Hello,

Love OO, but this problem is driving me nuts.

I have a 30 pg. document broken into 6 sections. I need to have the header look like such:

Part 1
Page 1

on the next page

Part 1
Page 2

then eventually....

Part 2
Page 1

And so on...

I've managed to break the document into sections and restart the page number in each one, but I can't figure out how to have the "part" number change as well.

Any advice? Thank you so much for your help.

Try Tutorial on Page styles and headers/footers.
If your sections are titled Section 1 - Section 6, you can assign the Heading 1 style to them and in Tools - Outline numbering link level 1 to Heading 1, then you can Insert - Fields - Other - Document tab, Chapter - Chapter title in the header. That field will auto-update.
If you don't use Section headings, you might get away with using variables or you will need 6 page styles, one per section.
