Evaluating Footer "//", "::", and Merge Fields from stored Text Fields…
I would like to replace the standard footer Text field at the bottom of my reports with text stored in a Global Text field so I can dynamically change all footers in my DB without having to edit each one.
When I try to add the fields' text via a Merge Field, the text appears literally rather than being interpreted.
I would like the text within the field to be evaluated just like it is in a standard text element on a layout. The "//" Currennt Date, "::" Current Time, and the "<<Globals::Account_Name>>" merge field are showing up as:
"Printed on // at :: by <<Globals::Account_Name>>"
"Printed on 12/24/2010 at 10:30 AM by andrew-grant"
Any thoughts on how to get this to work?
