You're very close.  You just have it anchored in the wrong
place.  If you want it in the sidehead area, anchor it there,
in a sidehead.  Make the sidehead format with no space
above or below, 2pt text size, and -2 pt leading, and set
its sidehead alignment to Top Edge. Anchor your frame in
it "Below Current Line".  There you are.

You might also consider using a one-celled table instead of
an anchored frame, as that will self-adjust to the amount
of content you put into it.  Anchor it the same way.

I'm sending you an example FM file separately, off-list.
Play with it, but remember to Refresh any time it looks
strange; it really does do what you want.
