Header Elements

Borings logs can contain header field values that display the value of single field contents in either the header or footer section of the boring log. For EQuIS users, the fields available for selection are listed in Tables and Fields used in Generating Full-Page Boring Logs. To add a header field from the template design window, either double-click one of the fields in the list entitled Header / Footer Data or select the field and drag it into place on the template page.

 

Once placed, the header field content format may be modified by double-clicking on the placed element or right-clicking on the element and selecting Edit to open the Text dialog box.
