Part 7. Creating Reports > Adding Headers or Footers to a Report

Adding Headers or Footers to a Report

To resize a header, place the mouse pointer on the header section divider line, click, and drag.

The header section is resized. To add page numbers to a header or footer, first click in the header or footer. Then open the Insert menu and choose Page Numbers.

The Page Numbers dialog box opens. Select the desired Format, Position, and Alignment options, and click OK.

Page numbers are added to the header or footer. To add the date or time, click in the desired header or footer, open the Insert menu and choose Date and Time.

INTRODUCTION

You might want to include identifying labels on headers and footers because the page headers and footers print on every page. In addition to adding identifying labels, you can add other objects—such as page numbers—to the header or footer. Before you add items to your headers and footers, you may need to resize the header or footer section first. If you used AutoReport or the Report Wizard to create your report, headers and footers may already be added (you can delete them if you don't want them).


The Date and Time dialog box opens. Click the Include Date and/or Include Time check boxes to select them, and specify how the date/time should appear. Click OK.

The date/time is added to the header or footer you selected (here, to the Report header). Click the Save button on the Standard toolbar to save the report design.

To view the changes as they will appear when printed, preview the report. (For help previewing your report, see the task “Previewing a Report” later in this part.)
