Multiple Headers on Printed Page

Hi all,

Still working on this 70 Project consolidation project that a number of you have been assisting with recently.

The end result of the Consolidation file is a printed report of 12 pages of A3 landscape; sounds horrendous I know but that's the way it is wanted.

The report is split into 3 sections; Equipment, Support and Consultants; each section has exactly the same rows and columns because it is the same 70 projects repeated in each section and consists of 4 pages per section. The sections are determined by Page Breaks inserted at the relevant places.

On the printed report I have the header row repeated so that all pages get the same headers.

I would like to find a way of repeating a Section Header for each of the 3 sections. At the minute I just have the relevant section header in the first row of each section but this does not get repeated; it is only on the first page of each section.

As a workaround I have put page numbers in the central footer and a section of text in the left footer with "Pages 1 to 4 - Support, Pages 5 to 8 - Equipment, Pages 9 to 12 - Consult" but this will need amending if the page numbers change.

As always, much appreciated.

Thanks

Doesn't look like this is going to be possible. I will just have to live with the page footer details.

Thanks

Sample of report sheet attached with all data removed but page breaks etc left in.

Column B project names, with Support, Equipment and Consultant header in rows 5, 296 & 587
Dark blue rows - individual projects
Pale Blue rows - grouped projects
Pink Rows - subtotal of grouped projects
Each project has 3 rows for Capital, Resource or Inventory.

Rows where blank in cols A to H, subtotals for section above; 3 rows per subtotal to match the 3 rows per project.

Bottom of each section has Subtotal for whole section and then page 4 has multiple rows for older projects that are kept in the report for reference but don't need to be included in totals.

Hope that all makes sense.

Thanks
Rob

Try moving each type Support, Equipment and Consultant to individual sheets.
Select the rows to be repeated.
Select all sheets and print.

Has to be all on one sheet for links to a higher level consolidator.

Then I don't see any other method than inserting the type header where the page beaks are.
Does the layout change frequently since you haven't done that.
Or must not be there for some other reason, the consolidator perhaps.
It could be inserted by VBA if the logic is known (at the page break perhaps) and removed again after print.
