You may want to personalize your report by adding or changing a page element, such as a header, footer, margin, or border. Page elements allow you to insert your name, the project finish date, a design, and more on each page of your report. Let's add a few basic page elements to the Budget report.

  1. Click the Page Setup button on the toolbar.

    The Page tab of the Page Setup dialog box appears.

    You can work with a different element of the page under each tab in the dialog box. Let's add something to the header of this report.

  2. Click the Header tab.

    The current header displays information for the type of report being used, the current date, and the project manager in the center of the header.

    Let's add the company name to the left side of the header.

  3. Click the Left tab in the Alignment section.

    Currently, the left side of the header is empty.

  4. Click the General list arrow and select Company Name from the list. Click Add.

    The Company Name field is added to the header, as shown in Figure 11-3.

    Now, add something to the page footer.

  5. Click the Footer tab. Click the Center tab in the Alignment section.

    The current footer shows the current page number. Let's add a field for the total number of pages in the report.

  6. Click after the [Page] field. Type of and click the Insert Total Page Count button in the dialog box.

    The [Pages] field is added to the footer, as shown in Figure 11-4.

    Now see how the changes look in the actual report.

  7. Click OK.

    The dialog box closes, and the header and footer changes appear in the report.

  8. Click the Close button.

    The report closes. The changes you made are saved for the next time you view the project in that report.

    We didn't get to all the tabs in the Page Setup dialog box, but the other tabs are also very useful in formatting your project report. See Table 11-2 to find out what each tab is used for.
