One way would be to define at least two page styles. One without headers, and one with headers. Then, just apply the page style to the appropriate pages. Just like this:

Headers or footers are a property of your Page Style. To put headers on just some pages requires a different page style for those pages. You can define different page styles before you use them in the Stylist.

To start a new page style which you have already defined do Insert > Manual Break > Page Break with a new style specified. To return to your default page style with no header do the same thing (or define it as the Next Style on the Organizer tab of the page style dialog while you are originally defining it).

Edit - I see we have two answers posted a minute apart. Taking advantage of both should get you where you want to go.

I'm just gratified that I've been hanging around here long enought to have picked stuff up from the OOo gurus like yourself, John!

maxqnz,

Thanks, I'm blushing. The real question is whether we have given the OP the answer without taking too big a step(s). That is always the problem - what is enough for one poster may just raise more questions for the next.

lyn,

If we went too fast just ask for more info.
