Branding is important for every company, regardless of industry or size. Placing your company’s fonts, logo, and colors on every piece of collateral signifies a strong brand and improves professionalism.

It’s easy to specify the fonts, style, and data elements to print on the header and footer sections of standard reports using Report Format Maintenance in Sage 100. You can also define the font and style for the body of the report, and add images to the header and background of the standard report.

Sage 100 allows you to define one report format per company code and a report format is not specific to a user logon, workstation ID, or to the report. The only exception to this rule is the ability to override the font in the body of the report in the Printer Preferences window. In this case, the override is specific to workstation ID. Here are the steps:

To Define A Report Format in the Job Cost, Material Requirements Planning, Payroll, or Word Order module

By default, the header and footer use Arial 12 font and the body uses a variable size Times New Roman font.                                                                                                                               Defining report sections: Header, Body, and Footer
