Date, Time, and Page Number
The Report Options frame allows you to specify whether or not, and in what format, you want the date, time, and page numbers to appear in your report. By default, RBF automatically places the date and time in the report and page headers and the page number in the page footer. These fields do not display on the screen when you are creating a report specification. However, they do appear on the report when it is run. If you delete these report sections, this information will not appear on your report.
When you run a report including the date or time, RBF takes the date and time from your computer's operating system. If your system's date and time are incorrect, the report date and time will also be incorrect.
The report reflects the date and time when data is taken from the database, not when the report specification was created. When you send a report to a file for future printing, the date and time on the report reflect when you take the data from the database rather than when you send the report to the printer.
For more information, see Date, Time, and Page Components in the chapter "Working with RBF Report Specifications."
