Hello,

We are running on an older version of the Reporting  2011 Q2 but need to user the native header features.

I have set the device information header variables (they work fine for grid lines) to true for UseNativePageHeader but the report is rendered with the header at the top of the page basically ignoring the variable.

Is there anything I am missing?

Hi Chris,

We've tested this locally and it works as expected, can you share what is the type of project you're using, where/how do you set the device settings and where do you export the report from? You can find more information on the expected behavior in the Design Considerations for Excel Rendering help topic, specifically the Page Headers and Footers section.

Kind regards,
Steve

I have tried setting it in both web.config and at run time.  In both cases, the grid pararmter works fine but the header and footer settings are disreguarded.

Here sample of my settings in web config;
Original Setting;
  <Extension name="XLS" visible="false"/>

Changed Setting;
  <Extension name="XLS" visible="false">
        <Parameters>
            <Parameter name="UseNativePageHeader" value="true"/>
            <Parameter name="UseNativePageFooter" value="false"/>
            <Parameter name="ShowGridlines" value="true"/>           
        </Parameters>
  </Extension>

As I have stated before the ShowGridLines setting works fine.

Thanks
