Hi @mikamol,

You can install UiPath.Word.Activities package and use Word Application Scope activity or you can use Open Application activity. The idea is working with the open word document.

Use Get Full Text activity to read the text into the header and save the text into a string variable e.g. headerText

Use Type Into activity to write the header text with headerText.Replace("oldText","newText"). In properties you should mark EmptyField as True.

Okey, this solution is to overwritte the whole header text with the corresponding replacement, but it is an option.

I hope it helps you
