About headers, footers, and legends in Project

To make your printed Microsoft Office Project 2003 pages look more professional and useful, you can add information such as your company name or logo, page numbers, date and time, a file name, or project-specific information to the header (header: Text that appears at the top of a printed page. A header typically contains information such as the project or company name and the project start and finish dates.) or footer (footer: Text that appears at the bottom of a printed page. A footer typically contains information such as page number, total page count, and date.) of a printed view (view: The combination of one or more views [Gantt Chart, Resource Sheet, and so on] and if applicable, a table and a filter. Use views to work with information in a variety of formats. There are three types of views: Charts or graphs, Sheets, and Forms.) or report (report: A format in which you can print schedule information that is appropriate for the intended recipients. You can use the predefined reports provided by Project or create custom reports.). You can also add information to a project's legend (legend: The explanatory list of symbols printed on a chart or graph.).

By default, the legend appears on every page of a printed Calendar, Gantt Chart, or Network Diagram view. But you can choose not to print the legend at all, or to print it on every page or a separate page.

Headers and footers are view-specific and report-specific; legends are view-specific only. If you type or insert information into the header, footer, or legend of the Gantt Chart view, this information does not appear in the Network Diagram view.
