Exporting Crystal Report data to the Excel Print Headers


Hello everyone. I am trying to do something with Excel headers that is a little more advanced than the usual. I have multiple reports that are designed to export to Excel. Normally I only export a report header. However, I have a customer who wants a label to appear in each page header and footer in Excel. Here is the catch - they want the label to appear in the Excel print header and footer, not just on the main excel page. The label contains an SBU marking, so there is a requirement that it gets printed on every page.

If you are not familiar with the print header, it is a separate section of an Excel document that appears when you print the excel document. For this operation, I don't think I can use the built-in Crystal Export options. I have tried to Export to Microsoft Excel and I can send the page header and footer to the Excel data sheet, but not to the print header/footer.

Thanks for your help!
