Hi,

   I was wondering what header / footer values are possible in an html report? If I am looking for all records related to a studentID and want to print it out, can I have the studentID and a title print out in the report?

Thanks

What an odd question!

There's no reason I know of you couldn't put any data you have access to in the header (or footer) of an HTML document.

I mean when printing out an HTML, to have that data repeat as header and footer  :)

You'd have to repeat the header and footer, but yes, it seems likely you can do what you want.

Using page breaks will allow you to statically introduce a particular text as header on every page and a number on the footer of every page. But the page number will be pre-determined or static. If I dont know in advance and am generating pages dynamically based on a query that returns a different number of rows each time, my number of pages will change over time and I can not use a page break. Is there a different way of using page breaks you were envisioning?

I don't know why page breaks would affect your extant page count, but the only other solution I can suggest is to generate a PDF or XPS file and display that in the browser.  

Anything else you do would - I believe - require you to operate under the assumption of a fixed page size.  If that's something that appeals to you, you can try using absolute values for your element placement and presume each page is of a particular height and width.
