I assume you've already made the settings for "different first page"
for your headers and footers. Once you've inserted the heading for any
page, except the first page, in the section (or the whole doc, if it
has only one section) then you don't need to re-insert it for every
page. This is what your mail seems to say you're doing - no need for

I don't know what version of Word you're using, but if you've posted
the field's code verbatim, then the periods in the field code are
redundant. (Are those actually periods, or spaces shown as dots by the
reveal codes option?)

After you've inserted a field, select it and use F9 to update the
field, or close the document and re-open it, if it doesn't
automatically update.
