In the custom footer, left section, I put the range name there [ModelVersion], but it didn't work.  Any idea?

jjxia2001,

Excel Header and Footer does not support formula. Which means you cannot simply type in =A10 or =B1 as the header.

One way to do it is to use a vba WorkBook event, BeforePrint. The VBA code has to be under the ThisWorkbook.

To get to the ThisWorkbook VBA code, press Alt-F11 to open up VBA Editor. Then press Ctrl-R to open up the Project Explorer.

On the left, in the Project Explorer, look for the group with the filename of the file you are working on. Under there, you should see some sheets names, and a ThisWorkbook.

Double click to open it, and paste in the following code to test.

Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)
Dim WS As Worksheet
For Each WS In Worksheets
    WS.PageSetup.LeftFooter = ThisWorkbook.FullName & " " & Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A2").Value
Next WS
End Sub

Open in new window


This code would set the Left Page Foot to the Name of the Sheet + the value in Sheet1 Cell A2.
