How To Generate A Time Stamp On Excel Reports

Question

Is there a way to put the name of the report, person who created it, date and time for any exported report? For example:

P&L Summary 2016

Confidential Information - Do Not Distribute

Answer

With current functionality, only Repeating Reports will show this type of information when exported to Excel. A repeating report can be created by clicking the Repeating Reports icon in the Report Builder toolbar. This will add a spreadsheet tab to the bottom of the report builder.

Placing an element on this axis will cause the report to become a spreadsheet with one tab per element on the axis. For example, if you put Organization on the spreadsheet axis fully expanded, you would have a tab for each level in your structure.
