    Headers and footers do not work the same way in v4.x versions. These versions use a new template based approach. Modifying the .dat file will have no effect on the report because report data is no longer in the Edit window and the .dat files only control headers and footers in the Edit window.

    If you want a footer in your Report window, you will need to create a label template with the information you want to display. You can call the same data that .dat file used to call, but you will need to use Report expressions instead of .dat keywords:
    Code:
    .DAT # Keyword        Equivalent Command in Template
    #DATE   . . . . . . . . =SYSTEMDATE("MMMM dd, yyyy")
    #TIME   . . . . . . . . =SYSTEMTIME("HH:mm")
    #PAGE   . . . . . . . . =Page()
    #TRn    . . . . . . . . =TRACEFIELD(n)
    #PARTN  . . . . . . . . =PARTNAME()
    #DRWN   . . . . . . . . =REVNUM() 
    #SERIALN  . . . . . . . =SERNUM()
    #SEQUENCE . . . . . . .  (Not applicable)
    #SHRINK . . . . . . . . =MEASSCALE()
    #NMEAS  . . . . . . . . =NUMMEAS()
    #NOUT   . . . . . . . . =NUMOUTTOL()
    #ELAPSTIM   . . . . . . =ELAPSEDTIME()
    #BMP=bitmappath . . . .  (Use Bitmap Object)
    
    Once your label template is completed, modify the rules for your Report template to have it pull in your newy created footer label template. Consult the help file for how to do all this.

    Edit: I created a footer template showing how to do this located on the WAI website.

      That was very helpful Jared. The next time I'm brave enough to run 4.1 or even braver to install 4.2, I will have to try and figure that one out. Thank you...
