Default Book formatting: need to alternate page number on left and right margin for only firs

Hello. Hope you are doing well.

I am formatting a book and have run into something that has me stumped.

Each chapter is it's own section and has the following:
EVEN pages = Header with Page number on Left margin & Book Title on Right margin
ODD pages = Header with Chapter Title on Left Margin & Page number on Right margin

The first page of each chapter has "CHAPTER" in bold, 28 pt font
For those pages there is no header
Page number is in the Footer

So, I have Different First Page checked &
Different Odd & Even Pages is checked

Here is my problem:
The first page of a chapter might be an Even number or an Odd number.
Currently, all first pages have the page number in the footer on the right margin.
This is bad for chapters starting on the even pages. Looks bad having the page number of a left hand page on the bottom, inside margin.

How do I tell Word "If the first page of a section is an even number then put the page number on the Left margin"?

Thanks. I appreciate any help.
