Print page number on the report

Software: MoneyWorks accounting software

By default, MoneyWorks product name and page number print at the report footer when the print page option has selected during printing, such as ‘MoneyWorks Gold – Page 1″ if you are using MoneyWorks Gold. You cannot remove the product name from the option, but you can customise the report if you prefer not to show ‘MoneyWorks Gold’ in front of the page number.

Default page number

Unlike custom template, which the page field is available in the form designer. To customise the report, add a Remark row at the top of the report. Then, use a cell within the Remarks row (for calculation purpose) and enter:

ident: pagenum
value: =0
Format: 0,-0

pagenum field

Note: ‘pagenum’ is a field name, you can replace with any preferred name.

Next, at the bottom of the report, add a Heading row after the Page Break row (or before the last End If row of the Ledger report) and set it as Running Footer, and then enter the formula in a Cell (your preferred location) within the row:

ident: pagenum
value: = pagenum+1
Format: 0,-0

If you prefer to print as Page 1 instead of 1 alone, then add a “page” text in a cell before the pagenum cell or add a username field if you want to print the name of the user who has prepared the report.

Save the custom report in the Custom Plug-ins folder and remember to sign (give access right) and upload to the Datacentre server or MoneyWorks Now (Cloud-based MoneyWorks accounting software) if you are in a multi-user environment.

Contact your MoneyWorks consultant if you have a problem customising the report.
