Default Add Page Numbers to Word Document Footer


I am trying to add page numbers to the footer of my report.

I want for it to appear as:

Text Page


The code I have is as follows:

 Dim currentFooter As HeaderFooter = oDoc.Sections(1).Footers(WdHeaderFooterIndex.wdHeaderFooterPrimary)

currentFooter.Range.InsertAfter(Today & "OMHSAS-MIS" & vbTab & vbTab & "Page ") 


currentFooter.Range.Fields.Add(currentFooter.Range, WdFieldType.wdFieldPage, True)
My problem is the page number replaces the text.

I would be very grateful for any help.

I don't have the knowledge of Word to guide You with. However, I guess You need to clear the footer first and then add the customized set up. The page number is probably the default value.
