Default How do I insert new section numbers in the header?

Please help, i've been scratching my head all morning and cannot figure this
out. I have a 30 page document with approx. 8 sections.
Within the header I want to type in the Section No. for that particular
section and then insert page numbers 1 to (however many pages there are in
the section).
Eg:-
Date:
Issue:
Section: 1
Page: 1 of section (1/2/3)

Hi Sarah,

You need to insert fields. The last two lines of your example, when field
codes are displayed (press Alt+F9 to toggle field codes on and off), should
look like this:

Section: {SECTION}
Page: {PAGE} of {SECTIONPAGES}

You'll also need to restart page numbering in each section. Click the Format
Page Number button on the Header/Footer toolbar and change the Start At box
to 1.
