    1. On the View menu, click Header and Footer
    2. You should see a little tool bar appear in the middle of your document – the Header/Footer tool bar. Click the page with the two boxes on it (one at the top, one at the bottom) – that will toggle you between the header and the footer.
    3. Click in the {PAGE} thing, wherever it is (header or footer).
    4. Right-click and select Toggle Field Codes. That should let you see what’s in the field code, instead of the code itself.
