along with their content, on each page. The header itself does not need to encroach on your
page text area, as you can adjust some combination of the header height, the header spacing,
and the top margin of the page to remove its effect on the final appearance.

You can create an identical table around them or you can choose to copy the first page to
the second, amending the variable text as necessary. To avoid needing to delete or replace
the variable text, you could choose to copy the first page to a second (and so on, similarly),
before you added the variable text to the first (and each) page.

As I recollect, you said that your frame content was invariant from page to page. If you wish
it to change, or to change after a number of pages, make another page style identical in format
but of different name. Header/Footer information, which your frames are by virtue of their
anchoring in the Header/Footer, is a Page Style property.
