Using Master Pages

I've created a Master Page A and applied it to all 50 pages in the document. Now I want to click on each page and add text unique to that page. However, when I add text to one page, it applies it to all 50. I am not editing the master. Why can't I use a master to put the same design on each page and then give each page it's own unique text?

 

Thanks!

Laura

You don't add "unique" text for each document page to the Master page (if I understand your question correctly) only text, such as a folio.
