Different header, but same footer on last page of document

My document has 7 pages:

Page 1: first page with header and footer. Header is a logo and address. Footer is a legal tekst.

Page 2-6: header is only a logo on top and footer is the name of the doc and pagenumber

Page 7: is the one I would like to change. I want the header to be removed (this one succeeded after inserting a section break and change the header, BUT I would like the footer to be the same as the previous pages (NOT THE FIRST PAGE). So the doc name and the pagenumbers has to appear on the last page without the same header as the previous pages. 

Question: Is this possible? If so, how?

Thank you in advance.

In that Section of the document, uncheck the Different First Page box in the Options section of the Header & Footer Tools>Design tab of the ribbon.  Then, with the selection in the Header, click on the Link to Previous in the Navigation section of the ribbon so that you can delete the Header from that Section without affecting the Header in the previous Section.

Doug's reply is the correct approach if you really want or need a section break. If you don't, but just want to omit the header on the last page, there is another approach:

  1. After entering the content you want in the header on pages 2-6, select it and press Ctrl+X to copy it to the Clipboard.
  2. In the header, press Ctrl+F9 to insert a field.
  3. In the field (between the braces), type IF and a space.
  4. After the space press Alt+Shift+P to insert a { PAGE } field.
  5. Type a space and then < and another space.
  6. Press Ctrl+F9 to insert another field.
  7. In that field, type NUMPAGES and then place the insertion point outside the { NUMPAGES } field but still in the IF field.
  8. Type two quotation marks ("").
  9. Between the quotation marks paste the content from the Clipboard.
  10. Your resulting field will look like this:
    { IF { PAGE } < { NUMPAGES } "Content you want in the header" }
  11. Press F9 to update the field. You should now see the header on every page but the first and last.

The syntax of the IF field tells Word to print the header content if the page number is less than the number of pages.
