Adding Date, Time, and Page Number to the Footer of the Pages in Bold Reports


Users can enhance the quality of their reports by including the current date, time, and page number. This provides readers with up-to-date information, which is especially valuable for time-sensitive reports like daily sales reports, event summaries, or real-time analytics. Moreover, including the page number allows readers to easily navigate multi-page documents, reference specific pages, cite information, or find relevant sections quickly.

To implement these features, follow the step-by-step guide below:

  1. Drag and drop a textbox report item into the footer area of the report.


  2. Right-click the textbox, select Expression for the textbox, and use the following expressions to display the current date and time in the textbox.



  3. Use the following expression to show the page number of the report in the footer.

    ="Page "&Globals!PageNumber &" / "&Globals!TotalPages


  4. After applying the expression in the textbox, click the preview button to see the output.


  5. Click here to download the sample report.
