some random thing that is not worth
any more trouble. Thanks again, and I will let you know if it occurs again.
