How can I change the header and footer for reports, such as FlexTable reports or the plan view of the model?


  1. Go to Report > Report Options
  2. Click the header or footer tab depending on what you'd like to change

  3. In the cells, choose one of the available functions. For example if you want to insert the Project Engineer (as define under File > Info), choose "%(ProjEngineer). If you want the name of the active scenario to appear, choose "%(ActiveScenarioLabel).

  4. You can also simply type in text in a cell (instead of selecting a function) and that text will appear in the header/footer.

  5. Click OK and generate a print preview of your report (such as from a Flextable) to see the header and footer.
