Change running header in mid chapter and then back again

My running header uses Heading2 paragraph text. Occasionally I have to force the Heading2 paragraph to the next page using a Heading2_Top_of_Page paragraph tag with a top of page pagination instead of a manual page break. I need to have the Heading2_Top_of_page represented  in the running header as well (either Heading2 or Heading2_Top_of_Page) but not both.

 

Is there a way to use both Heading2 and Heading2_Top_of_Page in the same variable in the same chapter but only have one or the other show when it is appropriate?

Thanks,

Robert

You should be able to put multiple paragraph format names in the variable; separate them with a comma.

Hi Robert:

 

I wrote this up in a different context here: https://www.rockymountaintraining.com/adobe-framemaker-even-smarter-running-heads/, but it shows the syntax (with the commas).

 

I'm going to mark Rick's answer as correct, but let us know if you have further questions.
