So the two circled values are exactly the same. the next screenshot shows the values in preview mode:-
and allthough the value appears correctly at the top, it does not appear in the footer, and neither do the other 3 values (which do appear if they are moved to the body or footer). can anybody suggest what I am doing wrong ? thanks
In a list view layout with multiple records, the "rules" for what shows in fields placed in a header/footer change when you enter preview mode or try to print from the layout.
In Browse mode, a field will show data from the context of the current record in both header and footer.
In Preview Mode, a field in the header will show data from the first record on the page while the footer will show data from the last record on the page.
Thanks - just experimented with your response and what you say is correct. However, how can I get the correct values in footer and header simultaneously ? The only way I can think of doing it currently is to write a script that puts the informations global field but that seems rather convoluted
