Print: Header/Footer

On the Header/Footer tab you may specify settings for Header and Footer. Additional printout settings can be made on the other tabs.

The following buttons are used for inserting control codes for specific system information into any of the text panes. Control codes may also be typed directly:

Page Click this button or enter the code &[Page] to insert the page number.
Pages Click this button or enter the code &[Pages] to insert the total number of pages. The use of this option in reports with banding may cause long delays for calculation before printing can commence. You will therefore be warned when this situation occurs.

Time Click this button or enter the code &[Time] to insert the current time. Time format can be set in the Date & Time dialog.

Report Pressing this button or entering the code &[Report] causes the title of the report to be printed. This option is only available when printing reports.

The Header and Footer groups allow the above settings to three panes: Left section, Center section and Right section. Simply click in the desired pane to position the cursor and then click a button or type in the code.
