Everything you add on the first page of your report layout will be repeated on the following pages – unless you specify that is shouldn’t. More about that, when we look into repeater pages.
Page headers and footers would typically be added as Layout boxes with text, dynamic content or images.
In this example, we are using the Caption and Subcaption fields of a text box to design the report header:
The Subcaption is made up from a mix of fixed text together with dynamic text.
The dynamic content dialog offers a number of System variables that may be quite useful for report headers or footers:
To add an image, e.g. a company logo, you will also start out with a Layout object, which you will then turn into the Image layout type and then add the image from a file browser.
The report’s header and footer may eventually become something like this:
In the footer, two text boxes have been used – one with a criteria explanation dynamic element, and the other with page and page total dynamic elements.
