Display the Current Date and Time in a Report

This tutorial demonstrates how to insert the current system date and time into a report using the Page Info control.
Do the following to include information about the current date and time into a report:
Typically, the current date and time are displayed within the Report Header band. To add it to the report, right-click anywhere on the report's surface. In the invoked menu, point to Insert Band and click ReportHeader.


Drop the Page Info control from the Toolbox onto the ReportHeader band.

Set the control's PageInformation property to DateTime (e.g. using the smart tag).

To apply a format string to the control's contents, type Created at {0:h:mm tt dd MMMM yyyy} into its TextFormatString property.
