The Report Header and Report Footer are the only types of report bands rendered once per report.

The Report Header is the first band of a report on the first page (not counting margins as they are "out-of-page" zones). The Report Header also precedes the Page Header, making it the best place to display the report's name, company logo, date of creation and user name, etc.

And, if you plan to add a Chart that visualizes the report's data, place this control onto this band.

The Report Footer finalizes the informative part of the report. It is placed before the Page Footer and Bottom Margin on the report's last page. Use the Report Footer for report grand totals or conclusions.

In the Property Grid, the properties of these bands are divided into the following groups.
