The FOOTING keyword defines a page footing for the report. The synonym FOOTER may be used.
A page footing defined with the FOOTING keyword will appear at the bottom of each page of the report. The footing text may contain control codes enclosed in single quotes to insert variable data or to alter the appearance of the footing. These control codes are:
When a footing line uses both G and C, the footing is considered as a number of elements separated by the G control options. The element that contains the C option will be centered. The items either side of the centered element are processed separately when calculating the number of spaces to be substituted for each G option.
A single quote may be inserted in the footing by use of two adjacent single quotes in the text.
If more than one FOOTING definition is given in a single query, the first one is used. This allows a query sentence to include a footing that will override an alternative footing in the default listing phrase.
