How do I write the header name and page number together in Microsoft Word 2013?
By header do you mean the title of your document or a heading within the document? Either way if you use styles this is a very easy task with field codes. In Word page numbers are the result of a page field code. To have Word automatically insert the content of a particular named style you can use the styleref field code. If this field code is included in a page header the header will change automatically as pages have new content using the referenced style. For example you could use it to display the chapter name with the page number at the top of each page or use two styleref field codes to include the chapter name and the current subheading (as is often done in manuals). The big advantage of this approach is that you don need to alter the headers if edits change the content of a referenced style; the header always displays the current content. For your question let assume your document begins with a title set with the Heading 1 style (Ctrl-Alt-1 will apply the style for you). You want to have it included in a page header with the page number on all pages after the first one as in the screen shot below. Here how to do it. Open the Page Setup dialog (Layout tab bottom right of Page setup group or italic double-click the vertical ruler) and in the Layout tab turn on the Different first page checkbox. This will allow you to have headers on all pages except italic the first one. From the Insert ribbon Text group click Quick Parts Field to bring up the Field dialog. Scroll down the field name list to select StyleRef. From the Field properties list select Heading 1 and click OK. The content of your Heading 1 will appear. In my example I added space-dash-space before the page number but you could use spaces a colon or other elements as a separator. To insert the page number press Shift-Alt-P. This shortcut sequence inserts the page field code but youll see it as the current page number. To see how the StyleRef field code works make an edit to the content of your Heading 1 and use File Print to preview the pages. The edit will appear in the page header. Tip I always rmend turning on field shading to show when content is being inserted by a field code (rather than just being d). In addition to elements like page numbers and the style reference example here Word table of contents index and cross references all use field codes and being able to see that their content is generated makes it more obvious that it can be edited like normal . To turn on field code shading use File Options Advanced Show document content and set Field shading to Always. This will add a light grey shading behind any content that is the result of a field code. The grey won print; it is just shown on the screen display. You can toggle between the field codes and their results by pressing Alt-F9. Field codes are always enclosed within braces as shown below.
