How to add a header or footer to a report

Updated on September 20, 2019


Reports can include text headers and footers drawn from a section rule that you have previously created. This article shows you how to add a header or footer to a report.


Suggested Approach

    1. Create a section rule that contains the header and/or footer layout that you want to include in the report. The section rule has to be created in the same class (or parent classes) as the list view or summary view rule.

    1. Create or edit a list view or summary view.
    2. Open the Format tab.
    3. Under Section Settings in the Header and Footer fields, choose the section that you created in Step 1 from the dropdown list.

  1. Click the Save toolbar button .
  2. Click the Run toolbar button. The view displays the report with the new header.

    ...and the new footer.
