The following code example adds a Next page section break to the document and then adds a Bookmark control with text to the even page header of section 1. The code then uses NextStoryRange to add text to the header of section 2.

This example is for a document-level customization.

private void BookmarkNextStoryRange()
    int WordTrue = -1;
    object BreakType = Word.WdBreakType.wdSectionBreakNextPage;
    this.Paragraphs[1].Range.InsertBreak(ref BreakType);

    this.PageSetup.OddAndEvenPagesHeaderFooter = WordTrue;

    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.Bookmark bookmark1 =
    bookmark1.Text = "Even Header 1";
        .LinkToPrevious = false;

    bookmark1.NextStoryRange.Text = "Even Header 2";
